     4Successful Malayalam director, and one of the 
     5first to make the transition into big-budget 
     6Tamil films. Born in Alleppey, Kerala; theatre 
     7director and actor while at university. Degree 
     8in literature; later worked with Kavalam 
     9Narayana Panicker’s theatre group 
     10Thiruvarung. Film début assisting A. Vincent. 
     11Directorial début: the musical Manjil Virinja 
     12Pookkal which he also scripted and produced. 
     13Since then has been associated with the urban 
     14middle-class family musical melodrama, e.g. 
     15the Ilaiyaraja musical hit Poove Poo Chooda 
     16Va. His Tamil films are sometimes adapted 
     17from his own Malayalam hits (e.g. the 
     18melodrama Ente Mamattukuttiamma 
     19remakes En Bommu Kutti Ammavukku), 
     20although the incisiveness of the original 
     21(according to critic K. Hariharan) is usually 
     22diluted to suit the populist tastes of Tamil 
     23distributors. Varusham 16 was the Tamil debut 
     24of major star Khushboo. Co-directed the widely 
     25discussed Manichitratharazu.
