Top 10 Tamil Film Directors

The Top Ten
1 Shankar S.

Hi SS, Thanks a lot for your wonderful movies so far. You are the father of Directors in Tamil Film industry. I love your movies so much. All films are unique and super hit. Keep doing Good work. May God bless you and give success in all the way.

The best... His movies might not be as classical as mani's but still he has the all the abilities in this world to pull off a movie like mani's. But he s still sticked to commercial movies,

Sir, I would like to work with you so please give me the grate opportunity but I didn't have any industrial experience but I love cinema so any one can stop me. I believe you and waiting for you call. my contact number is 99520 20007.

He is the James Cameroon of Tamil film industry.
One of the best, Indian film indutry has seen...

2 A.R. Murugadoss

Without good script he never make the film... but some other directors are make simple concept and show very big... I think My opinion 1. AR murugadas 2. Bala 3. Shankar Why shankar is third place means he is also very tallented guy but script wise he is little more concentrate... Ar Murugads Script and entertain both amazing... Bala sir you just improve your entertain skill

A.R. Murugadoss won't write a script like other directors...
His way of story line is somewhat different.
He can manage and direct all kind of other language movies...
Refer all the movies done by him and tell who is number 1.

Yes, His story never depends the cost of the shot, his shot and meaning value is higher then shankar.

He should be number 1, because shankar failed in Hindi movies, but he only the king both south and north India.

Murugadoss sir is the best director I seen in my life he shows the true'about the society and what are the problems peoples are facing in real life so films is different but the points in the films is excellent...I God aim is to be a assistant director for Murugadoss.

3 Mani Ratnam

He is a praised gift for the Tamil film industry... He is the one who can make the film a mega hit or reasonable with his story itself... Hats off to mani sir... Bombay, guru... What kind of films al these.. These kind of films come once in a century.. Am a great of his talent... Once again hats off to his talent.. Before him shankar is nothing... He only wastes money..

MANI SIR is the only reality film maker! And all time hit film maker. His films like iruvar, roja, naayagan and so on... Speaks for his talent.

Sir I am a big fan of you. Also I am a good singer. I have watched your all movies and your default music director is AR RAHMAN contact number is 8754148482. Sorry to give my number but it's the only way to contact you. Please give me a chance. I am a good singer. I also sing mental manadhil song from OK kanmani

Mani sirs film are nice films...
Compare to shankars film he makes lot of logic mistake... In manis film we can't find that.
Mani is the number 1 director... Shankar is 3rd 2nd is A.R. murugadoss

4 Gautham Menon

The best director in terms of story, direction and narration. His presence brings out the best of actors and music directors. Harris and A.R. Rahman flourish under him. Brings realistic and gritty films whilst making it a critically and comercially successful. An inspiration to all.

He creates his own movies which all the youngsters like... Awesome director but I would request him to take a film with rajinkanth as hero and Anirudh or g.v.prakash as music director in his direction... I love his each and every film... please GVM make my wish true...

Very good films done by you.
I am interested in acting on your films

Mass Director of all times. He always has Excellent Screenplay in his films

He is one of the best director in tamil cinema and he is best than shankar

Because h
E is good T.V. poo...

6 Bala

He is great at his vision of movies, never ever think about positives and negatives feedback from others, this is what the a good capability of a film maker, he is simply deserved with lot of hardwork and thinking, nice to have him in a tamil cinema, we are really proud of you bala!

Bala is no:2 after Mani. Sankar is #3. Bala is different, he has a huge fan following inspite of his dark story line. Most of his films are commercial hits and all his films are critically acclaimed. He is a talented Tamilian. Sticks to roots. Not influenced by any other film or director. All his works are his and not copy. Bala can never be below Guatham menon & A. R Muragadoss. Gautham to be honest has done good job only in Khakha Khaka, all other movies are slow and does not engage audience. Muragadoss has done good job in Gajini & a VijayKanth movie, all other movies are not good.

Whoever say whatever... He is the real director... His movie will travel in a straight line with the story.. ! No distractions... No shoving of glamour.. ! Every movie is a piece of perfection...


If you are speaking the word director thn you should speak abt bala. Bala is the person who only can make the film of an real life heroes. Like you all and me. He is the the director no one can match him in current and for ever.

7 Selvaraghavan

I watched all his movies...ah...that 2-3 hrs I'm mesmerized.
murugadoss maniratnam Bala are also best,
But the film aayirathil oruvan shows he is best among them.
He is the path breaker of Tamil cinema as mani ratnam said.

I'm also a big fan of him...
