    Tamil films nowadays depict even rowdies as heroes and these heros cajole threaten entice and what not to persuade the heroiens to fall in love and marry them. This is reflected in true life. It is high time censor board put some break on such scenes and ensure that films are for entertainment and not otherwise.
