H. Vinoth is an Indian film writer and director who made his directorial debut with Sathuranga Vettai (2014).[1] Vinoth's debut was produced by actor, director Manobala and was distributed by Thirupathi Brothers Film Media.[2]

Film career[edit]

He worked as assistant director to Vijay Milton .

Sathuranga Vettai, his first movie in 2014, was very well received by audience. The film was said to be a "con film". Vinoth stated, "My film is about the pace at which we all want to make money in our lives. It's about the anger of common man who thinks money is the solution to all his problems. When there's imbalance in nature, we experience tsunami and earthquake. Likewise, my story is about the imbalance in the social morals of a common man".[3] Although it was a heist film, the director said that he had made the film "as funny as possible" and that it had been narrated with "a lot of fun, satire and dark humour". It was reported that the film's screenplay was written in "a six-episode format".

In August 2016, the producer Manobala came forward and decided to produce the sequel of Sathuranga Vettai by himself, bringing in Arvind Swamy and Trisha to play the lead roles. Vinoth parted with his script, so Nirmal Kumar, who had previously made Salim (2014), was signed on as director.[4][5] The film subsequently began production in mid-October 2016.

In early 2016, Vinoth narrated a script to Karthi, who was very impressed and agreed to team up with Vinoth after his current commitments Kaashmora and Kaatru Veliyidai.[6][7] The movie is titled as Dheeran Adhigaram Ondru and is to be produced by S. R. Prakashbabu and S.R. Prabhu of Dream Warrior Pictures.[8]
