Guru Dhanapal (2 March 1959 – 18 April 2014) was an Indian film director, who worked in Tamil cinema.

Guru Dhanapal made his directorial debut with Unna Nenachen Pattu Padichen (1992) starring Karthik, Sasikala and Monisha in leading roles. In the 1990s, the director made a series of film starring Sathyaraj in the lead role, achieving box office success with Thai Maaman (1994) after which he made Maaman Magal (1995) and Periya Manushan (1997). The three films were described as "routine comedy masala ventures" and were filmed in very quick schedules.
