The current best 10 mot powerful men in Tamil Cinema

There are people in Kollywood who work tirelessly behind the scenes and in front of it too, to change / improve the image of Tamil cinema in the country and across the globe. We are talking about powerful men in the industry who can make or influence cinema in a positive way. Let us not confuse the word powerful: Here it refers to the respect people have on them and their power to bring in change.

AVM

Started by AV Meiyappan in the year 1946, AVM is one of the oldest production houses in the country. Right from Naam Iruvar to the latest Vettaikaran, AVM studios have never shown signs of slowing down. They can take pride in introducing so many talents to the cinema industry and producing movies which have been classics. A brand with whom any director or actor would be proud to be associated with, AVM studios is probably the first to invest big in cinema. Their production Sivaji, starring Rajini, was made at a cost of nearly Rs. 65 crore which was the costliest Indian movie at that time. It is currently owned by M Saravanan and his son, MS Guhan.

Kalaipuli S. Thanu

He is arguably the man who instilled 'hugeness' in Tamil cinema. Known for his big-budget movies, Kalaipuli S. Thanu was the one who gave the 'Superstar' tag to Rajini. Such is his vision that he decided to spend so much at the start of the century for the movie Aalavandhan. His passion still continues as we saw in Kandasamy. Videos in invitation cards, adopting villages: is there anything this man cannot do? A great visionary who can make the change he wants. Actress Simran must be thankful to Mr. Thanu for what she is today.

Kalpathi S. Agoram

Kalpathi S. Agoram is already a powerful figure in the industry though he is relatively new to producing Kollywood movies. Churning out movies under the banner AGS Entertainment Pvt. Ltd, he has produced big-budget films like Irumbukkottai Murattu Singam and Madrasapattinam. His influence has made a very positive impact in the approach of the industry. Insiders hope he continues to invest more in cinema which can help change our identity in the global market. Hey, have you bought the audio CD of his latest movie Engeyum Kadhal?

Dayanidhi / Udhayanidhi

The duo belongs to the latest generation of producers / distributors. Both being grandsons of the Chief Minister, their selection of distributing or producing movies strike the right chord with the audience. If Dayanidhi owns Cloud Nine movies, Udhayanidhi holds charge of Red Giant movies. Be it Vaaranam Aariyum, Tamil Padam and Naan Mahaan Alla from Cloud Nine or Aadhavan, Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa and Boss Engira Bhaskaran from Red Giant, people are assured that their taste buds are never left bland. The duo has a huge responsibility of taking Tamil Cinema to greater heights. Have you watched Mynaa or atleast know the audio release date of Manmadhan Ambu?

Aascar Ravichandran

Being involved in the industry for more than 12 years, Aascar Ravichandran started with Kaadhalukku Mariyadhai as a distributor. The impact he has made in Kollywood since then has been immense. His penchant for making huge movies was seen in Anniyan and took monstrous proportions in Dasavatharam. One of the few who is always in demand in the industry, Aascar Ravichandran never ceases to surprise. Will Vijay find his magic again in Velayudham as he did in Kaadhalukku Mariyadhai?

AR Rahman

Probably the quietest in the list but he is as powerful as any other in the industry. We thought he will be a gentle breeze in Kollywood. He surged forward as a powerful wind in Bollywood and stormed the world with two Oscars. Rahman's powers lie in the fact that each producer and director dream about having him in their movies. So many projects have been delayed because of his hectic schedule but still people want him. Shortly put, he is the man in demand. By the way, do you know that he has scored music for the Hollywood movie 'Couples retreat' and Danny Boyle's latest '127 hours'?

Shankar

Visual splendor, magnificence, grandeur, magnum-opus- add more superlatives to this man who changed the style of Tamil cinema. Be it sending a social message, exotic locales or science fiction, Shankar has been the charm of Tamil cinema for the past 15 years or so. If 'Impossible is nothing' is a cliche, then it has been proved right by Shankar. With such a positive influence in the industry, he is the only one who can dare. We wonder what is Shankar's next destination - The moon?

Mani Ratnam

Actors praise God and Lady Luck if they get to act in a Mani Ratnam movie. He is one of very few directors to command respect in Bollywood too. He is the only director to make a Pan-Indian movie. A respected figure across the world, Mani has earned the reputation of being the boldest when it comes to taking up social issues. His quiet personality is often misleading as his influence in the industry has no bounds. The latest talk of the town is who will act in Mani Ratnam's next movie 'Ponniyin Selvan': Kamal, Vikram or Surya?

Kamal Hassan

Having completed 50 years in Tamil cinema, Kamal is multi-faceted to say the least. He proved that he has a global audience with Dasavatharam. Though trade pundits feel that Kamal has lesser mass appeal than Rajinikanth, cinema insiders feel otherwise. He is the man with the Midas touch. Anyone who rubs shoulders with him becomes a major bigwig in the industry. People queue up to work with him or just to associate themselves with him. If he can invite Jackie Chan for Dasavatharam audio release, who will it be this time for Manmadhan Ambu?

Rajnikanth

If there is someone who induces producers to invest unimaginable amounts of money in their movies, it must be Rajinikanth. The reason: he has mass appeal and is a rage across India and the globe. Forget the commerce, Rajini proved his mass appeal in Sivaji which grossed more than Rs. 100 crore. Now with Endhiran, he has proved that there is none in India who can be as powerful as him when it comes to global reach. Would you say no to Rajinikanth's dates if you are a producer?

Kalanidhi Maran

A media baron, leading industrialist and a share in the aviation sector as well! Kalanidhi Maran and his Sun Pictures have made a remarkable change in Kollywood. A very powerful and influential person, Mr Maran's Sun Pictures started with distributing movies like Kadhalil Vizhunthen, Padikathavan, Ayan, Sura and Singam. He changed the dynamics of Tamil cinema by producing Endhiran at a cost of nearly Rs. 160 crore. Who else can make a movie which stars Rajinikanth, Aishwarya Rai, director Shankar and AR Rahman?
