Akshay-Kumar

R. Parthiban

Where: Oththa Seruppu: Size Seven

Why: Pudhiya Padhai released more than thirty ago and the man is still paving a new path in Tamil cinema with successful experiments like Oththa Seruppu: Size Seven. And R. Parthiban managed to do that with no one but himself in the one-man-showesque Tamil thriller. Experiments are a dime a dozen but the magic is how he pulled it off without alienating major sections of the audience. As he embarks on making his next, a single-shot feature film, we’re sure that the disruption will continue.
