MS. Sathish hails from Chennai, Tamil Nadu. He was born on June 23rd. He is renowned for his works that he has done in the department of Direction of Photography. His wacky cinematography is wacky in almost all movies. Firstly Sathish was doomed under P.
Selva Kumar for a few films, and then he has also worked with

This was followed by Mappallai in the year 2011 which was a romantic action comedy film directed by Suraj, starring Dhanush and Hansika as star roles. After that movie, he thought that he should do something quite fascinating so, that he can grab the attention of the audience and the directors as well.
That made him experiment with a phone camera for a few shots in a movie called Meghamam. Those shots came good. That movie was released in the year 2014 under the direction of
Magizh Thirumeni pointing up Arya and Hansika in the lead roles. In the same year 2014 itself, he worked as a DOP in a Bollywood film too, subsequently for the film,

After that, he signed for a movie called Wagah in the year 2016 which is a Tamil action film written and directed by G. N. R Kumar Velam. This movie is extensively shot in Pahalgam, Jammu, and Kashmir. He had contributed a lot for this film to do well. Because, of his cinematography, that movie enhanced the subject of the film. And then this was followed by the film Kadamban in the year 2017. He always strives a lot for movie perfection. This movie was written and directed by Raghava under the banner of Super Good Films, starring Arya and Catherine in the leading roles.
Sarath Kumar is one of the DOPs who has been admired by many. His carefree attitude stood as his one of the advantages. Till date, he carries the same energy that he had in his first movie.
