T.Hariharan,

Malayalam director born in Calicut. Arts teacher in Kerala and film critic; also associated with the theatre. Became assistant to M.S. Mani in Madras (1960) and to M. Krishnan Nair. Continued as assistant until successful directorial début in 1973 with a hit about a wealthy young woman who returns from Singapore and is sought after for her money. Panchagni was a major hit, as was Sargam, starring Manoj K. Jayan. Films often written by M.T. Vasudevan Nair addressing the latter’s favoured themes revisiting the condition of a declining feudal Nair community (e.g. Parinayam). Made one Hindi film, Anjaam. Along with I.V. Sasi, represents a cinema implicated in the economy of Kerala’s migrant workers in the Middle East in the 1980s.
