Top 10 Tamil Film Directors

The Top Ten
1 Shankar S.

Real James Cameroon Of India I am huge fan of Shankar Sir. Enthiran is brilliant Movie. His Movie has amazing Social messages.

He is amazing director in Tamil industry..very talented and script writter..he is the one always passionate about latest technology to use in his movies..For my perspective he is the number 1 director in Indian cinema...

Sir I am very lucky to share my personal opinial to you sir and I am LOGESH from Chennai city and I my childhood aim is aeronautical engineer and now you had changed my idea and my path sir your creations are unbelievable and extraordinary sir and I want to join as assistant director to you sir. Please accept my truly request to enrich my creative thought with your help my master.

He is the GOD of the direction. No one can beat his range even murugadas. And of course he is the Indian James Cameron. Hope I will work with you as a assistant director. Remember my name sir. I'm RKD surely ill work with u. Because ill never believe in my range nor background nor money but ill believe in my talent. Bottom of my heart hat's of u sir

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

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.

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.

3 Mani Ratnam

World class film maker. He is my inspiration. My dream is to become a director. Many technical and film aspects I learn from mani's film. When I was watching his movie at first time, I was in full mood of happiness at least two days. Thinking his movie feels me mind bogling and gives freshness to my life. I don't know whether I can direct a movie in this life period, if not I wll be make a movie like mani at my next life... M A N I R A T N A M... A REAL FILM MAKER..

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.

Thala maniratnam dhaan mass... All his films are mega hit,... Best director in world... No one can make film like him...

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...

Gautham Menon became very popular due to his Story & Direction. Almost he know to give Feel good Film in His Journey

A person who copies script from other movies especially other language movies

5 K.S. Ravikumar

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

Best director in tamil cinema industry

Mass Director in Tamil cinema

6 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.

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!

A visionary film maker.No one in India has shown India in a way like Bala shown.Always chosen wonderful concepts and told it beautifully.He actually shown that around us there are so many story to be told just that we don't notice and unfortunately our Indian film makers who copy from western movies should watch his movies and learn a lesson

Bala is the only director who direct the different film he is very simple person he is the only director pick up the acting skill of all heros,

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.
His direction,screenplay was awesome.
I'm also a big fan of him...
