Thambi Ramaiah is an Indian film actor and director, who works in the Tamil film industry. He directed the Vadivelu-starrer Indiralohathil Na Azhagappan; his performance in Mynaa, won a National Film Award for Best Supporting Actor. Ramaiah has also been working occasionally as a lyricist.
He actually came to cinema to write lyrics and compose music. Unexpectedly he became a director. He worked as an associate director to T. Rajender and P. Vasu. He directed Manu Needhi which had Murali in the lead role and also Vadivelu starrer Indralogathil Na Azhagappan which was a flop. Vadivelu is his best friend, Ramiah wrote all the comedy tracks for Vadivelu and also appeared in them. He made his debut doing a small role with Goundamani in the Sathyaraj starrer Malabar Police. Though he did character roles in Kodambakkam, Oram Po and Vetrivel Sakthivel, he did not get the expected. So he thought that acting is not suitable for him and he patiently waited. Myna has now changed his life. This film is a turning point.
