For example, for the upcoming Vinayakar Chathurthi function, I just happened to see the list of programs scheduled by Sun TV on that day:
- It has 4 feature films duirng the entire day.
- Interviews with Tamil Comedian Vadivelu, Namitha ( of all, why her???), Vinay and Bhavana etc.,
- Patti Mandram by Salamon Pappiah - what a bore it is turning out these days.. it has become so stale with the same catorie of people in this group.
There is not even a single programme about the Vinayakar Chathurthi function. It is a great pity and injustice perpetrated by the Sun TV on the vulnerable Tamil audience by making them completely focussed on Cinema.
When Sun TV was started 15 years ago and introduced programmes like interviews with movie stars, patti madram etc., it was considered a novelty. Now with everyday you getting so much footage about Cinema, I no longer consider Sun TV cinema-based programmes on important days to be interesting. For that matter, Vijay TV is much better than Sun TV on all counts. Even for the Vinayagar Chathurthi function, they have atleast 2 programmes dedicated to this function with somebody explaining the reasons and logic.
Sun TV's responsibility doesnt end with starting any auspicious day with "Mangala Isai". I am very curious to know if other channels of Sun Network like Kiran and Teja are also fooling people like this on auspicious days. Is it only Tamils who are taken for a ride or rest of all the Dravidians???
