A comment per movie mentioned here.
Anand, makkal paesraanga...padam vandha thaan theriyum!
In an earlier discussion with Anand, he mentioned that Indian directors/producers grossly underestimate audience' intelligence. I have to agree with him. Good script will work.

True. But Indian audiences prefer scripts that are simple. Not complex whodonits that twist and rack your brains. Memento requires an aura of seriousness without the emotional ride associated with serious movies. That is not going to work.
Most of the Indian movies need to have masala to succeed. Anbe Sivam needed those songs and a heroine to sell commercially. Imagine that movie without songs and heroine. It would have been all time classic instead of another very good movie.

Could be a costly experiment, but if such not-so-simple scripts turn out to be successful, we may have another genre. Apart from 'masala', that is.
