The Best debuts of 2008
Taking a look at those who made a great first impression in the year gone by…
Kannan & Sasikumar
The one whose vision is translated onto screen, a good debut is all the more important for such a high profile and responsible job.

No prizes for guessing the winner for the best directorial debut of 2008, it is Sasikumar for a cracker of a film in Subramaniapuram. We don’t have to say more about the man or the film, it was one of the most memorable debuts of recent times. Mani Ratnam’s assistant did not let his mentor’s reputation fall: Kannan with Jayam Kondaan. Then there was Jawahar who made a quite and no frills debut with the sedate Yaradi Nee Mohini, deft handling of a neat script.

Other impressive debuts include Saravanan, who delivered a well-balanced commercial with Silambaattam, Raju Eshwaran and Krishnan Seshadri Gomatam, both of whom dared to tread the rarely explored tracks with Panjamirtham and Mudhal Mudhal Mudhal Varai respectively. Viji graduated from dialogues to direction with Vellithirai, which was decent, while Adhi and Neelan K Shekhar made their own small marks with Silandhi and Alibaba.
