Trend of Tamil film recently can be divided into two types. One is a typical drama and comedy under influence of common Bollywood film which is continued since 1920. The other is an art house cinema which totally erased Tamil’s color. Interestingly enough, Waterbirds is different to both styles. Arulappasamy is a young man who is an alcoholic and wastrel who is a constant embarrassment for his hardworking parents. Esther is an orphan girl who is adopted by a nun and she stays in the church. Arulappasamy gets attracted to Esther and his love for her, changes him. He gives up drinking and wants to work so that he can marry Esther. But the local fishermen do not allow him to go into the sea. The young man due to his determination buys a boat, marries his love and life is all rosy, till fate intervenes. The film shows Christian sentiment as the film set basis on Tamil’s original life where western religion is difficult to be accepted. The film solves a collision between old days and nowadays making the best use of regional characteristics of Tamil. Absorbing trend from European cinema, recent Indian cinema is seeking new breakthrough and Waterbirds is the masterpiece in the front line of the movement.
