The Sinhala people would either love it or reject it.
However things have changed for the better, good quality Sinhala movies are being made. Top quality songs are being recorded that are being introduced in Sri Lankan in particular Sinhala movies. Sinhala songs too have matured; proper technicians are now making music while Sri Lankan music composers are now coming out of innovative ideas and composing with great care.
