What is a classic novel?

What is a classic novel?

It should be contemporary, non theoretical.

It can cover a season or a life.

Mixing generations and mysticism (rebirth) steps outside the classic definition.

Kalki's Ponniyin Selvan is a classic historical novel, set with sort of real life events. Got it?

Pitahmagan movie by Vikram is a classic movie by Bala, which cannot be written. So the movie media can be classic in a certain aspect, including Sarkar Raj.

Dasavatharam is pure fiction and action.
