If I were to start listing from PC Sreeram, the list would continue like this. PC Sreeram[Meera], Santhosh Sivan[Terrorist], Rajeev Menon[Minsaara Kanavu], Jeeva[12b] and now KV Anand. You know what the list is about. KV Anand joins the list of cameraman-turned-director with his new flick Kanaa Kanden.
Kanaa Kanden will have Srikanth and Gopika[Vandallo Vandallo] star the movie with Vidyasagar on the tunes and Subha[Suresh & Balaji] with the dialogues. Hindu says, Kanaa Kandein is a racy romantic thriller. The photo and the ads are already out and they look classy. Anand remarks that he missed Swades and Anniyan for persuing this one. Hopefully this venture would make him forget that fact.

All the VERY Best to this new directorial venture. The photo looks stunning and quite different. I heard that AM Ratnam was slated to produce this film but now seems to have pulled out of it… Hope this director gets his steady cashflow to make his dream-come-true
A post in Kribs blog is rocking high,because of its controversial content..i expected your comments there.About the issue and the idea of blogging that issue itself.
Cool News. Lets hope he turns out to be successful!
You missed ‘Oli Ooviyar’Thangar bachan in that list ! ( Also Oldies like Ashok kumar ,Panner selvam ,who released their films after Meera ..)
Need to wait ,if that risk of missing Swades & Anniyan really worth it ..
I knew someone is going to point out a huge list that I missed out due to bad memory.
Thangar Bachan should have been there. Ashok Kumar also did a couple of films. Panneer Selvam – which film did he do ?
I should have also added BR Vijayalakshmi(Pattu Paadavaa). She was a camera woman. Anyway I did put it here so that should be fine.
Any more missing in the list ? Please list it here.
Guess you missed the great guy Balumahendra!
Yeah !! But Balu Mahendra remarked various inerviews that though he was looked upon as a cinematographer, while he studied in pune institute, he wanted to become a director. since we know that I wanted to see him as a full-time director who also did camera work.
Swades, i have my own doubts.
The pictures and the storyline looks promising.. but it may not be a big hit..[either ways cant accept Shah Rukh khan as a Project Manager in NASA.. could have been more realistic]
Guru – I think your list is quite elaborate…
I am not quite sure, and correct me if I am wrong, but TEJA (Mr. Midas of Telugu Industry) of Jai Ram fame (!!) is also a cameraman-turned-director………
i like your blog quite a bit, lazygeek.
but its starting to look more like a film portal nowadays!!
what’s the funda?
