Naveen began his film career as writer, director, and producer with his first movie, Moodar Koodam.

So he decided to produce the film on his own and launched White Shadows Productions. Director Pandiraj (of Pasanga movie fame) distributed the movie through his production house. Moodar Koodam was critically acclaimed and Naveen was appreciated for his screenplay, direction, and dialogues, winning the Best Dialogues award at the 8th Annual Vijay TV Awards.
