Subtle subtitling

A nice piece on the art of subtitling South Indian movies.  Rekha Haricharan from Chennai has done the english subtitles of over 48 movies which such passion for keeping to the spoken word that it has won her much praise and following.  It is ever so important in world where the english language dominates and Hollywood blockbusters rule to have a alternative movies from non-english cultures to have good subtitles for this is the thin line that separates its success from its relegation into oblivion on the world stage.
