Full Biography of Director Mysskin

Mysskin (born Shanmugha Raja on 20 September 1971) is an Indian film director and screenwriter. He chose Mysskin as his pen name inspired by Prince Myshkin, the protagonist in Dostoevsky's novel The Idiot. He made his directorial debut in 2006 with Chithiram Pesuthadi. His other directorials Anjathe and Nandalala received high critical acclaim. He has also proved his acting skills by starring as a mentally challenged person in Nandalala.
He was working at Landmark when director Kathir first asked him to join him. He was with him for nearly 8 months but did not work on any movie. It was under Vincent Selva that he did his first movie, Youth followed by Jithan, again under Vincent Selva. Mysskin made his directorial debut with the low budget film Chithiram Pesuthadi which went to become one of the biggest hits of the year. A simple love story, it became a hit owing to the unique style the film was written in. Narain and Bhavana debuting as leads in the film became popular faces. He then moved on to Anjathe which became one of the biggest blockbusters in Tamil Cinema. The film received critical acclaim for all departments of filmmaking involved in the film. It starred Narain, Prasanna, Vijayalakshmi Ahathian and yesteryear actor Pandiarajan in a never before seen role. Interestingly both his films have item songs which have become big hits and has captured the hearts of the young and old alike.
Anjathe catapulted Mysskin into the big league. He is touted to be one of the best young directors in Tamil cinema. Two years after this, he came back with Nandalala a film completely different from first two ventures. A film on motherly love, the film dealt with a young boy and a mentally challenged person going in search of their respective mothers. He chose to play the mentally challenged character after the script was turned down by most stars in kollywood. The film went to become his most critically acclaimed film with some critics calling it one of the best Tamil films ever made while others gave it a thumbs down because of its similarity to Takeshi Kitano's Kikujiro. Nandalala won the people's choice award at the Norway Film Festival. His latest film, Yuddham Sei, a dark thriller was a huge hit at the box office as well. His visual style and directing prowess was appreciated and talked about by everybody. He has now started pre-production works on his magnum opus - Mugamoodi to be produced by UTV Motion Pictures. The film stars Jeeva as a superhero.
