Everyday Tamil Cinema surprises you by the fascinating new thoughts of young filmmakers. Here is one that's bound to create history. 'Karma' a film directed by Arvind Ramalingam has created history by making Kavi Perarasu Vairamuthu write new 'Kural' and have recorded it in his voice as well. When asked about it Kavi Perarasu Vairamuthu said 'Karma film Director Arvind Ramalingam and Music Director L.V.Ganesan met me and said that they are planning to do the title credits differently, and for that if they had asked a song wouldn't be surprised but they said they needed 'Kural' like Thirukkral. I liked the idea. There are 133 chapters in Thirukkural and there is a chapter called 'Oozhvinai'. I have written 10 kurals slightly related and slightly not related to 'Oozhvinai'. They have recorded these 10 kurals in my voice. I thank Arvind Ramalingam and L.VGanesan for the opportunity.

Moreover he said 'After I wrote and recorded it, now I think that how Thiruvalluvar would have written Thirukkural for this generation. Thirukkural was written more than 2000 years ago. Times and lives have changed a lot since then. Thiruvaluvar is not here, no one is there in his heights. So I am planning to write 133 Chapters of Thirukkural for the new generation as how Thiruvalluvar would have written it. If in future this happens I am proud to say that the credits for the same would go to Karma film Director Arvind Ramalingam and Music Director L.V.Ganesan.'

'Karma' is a Tamil film produced by Creative Criminal Productions and Directed by Arvind Ramalingam.

ChallengeOptimus is a mobile phone company based in Portugal. Their task was to create a brand experience targeted to young people within a big music festival context. They provided a solution by a service called “Broad Shoulders”. Ten big men offered their Broad Shoulders for people to climb in order to see better the concerts or just to find a lost friend amongst the crowd. This service was greatly accepted by young people, creating word of mouth in the three days of the music festival as more people were asking for the Broad Shoulders service.

Director Nacho Gayán goes underground to offer us a totally different look
of the sports world. Outside big stadium and crowds, the ultimate challenge
is to face your inner fears, gaining success and respect among equals.

100 gipsy drummers get together with world class athletes in the new Nike’sad. The film introduces us into industrial settings and marginal stages toview a tension charged fight. The atmosphere´s intensity grows at thestrong beat of the public clapping and the occasional defying shouts thatcontenders address to each other.
