Suryah's style of film making is unique, taking the viewer in
to the plot itself with a fantastic narrative of the story. His first film,
Vaali with Ajith as the hero in Tamil, was a huge runaway hit playing for 270
days. It had an adult theme and went off well with the audience.
Suryah followed that with the multi-lingual, Khushi which was a huge
money-spinner in Tamil and Telugu but did not fare too well in Hindi. After a
hiatus for nearly two years, he came up with another blockbuster, New in which
Suryah played the lead role apart from directing and producing the film. The
film's opening is considered to be one of the biggest in Tamil cinema in recent
years, with over Rs.1.1 crore being collected on the first day at the
box-office. The film's music by noted composer A. R. Rahman had created waves in
the audio market. However, the movie was banned by the Madras High Court in
August 2005, a year after it collected huge revenues in the box office. His
fourth venture in Tamil as a director was "Anbe Aaruyire" which was initially
titled "Best Friend". Though this movie wasn't as big a hit as Vaali and Khushi,
his fans enjoyed the movie.
