Bala
Bala
Bala (Tamil: born 11 July 1966) is an Indian Tamil film director, screenwriter and film producer, working in the Tamil film industry. Widely credited with having revolutionised Tamil cinema, he is best known for his realistic, yet dark and disturbing films, considered landmark films, that have garnered high critical acclaim. He has received several awards and recognition for his work, including the National Film Award for Best Direction for his fourth feature film Naan Kadavul.

He started his film career as an assistant director for the famous National Film AwardĂ˘â‚¬â€œwinning director and cinematographer Balu Mahendra, where a close friendship between the two grew.
Bala is known for his later success. He made his directorial debut with Sethu in 1999, that gave a break to Vikram, the film's lead actor, who was also struggling in the Tamil film industry for almost a decade without a hit and recognition. More than 60 distributors saw the film and hesistated to screen it because of its tragic ending. But after multiple preview shows, the film was released on a low profile without any advertisement. But after the first days the film started running to packed houses just through 'word of mouth'. The film was said to have initiated a 'new wave' as it received raving reviews and became a huge hit. Its stupendous success led to remakes in Kannada (Huchcha), Telugu (Seshu) and Hindi (Tere Naam) languages. Ameer, the director of the Block-buster film Paruthiveeran is his assistant.
Bala's next film was Nandha which gave a career boost to Surya. His third film Pithamagan broke all the sentiments which were prevailing in Tamil cinema. In 2009 he released Naan Kadavul in Tamil featuring Arya and Pooja Umashankar for which he won his first National Film Award for Best Director.
