Director

Kothamangalam Subbu directed four films in his career. But as SS Vasan’s trusted aide, he worked for over 20 films as an assistant director, including Chandralekha, a classic which changed the course of Indian films, Dasi Aparanji, and Bhaktha Sedha. Subbu fondly refers to SS Vasan as his inspiration for directing films. SS Vasan, on the other hand, is said to have entrusted Subbu with the role of directing Avvaiyar, owing to the former’s love for the language, and the saint-poet.
