    Producers of the first Tamil film to be made in Sri Lanka, in more than 40 years, hope it is the start of a homegrown revival.

    Tamils normally watch movies made in India, because the local industry has been crippled by decades of war and lack of experienced movie makers.

    Al Jazeera's Minelle Fernandez reports from Colombo, Sri Lanka.
