I am surprised that some ppl say that Rahman doesnt work for new directors. How many movies had Shankar directed before he did Gentleman?

shankar was new-but kunjumon was a mega producer in malayalam films before he came to tamil.

shanker had worked as assistant director for a few films that kunjumon had done (with kadir?) and kunjumon was impressed with the story of gentlemen.

Before the 90's we did not have cable TV. If a movie had good songs one had to go to the theater to watch it or even to listen to it. But these days, one can watch it as many times you want on cable or pirated versions!!

I'd herard that Shankar was assistant to Pavithran (of Suriyan fame...one-hit wonder?)

i refute the 3 below
it was also known for state-of-the-art music videos than... plus i didnt see many story lines resembling this movie in tamil movie history... maybe the movie isnt a great movie but its a good movie...
* Idhayathai Thirudathe
this movie was a class movie again unique story.... new faces and good picturization... nah... more than songs made this movie run ....
* Pudhu Pudhu Arthangal
no way man! u seem to trash manirathnam and KB bcoz their movies normally have good songs.... its not their fault if both songs and movie is good ....
i totally agree with china thambi.....
but ya'll missed "Meera" by P.C.Sriram.... thats a splendid example of a movie which will be rejected inspite of good songs and good picturization.. it shows that tamil people r intelligent .....
view the other movies from the meera perspective and you will understand what good movies are....
