Full Biography of Director Kathir

Kathir is an Indian film director, producer, and screenwriter known for his works predominantly in Tamil cinema.

Kathir was born in Kalkarai, a small village in the Radhapuram district of Thirunelveli, state of Tamil Nadu, India. Kathir grew up in a middle-class family as the only son along with his three sisters. His father Subbiah was a farmer and mother Isakiammal assisted him in his farming. Kathir had his elementary schooling in Kalkarai Chiristian elementary school. He finished his 5th standard there and joined Nehru middle school, Vadakangulam.

After completing his 8th standard there he attended the Concordia high school, Vadakangulam for just one year to study 9th standard. Then joined St. Teresa's school in Vadakangulam. He completed his school studies here. Kathir got into to the College of Fine arts and Crafts, Chennai. He did a five-year course in Fine arts and graduated with a Diploma in Fine Arts.

In 2001, he founded his own production studio Sound Light Studio through which he produced Kadhal Virus. He also distributed the film all over Tamil Nadu. After the success of Kadhal Desam, Kathir scripted and was ready to make a film titled I Love You by 1997. After being unable to produce the film himself, he shelved the venture. He moved on to briefly begin pre-production work on a project titled Bangalore in late 1999, before opting not to continue.

Kathir announced a comeback in 2008 and began work on a film titled Manavar Dhinam with Vinay in the lead role. Following a delay, the actor was replaced by Srikanth and a launch was held in 2009 by the production house Ayngaran International.However, the film was later shelved and the pair decided to collaborate for the new venture titled Kodai Vidumurai.

The film underwent a change in cast and work on the film, featuring Shaam, began again in July 2012.The film has since failed to make progress.
He is married to Shanthinidevi in 2013.
