Abstract

Cinema has a huge amount of capacity to influence the audience. And it is because of this attribute that films either go on to become huge hits or a big disappointment. Everything depends on how the audience receives each film. Director S. Shankar has a track record of 100% success and this by any means, is a big achievement. Favourably for Shankar, even the critics have stayed away from dismissing his films from being just a commercial entertainer and for most of his work; there has been immense appreciation from their side. To contemplate more on the success story, there is a specific pattern observed in all his films and arguably, they have played a vital role in deciding the success. And these patterns are not just about the theme or the casting for which many other directors are known for. As a matter of fact, he does not follow the theory of developing a success combination with the actors. This is one such example of many other important yet unnoticed patterns followed by the director. The research paper attempts to identify and explain each pattern found in all or at least, in most of his films. The research also tries to identify the role of the film crew behind the success of Shankar’s films.
