Early life

K. Balachander was born on 9 July 1930 in a Tamil
Brahmin family to Saraswati and Dhandapani at
Nannilam in the then Tanjore district
(now Tiruvarur District), India. He completed his
B. Sc., (Zoology) in 1949 at Annamalai University.
While working in the Accountant General’s Office
as a Superintendent in the 1960s, he came to
prominence as an amateur playwright with his dynamic
plays like Major Chandrakanth, Server Sundaram,
Neerkumizhi, Mezhuguvarthi, Naanal and Navagraham.
The plays, which were produced and directed by him,
were an instant success and enjoyed both popular and
critical acclaim. His films always carried a message
for the society, with his personal directorial touch.

Career

K. Balachander is known among actors as a tough
taskmaster, K. Balachander was able to extract from
these actors some of their finest acting performances
for his films. He was capable to infuse from these
actors some of their finest acting performances for
his films. Anterior to his intimacy in Indian cinema,
he worked as a school teacher in Muthupet, Tiruvarur
District, and as a playwright.
It was M. G. Ramachandran who had asked him to write
dialogues for the film Dheiva Thaai. His famed films
were Tamil productions such as Apoorva Raagangal
(1975), which deals with a father-son relationship
and inter-generational romance that culminates in
a complex quandary. Avargal (1977), which follows the
life of a divorcee as she traverses various
relationships in reverse, from divorce, to marriage,
to falling in love. Varumayin Niram Sigappu (1980),
a drama that charts the travails and conflict of being
unemployed in a bombastic and harsh city.
47 Natkal (1981), which traces the adversities of a
newly-wed Indian woman living with an scurrilous,
expatriate husband in a Parisian suburb; and
Sindhu Bhairavi (1985), about the intellectual
collision and subsequent romance between an lofty
Carnatic musician and his ardent female critic.
Ek Duuje Ke Liye (1981, Hindi), about cross-cultural
romance in India, for which he received two Filmfare
nominations - for direction and best story.[8][9]
His Telugu films Maro Charithra and Rudraveena are
notably among the best movies ever made in Telugu
film Industry. He directed the story about a woman
breadwinner taking care of her family in several
languages, the Tamil film Aval Oru Thodar Kathai
(1974), the Telugu film Anthuleni Katha (1976),
and produced the Kannada film Benkiyalli Aralida
Hoovu (1983).
His later films include Parthale Paravasam (2001)
and Poi (2006).[11] To him goes the credit for
discovering new talent in acting, direction, and
other technical areas, many of whom have made a
mark in their respective fields. Rajnikanth, a
discovery of Balachandar and Kamal Hassan, whom
he moulded into a great actor, prove this.
His serials, Kai Alavu Manasu, Rayil Sneham,
Kadhal Pagadai, Premi, Jannal Anni and others
have been successful. "This medium helps to reach
out to the public. That's why I am into making
serials," says Balachandar. He strongly feels
that the three different medium of entertainment
— theatre, cinema and television are bound to
co-exist. One cannot destroy the other and at any
given time the public will see what it wants.
After nearly 40 years, and as a homage to his dear
friend Nagesh, KB recently returned (and was
"Reborn" as he himself claims) to theatre through
the play Pournami, Starring Renuka and Poovilangu
Mohan among others, the story is about a homemaker
whose husband gets caught in Pakistan under
the suspicion of being a terorist.

Personal life

Balachander is married to Rajam. The couple has
3 children, two sons - Kailasam, Prasanna and one
daughter Pushpa Kandaswamy, Chief Executive Officer,
Kavithalaya Productions.
