Shakti Soundar Rajan was born on 1st January 1981 in Chennai. Being passionate in Cinema, he had been longing for the right opportunity. When the opportunity came by his way, Shakti caught it tightly. He made his debut direction in 2010 with “Nanayam.” “Prasanna,” “S P Balasubramanyam,” Sibi Raj and Ragini played important roles in the film.  The film which has a unique script was new to the Tamil film industry. After the hit film, Shakti was not seen in the film industry for four years. He came with yet another brand new script to Kollywood, Naaigal Jaakiradhai. As he had already worked with Sibi Raj in his debut film, he has a good bonding with the actor. The thriller story which was based on a military trained dog got appreciation from all the centres. Naaigal Jaakiradhai, which was the adaptation of Hollywood film Turner & Hooch was dubbed as Police Aur Tiger in Hindi.  It garnered appreciations for Shakti’s scripting skill. After a couple of years of the release of Naaigal Jaakiradhai, Shakti came with a new concept to Indian cinema. It is “Miruthan” with Jayam Ravi and Lakshmi Menon in the lead. Zombie movies are popular in Hollywood and some other western nations. For the first time, Shakti scripted it in Tamil. The film was screened at the Film Festival held in Mexico. Following the success of Miruthan, he is working in Tik Tik Tik with Jayam Ravi. The film would release in 2017. It is a space thriller film and like his previous films, it is also the first of this genre in India. Another version of the Bio... Director and Screenwriter, Shakti Soundar Rajan is a well-known name in Tamil Cinema. His work has been influential and has been appreciated in that part of the industry. Humble beginnings go a long way in making an ordinary person transform into a great one. Shakti began working in 2010. His debut movie was Naanayam which released in 2010 which boasted of Prasanna, Ragini, and Sibiraj as the star cast that backed the movie. After four years in 2014, he came with another movie titled Naaigal Jaakirathai, Sibiraj, Arundathi, and Balaji Venugopal were also a part of this direction which received stellar reviews from both the critics as well as the audience. After this movie, Shakti achieved a certain stance in the industry. One may make a hundred mediocre movies and go unrecognized; one may give their all effort in ONE movie and be recognized for a hundred years. Coming next was a movie which belonged to the genre of Zombie thriller. Miruthan consisted of Jayam Ravi and Lakshmi Menon. This genre is a lesser explored arena in Hindi Cinema as well as Tamil industry. Released in 2016, Miruthan was the first ever time, this genre was exploited in the industry and hence would be a remembered film for setting a benchmark for all those who want to indulge in experimental cinema. With three films in his filmography and having just begun in 2010, Director Shakti Rajan is visibly upping his game and trying to get better with each project. Not many have the will to experiment at such an early stage of career; that’s what differentiates him from the other contemporaries.
