The city is also host to Marina Beach which at 13km is the longest beach in India and was greatly affected by the 2004 tsunami. An agreeable place to visit in the evenings, it also hosts 'Tollywood' or the Tamil movie-making centre. Tollywood is quite a robust industry and, while not as large as the one in Mumbai, movies in the regional language give it an edge as most of the local population do not understand Hindi and prefer Tamil-language films. Some old buildings built by the British are local attractions.
