We generally tend to confuse between Novels and the Films which are carved out of them, thinking that they are same.
But they are totally different things as Films based on Novels have some similaritie as they are extracted from the novel itself but they can’t be exactly the same.
Addressing a seminar on Novels and Films organized by The Tamil Department, SRM Institute of Science and Technology in Kattankulathur, Actor and Academician Prof C Karthikeyan said that novel and films based on novels have many similarties and differences. He said, “films based on novels have many things changed in it. Story will have some differences it won’t be the same what is there in the novel.”
The Seminar began with the welcome address by Dr B Jaiganesh, the Head of the Department of Tamil ensued by the presidential address by the Director of The Faculty of Science and Humanities Dr R Balasubramanian.
