Chennai: The Tamil film industry, true to its prolific image, has churned out as many as 135 films this year. But the disappointing news: despite the spiralling numbers, Box Office success has been hitting rock bottom. According to trade pundits, while total investment has been about Rs 600 crore, filmmakers failed to recover even half the investment."Jiiva`s `Ko`, Karthi`s `Siruthai`, Ajith`s `Mankatha` and Surya`s `7aum Arivu` have made good collections," says R Ramanujan, editor of Tamil Nadu Entertainment Trade Magazine."`7aum Arivu`, a science fiction thriller written and directed by AR Murugadoss, hasn`t fetched profit for the distributors, while actioner ‘Mankatha’ was a loss making venture for its producers despite it collecting around Rs 50 crore at the Box Office," he added.
