Directors Myskin, K.S.Ravikumar, Sasikumar, Cheran, K.V.Anand
15 - K.V.Anand

He is known more for his camera work, especially Sivaji, than his directorial skills. Having made only one movie so far, one gets the feeling that he has not given his skills enough space to shine through.

Last Film: Kanaa Kandein - Most striking was Anand’s casting; putting Prithviraj in a villain role was an experiment that worked wonders, both for the movie and the actor. The expectations his upcoming movie, Ayan has generated talks volume about his brand value.

Box Office Verdict: Average

Upcoming: Ayan

Exclusive K.V.Anand video interview -1
14 - Cheran

Tamil cinema’s family man, making movies that everyone can watch and enjoy, invariably carrying a message. His simple style of film making never fails to touch a chord, especially Thavamai Thavamirindhu.

Last Film: Mayakkannadi - a movie that was meant as a firebrand for youngsters, carrying a very pertinent message. But it failed to create any ripples.

Box Office Verdict: Flop

Upcoming: Pokkisham

13 - Sasikumar

He made what one has to call a dream debut. Subramaniapuram has redefined Tamil cinema perceptions. Set in Madurai of the 1980s, every scene reflects the efforts and skills of the director. Having apprenticed under Bala and Ameer, Sasi Kumar is destined for big things.

Last Film: Subramaniapuram - Not only did the movie become a hit, it also stood strong in the face of biggies like Kuselan and Sathyam and emerged unscathed, testimonial to the film’s top notch quality.

Box Office Verdict: Hit

Upcoming: Unannounced.

12 - K.S.Ravikumar

The commercial king of Tamil cinema who always knows the pulse of the audience. One of the few directors to have worked with a wide range of actors - from the Superstar to Sarath Kumar to Silambarasan.

Last Film: Dasavatharam - one of the greatest milestones in Indian cinema. And one of the most complex projects, executed with a masterstroke.

Box Office Verdict: Blockbuster

Upcoming: Untitled venture with Sarath Kumar

11 - Myskin

The silent killer in Kollywood. His films arrive quietly but stay on for a long time. Just a couple of films old and he has already proved his worth. A director to watch out for.

Last Film: Anjaathey - a casting delight with chocolate boy Prasanna and comic hero Pandiarajan in negative roles.Anjaathey - a casting delight with chocolate boy Prasanna and comic hero Pandiarajan in negative roles.
