Tamil film director Thamira dies due to Covid-19

Tamil filmmaker Thamira died on Monday in a private hospital in Chennai due to complications related to Kovid-19. The news has given a shock to the entire Tamil film industry, which is recovering from the untimely death of comedy icon Vivek.

Thamira assisted veteran filmmakers like K Balachander and Bharathiraja before venturing out on their own. His first film as a director was Rettisuzhi, which featured some of the biggest names in Tamil cinema. While director Shankar controlled it, Thamira’s mentors in the film were Balachander and Bharathiraja. The film, which came out in 2010, did not receive rave reviews from critics and made a splash at the box office.

Thamira’s second film was titled Aan Devathai, which is Tamil for Male Angel. The 2018 film featured Samuthirakani, Ramya Pandian, Kavin and Monika in the lead roles. Again it received mixed reviews from critics and failed to make its mark at the box office.

Thamira has also helped a web series called My Perfect Husband. With veteran actors Satyaraj and Sita in lead roles, the series is set to release on Disney Plus Hotstar.
