Gokula Krishnan was an Indian film director, who has directed Tamil films. He was primarily active in the 1980s and early 1990s and is most noted for his work on films featuring actor Karthik. He also extensively worked with Malayalam director Fazil and other Malayalam directors, when they made Tamil films, helping write dialogues.[1]


Gokula Krishnan made his directorial debut in the early 1980s, before choosing to prioritise his work as a script-writer to Malayalam director Fazil, when he made Tamil films. In the mid 1990s, Gokula Krishnan made three consecutive films with actor Karthik. Muthu Kaalai (1995), Poovarasan (1996) and Udhavikku Varalaamaa (1998) all fared poorly at the box office.[2]

He died after a brief illness on 28 October 2008, leaving behind his wife, Kavitha.[3]
