V. Sekhar is an Indian film director and writer who works primarily in Tamil cinema.[1]


He was primarily active in the 90s and early 2000s. Sekhar has made immense contribution to the popularity of family drama films and TV shows. He always puts a personal touch in his films which are loved by the viewers, especially the middle-class audiences. V Sekhar usually uses mediocre backdrops in his movies, and mostly portrays middle-class households through his films. He has strictly maintained that his screenplay doesn't change from the very first draft. In his interviews, he has confessed that for him, the story is the backbone of the movie.

He doesn't usually give up until the actors get all the expressions right and portray the character they're assigned as he wants them too. Usually, his films have a chunk of comic relief, the right amount of emotions, and the screenplay has a social message woven into it. His movies are known to have the right amount of sentiment intertwined with the perfect amount of comedy. He has also worked with known comedian actors such as Goundamani, Senthil, Vivek and Vadivelu.[2]

He began work on his latest venture in directing Saravana Poigai, starring his son Karl Marx in the lead role but the film remains unreleased.[3] He was arrested on 12 August 2015, by the Idol Wing, Economic Offences Wing for suspected role in an idol smuggling racket.[4][5]

Style of work[edit]

Sekar has directed mainly family-themed drama films, and has been likened to Visu who does the same.[6] He often produced his own films through the studio Thiruvalluvar Kalaikoodam alongside his business partner K. Parthiban.[7]
