Subha (Tamil: சுபா) is the name used by the writing partnership of D. Suresh and A.N. Balakrishnan, who write stories, detective novels and screenplays in Tamil .[1][2]

Work[edit]

The duo began co-authoring stories when they were in college together,[3] and have been publishing their work since 1979. They have published more than 450 short novels and more than 400 short stories. Most of their detective novels feature the characters Narendran and Vaijayanthi of Eagle Eye Detective Agency and their coworker John Sundar.

They have also written screenplays and dialogues for Tamil films and television serials. The movies Kana Kandaen and Ayan were based on their published novels and were scripted by Subha together with director K. V. Anand.[4][5] They co-authored the script for Ko, a political thriller movie, and Maatraan, a family thriller with K.V. Anand. The script for 180, a bilingual movie in Tamil and Telugu, was co-authored by Subha with director Jayendra. I (dialogues), Anegan, Yatchan, Thani oruvan were co-authored by Subha.

Suresh and Balakrishnan run their own publishing company, Thanga Thaamarai Publications, which, in addition to their novels, brings out some non-fiction titles.

Personal life[edit]

After college, Suresh and Balakrishnan both worked in banks, which they eventually quit in order to become full-time writers.[4] They live with their families in adjacent apartments in Chennai.
