2010 saw the entry of several fresh directors into the industry, some of whom left a pertinent mark. There were the veteran directors as well, but several of them found it difficult to go with the ebb or create an impact. nowrunning.com presents five directors who bowled us over with their fantastic films this year.
Ranjith has been throwing several surprises on us over the last few years, and this year was no different. He gave us the delectable Pranchiyettan and the Saint, that was in many ways much more than a mere bold move. No wonder then, that he is looked upon as the harbinger of change in Malayalam cinema today.
Ranjith managed a unique mix of satire and comedy in 'Pranchiyettan and the Saint' and it was indeed a tight ropewalk indeed for the director to juggle between fantasy and reality. In doing so he brought down heaven as close to earth and opened up a new universe before us where God and man beautifully blended into one.Image:
