Magizh Thirumeni was born in India. He is professionally a film director and has made many Tamil movies. As an assistant director, he worked for various films in Tamil Nadu; he worked under Gautham Menon, ‘ Selvaraghavan’, etc. During his childhood, Magizh used to read Tamil literature and was fond of Russian works too; he used to write poems, stories and liked to write even more often. After he had become satisfied with himself, he started to attempt writing for novels and prepared scripts for dramas and theaters.

During his struggling days, Magizh used to visit T. Rajendra and P. Vasu with the hope that they would include him in their team. Magizh’s initial works in which he associated with other filmmakers include Thulluvado Illimani, ‘Kaakha’, Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu, etc. People appreciated his work and his efforts. He made his debut in 2010 with the flick, “ Mundhinam Paartheney”. It focuses on the protagonist, Sanjay, who is talking about falling in love and the type of girl he would get married to.

Then, it takes the audience to the past where Sanjay falls in love with Pooja but realizes that she is getting married to an NRI within a month, and his hopes shatter. Again, he meets Aarthi, who is a stylish person but loves the Orthodox practices, and her attitude relates to a modern era. Their relationship goes in vain when misunderstandings occur. Then he meets Anu, who is his college batchmate, and he tries to fall in love with her too, but fate has its way of getting things down. The flick could not create any magic at the box office and failed to entertain them. But it displayed the correct notion of today’s generation, about people who face difficulty in finding the right person.

After the first picture had gone bad, Magizh directed Thadaiyara Thaaka which released in 2012. The plot is about Selva, who owns a travel company in Chennai and dreams of taking it to the clouds, and his girlfriend is all set to marry him whenever he is ready. Selva comes across Maha and Kumar, who are local goons and take bribes from people for no reason. Selva encounters Maha and he is later found dead under mysterious circumstances.

People think Selva killed him, and Kumar starts to search for him. Terrified, Selva takes cover to hide from them but realizes that he is not scared of them, and instead he comes out with camouflage to fight Kumar and his men. Magizh other works include ‘ Meaghamann’, which hit the theaters in 2014.
