      K. Balachander Biography

      Kailasam Balachander is an Indian producer, director and screenwriter for film. He has directed films in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Kannada and Malayalam,. He is known for his distinct filmmaking style the films he scripts and directs analyse unusual or complicated interpersonal relationships and social themes. In his career, he has contributed to the Tamil film industry in South India, and has introduced hundreds of actors, actresses into Tamil cinema including Kamal Hassan, Rajinikanth, Prakashraj and Vivek.

      Known amongst actors as a tough taskmaster, K. Balachander was able to extract from these actors some of their finest acting performances for his films. Prior to his involvement in Indian cinema, he worked as a school teacher in Muthupet, Tiruvarur District, and as a playwright.

      Balachandar has always been ahead of his time, be it films or a TV serial. Initially into theatre, he presented plays like Edhir Neechal, Navagraham etc. It was M. G. Ramachandran who had asked him to write dialogues for the film Deiva Thai.

      His notable films were Tamil productions such as Apoorva Raagangal (1975), which deals with a father-son relationship and inter-generational romance that culminates in a complex dilemma Avargal (1977), which follows the life of a divorcee as she traverses various relationships in reverse, i.e., from divorce, to marriage, to falling in love Varumayin Niram Sigappu (1980), a drama that charts the travails and struggles of being unemployed in a large and harsh city 47 Natkal (1981), which traces the adversities of a newly-wed Indian woman living with an abusive, expatriate husband in a Parisian suburb and Sindhu Bhairavi (1985), about the intellectual collision and subsequent romance between an eminent Carnatic musician and his ardent female critic, Ek Duuje Ke Liye (1981, Hindi), about cross-cultural romance in India, for which he received two Filmfare nominations - for direction and best story.

      His telugu films Maro Charithra and Rudraveena are seen as one of the best movies ever made in Telugu film Industry. He directed the story about a woman breadwinner taking care of her family in several languages, the Tamil film Aval Oru Thodar Kathai (1974), the Telugu film Anthuleni Katha (1976), and produced the Kannada film Benkiyalli Aralidha Hoovu (1980). In a recent interview to Maa TV Channel, the doyen of Telugu film industry Dadasaheb Phalke winner Akkineni Nageswara Rao (ANR), when asked if there was any unfulfilled wish - has expressed his desire and interest to act in a film directed by Shri K.Balachander! That salutes Balachander to the hilt!

      His more recent films include Parthale Paravasam (2001) and Poi (2006). To him goes the credit for discovering new talent in acting, direction, and other technical areas, many of whom have made a mark in their respective fields. Rajnikanth, a discovery of Balachandar and Kamal Hassan, whom he moulded into a great actor, prove this.

      His serials, Kai Alavu Manasu, Kadhal Pagadai, Premi, Jannal Anni and others have been successful. This medium helps to reach out to the public. Thats why I am into making serials, says Balachandar. He strongly feels that the three different medium of entertainment — theatre, cinema and television are bound to co-exist. One cannot destroy the other and at any given time the public will see what it wants.

      After nearly 40 years, and as a homage to his dear friend Nagesh, KB recently returned (and was Reborn as he himself claims) to theatre through the play Pournami. Starring Renuka and Poovilangu Mohan among others, the story is about a homemaker whose husband gets caught in Pakistan under the suspicion of being a terorist. The play, riddled with KBs signature humor, intelligent dialogues and political overtones, has been very well received and signals a clean return to the theatre for KB.

      K.B Sir...A legend, his movies keep lingering long in our minds. The story would be simple, sometimes may be a true story of our lives but the protoginosit, usually the women characters acted by top actress like Suhasini Madam, Revathi Medam and Saritha Madam is something a common woman would like to identify with. But the achievements and idealism of these women charters in Balachander's movies are above our normal life and gives us, especially the women to stand up for self actualization and idealism

      KB Sir, Your films can not be compared with films of anybody. Your films are always unique. All artists either new face or already acted person have acted differently in your films. You have used them in a different way. No one can forget your contribution to South Indian Cinema as well as Indian Cinema. You are a great inspiration for lot of people. Your cinema is motivating everybody in day today life. Your cinema shows how to overcome struggles in life. Thank you.

      Navamalar Alagasan, Malaysia on 28-12-2014

      It was a period, watching films for fun and excitement only. After KB's Films we started to understand what 'films' are and 'for' and why we have to watch them. I.e. Iru Kodugal, Kaviya thalavy Arangetram, Sinthu Bairavi...etc...His place must have been in Hollywood to tell them they can films with WAR and Violence. Hats off to KB Sir. You mean GENIUS!
