Rathna Kumar has helmed films like ‘Meyaadha Maan’ and ‘Aadai’. Both the films were well received and emerged commercially successful. While ‘Meyaadha Maan’ was a fun rom-com, ‘Aadai’ starring Amala Paul dealt with a more serious and daring subject. Upon release, Rathna had garnered critical appreciation for his filmmaking skills.
