Photon Kathaas is an Indian film production company led by director Gautham Menon. It was established in 2010 by Menon along with Venky Somasundaram and Reshma Ghatala, who since work as the co-promoters.[1] Its name is derived from Gautham Menon's original company Photon Factory,[2] which had previously co-produced several of Menon's films like Vettaiyadu Vilayadu and Kaakha Kaakha, its Telugu remake Gharshana and Pachaikili Muthucharam.

Photon Kathaas's first venture has been Menon's psychological thriller Nadunisi Naaygal, co-produced with R. S. Infotainment.[2] The production house is currently involved in the making of films such as Veppam, Suseenthiran's Azhagarsamiyin Kudhirai and Ram's second directorial Thanga Meengal.[3] Furthermore, an audio label named Photon Kathaas Music was launched as a division of the company, with newcomer Vijay Ebenezer's Kanden becoming their first release.[4]
