Kaaviya Thalaivan (2014)
This film might have not performed to the best levels in box office, but it is still the best attempt by entire team as everyone exerted their inmost heart and soul into the project. The film traversing through the lives of ancient drama artists shows up the theme of Guru-disciple, friendship, betrayal, love and tragedy. The film was highly appreciated for the tremendous nuance performance of Siddarth, Prithviraj, Vedhika and musical score by AR Rahman.
Based on a famous novel about the struggling workers at tea plantations, the film directed by Bala featured Atharvaa Murali, Vedhika and Dhansika in lead roles. The film had such an appealing response across the global panorama and the pains of those labor workers were depicted with more intensity.
A poetic love story that goes beyond ages from Pre-Independence era backdrops with an old lady coming back to Chennai after many years to find her man separated by fate and destiny. Although, the film was set against the ancient backdrops, it didn’t showcase much upon the independence revolt and struggle, but it didn’t miss to show the beautiful locales of ancient Madras.
This Prakash Raj-Shriya Reddy starrer ‘Kanchivaram’, directed by critically acclaimed Priyadarshan. The film won several international and national accolades.

A cult crime-noir from the soils of Madurai that traces back to the lives of four friends, who had their best moments in life, but situations push them to the inevitable pains and loss in their lives. The film featured Sasikumar, Jai and Swathi in lead roles. This film projected the nativity and lifestyle of Madurai during the retro periods, which was highly appreciated.
