Full Biography of Director Samuthirakani

P. Samuthirakani is a Tamil film actor and director. He worked as an assistant to director K. Balachander.His 2009 directorial Naadodigal was a runaway hit, which was later remade in three languages. He has acted in several films as well and is best known for his performances in Subramaniapuram, Easan , both directed by M. Sasikumar and Saattai.


Samuthirakani entered cinema with dreams of making it as an actor. “People said I don\'t have the looks or the physique for it. I was unfazed. ‘Insults are a part of life,\' I told myself and persevered. So when did he finally get a chance to don the greasepaint? “Pandiarajan\'s Padikkira Vayasu in which I had just a line to say! And to squeeze myself into the scene I had to cringe and crawl before the assistant director!” Not a tinge of self-pity! “Why at all? Slights can\'t hold me back.”


In 1997, he joined as an assistant director under K.Vijayan. Samuthirakani who always used to keep himself busy with work was noticed by Iyakkunar Sigaram K.Balachander and was roped in as assistant director for his 100th movie\'s Parthaale Paravasam. He also got the chance to work as Balachander’s assistant in mega serial Anni telecasted by Jaya TV. The director recalls that the work experience he gained under his mentor Balachander helped him in many ways while shooting Arasi and Selvi, the mega serial telecasted in Sun TV, which were massive hits among house wives.


And that\'s when he started writing out scenes and dialogue which he would enact within the confines of his room. Soon it led to the discovery that inside him was a capable storyteller.


Subramaniapuram showcased Samuthirakani as an actor with potential and Nadodigal helped him prove his mettle as a director. From maker of megas to director of films that began with Unnai Charan Adaindhain, Kani has always been busy, primarily because he\'s absolutely egoless. The lukewarm response to his debut film and the disaster ero — didn\'t deter him. “If the film is a hit everyone vies for the laurels. And if the result is negative, it\'s the director who has to bear the onus,” he shrugs. He went back to television, joined his mentor K. Balachander\'s unit, worked as an assistant of Ameer for Paruthiveeran and kept himself as busy as ever. “I continued working till better things came my way.” And the best did happen — Sasikumar gave him that solid role in Subramaniapuram, followed it up with another in Easan, played hero under Sasikumar\'s direction, and is back with him for Porali.
