Abstract:

This paper reflects on the portrayal of alcoholism and raises concerns over the glorification of alcohol and stalking of women in the song-dance sequences in Tamil films. The Tamil film industry known as Kollywood, is one of the largest in India and recently these films tend to forcibly incorporate a song sequence which shows young men singing and dancing under the influence of alcohol and the lyrics are loaded with content that is predominantly chauvinistic or misogynistic.
