One shall learn to compromise as a debutant: Senthil Kumar
The director admits that at times compromising won't result in a win win situation.

Chennai: A film is not a one-man show, but the output of a team and, therefore, it's important to compromise wherever needed, says first time director R S Durai Senthil Kumar, whose debut Tamil film 'Ethir Neechal', released recently. "It's easy to get carried away after you don the hat of a director. But, a film is not a one-man show, it's a team effort and, therefore, it's important to compromise especially as a debutant to work in unison towards a common goal," Senthil told IANS.

"I'm sure every debutant director would have come across the need to compromise while working on his or her film. Those who co-operated would have evolved successfully, while the rest may have become history," he added. Did you compromise while working on 'Ethir Neechal'? "Yes, I did to some extent because I was working with senior technicians and artists and sometimes, you have to give preference to seniority even if you don't like it. I learnt all this because I worked as an assistant director for 10 years," Senthil added. He worked as assistant director to Balu Mahendra and Vetrimaaran.

Senthil admits at times compromising won't result in a win-win situation. "Not all compromises will make both parties happy, but it's important to come to a consensus because it eventually affects the output of the film. Especially, as a debutant, one needs make some sacrifices for greater good," he added.

'Ethir Neechal' is produced by Dhanush and features Sivakarthikeyan, Priya Anand, Nandita and Jayaprakash.
