Cheran Biography

Cheran is a Tamil film director and actor, who has a reputation for directing and producing culturally strong films. His movies are characterised by their realism and the strong social messages that they convey. He has won the National Award thrice, one for Vetri Kodi Kattu (which won Best Film of 2000 dealing with social issues) and one for Most Entertaining Film in 2004 (for Autograph) and one for "Thavamai Thavamirundhu" (2005) grabbed the national award for best film on Family Welfare. It`s told that Actress Meena is a lucky mascot for him as this movie has fetched him several renowned awards and at the same time it was a run away box office hit.

Cheran was born on 12th December, 1964 in madurai district, Tamil Nadu. He belongs to devar community. His father was a cinema (machine) operator and his mother was a nursery school teacher. Cheran nurtured his acting skills by the stage dramas enacted in those days during local festival seasons. He went on grooming himself and his dreams by undergoing self-designed rehearsals by himself standing in front of the mirror, speaking out the film dialogues of Sivaji Ganesan, which he carried out with the accompanying acting gestures.

He was worn out after he ran away from home to Chennai with dreams of becoming an actor. As his endless chasings after people and cinema studios for getting cinema chances proved to be failures, his hopes were shattered. At last, putting an end to his day-dreaming of becoming a film actor, he succeeded in turning his attention towards the other sides of film-making. He learnt the art of film direction under the mentorship of director K.S. Ravikumar

Cheran began his career as an assistant to K.S. Ravikumar. The young man caught the attention of the film producer, Henry. Henry was the producer of the Malayalam film `Yavanika` directed by K.G. George. Consequent to the success of that movie,he made his entry into Tamil Cinema with `Kolangal`, a subject based on a girl rescued from the red light area in Mumbai who faces social problems back home in Chennai. Henry insisted that the film should not only be commercial but also have a strong social theme.

Today first time I saw your movie AUTOGRAPH. What a simple and fantastic movie it is. I would like to see all your movies right from your first movie. Please send me the names of all your movies. Hope you remember that we were seated next to each other in Thevar Mahal couple of months before at a book releasing function of Dr. N. Sethuraman. You are native of Melur and my father was working in Karungalakudi as Doctor way back in 1954. you must take a movie on all our youngsters going out of this country and as to how they should be retained in INDIA. This theme was outlined by me to you on that day.

Dear Chearan Sir, While others taking commercial movies you are standing uniquely. Among your films my latest favorite is JK Enum Nanbanin Kadhai. If schools engaged students to see this films as they did for Jurassic Park then the students thinking capacity will increase. C2H is an Innovative Creation.
