Tamil cinema witnessed a unique spectacle last week on November 19th.

Three of the four movies which released had the director playing a lead role in it too.

What a pleasant coincidence. Here is a brief on the released movies.

First off Nagaram with Sunder C who comes back after a five year long hiatus plays the director- actor.

The actor/director says, ‘Riding simultaneously on two horses is tough. But I hope that I have succeeded in it,’

Secondly in Mandira Punnakai Karu Pazhaniappan is playing a pivotal role .He has  a reputation for making decent movies.

He quips, ‘Like my earlier ventures, Mandhira Punnagai will also be based on a strong script. There are is no glamour, no hi-fi action scenes and no glitzy sets,’

Thirdly Magizhchi has Gowthaman taking the actors seat. Moreover it has Seeman who also is a well known director. The movie is based on the legendary novel, Thalaimuraigal.

Its intriguing to see directors spreading their talents into a wider spectrum to understand their art through an actor’s eyes.

Well Experimentation is always good, and we hope these directors reach great heights and bring a new dimension to cinema .
