Having started his career as an assistant to the extremely talented Balu Mahendra, Director Bala has delivered his goods from the day one. His first film Sethu showcased an as yet undiscovered Vikram and launched him to stardom.
Surya was his next protege, Bala’s second film Nandha was a game changer for the romantic soft-spoken Surya of yesteryear. His third film Pithamagan broke all rules and won a national award for Vikram. Naan Kadvul saw Arya in an unbelievable role of a lifetime, with almost the entire film shot in Kasi. Subsequently, Bala’s films Avan Ivan and Paradesi won critical acclaim for his lead actors.
A good director can bring out his best but only a great director can bring out the best in others. We salute the brilliant creator and wish many more success on his birthday.
Happy Birthday Bala sir!
