Red Giant Movies is an Indian film production and distribution company headed by Udhayanidhi Stalin.

History[edit]

The proposed venture of the studio was meant to be a collaboration between director Thamizhvaanan and actor Vishal, but the film never took off.[1] Subsequently, the first production of Red Giant Movies was the action drama Kuruvi (2008) starring Vijay, following which the studio financed K. S. Ravikumar's Aadhavan (2009) starring Suriya.[2] The studio later worked on big budget films including the Kamal Haasan-starrer Manmadan Ambu (2010) and AR Murugadoss's 7aum Arivu (2011).

The studio received acclaim in 2010, when all four of its distribution projects, Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, Madrasapattinam, Boss Engira Bhaskaran and Mynaa became commercial successes.[3] In the case of Mynaa, the studio received praise for backing and choosing to purchase a small budget film and helping market it as a bigger film.[4] From the end of 2011, Red Giant Movies has concentrated solely on producing films starring Udhayanidhi Stalin in the lead role.[5][6]
