== Film career

Rajender burst upon the scene with phenomenal success in his early films on subjects such as romance and rhymes which appealed to youngsters. However, with the passage of time, the quality of his films began to deteriorate. He is known for his his unique style of acting which includes numerous rhyming dialogues, his unconventional dialogue delivery and his signature long hair (which he always pushes back) and thick beard (he has never shaved in his life).

He can do all roles in Film except Heroine role, only because he has shave his beard off. One of his popular rhymes include him saying to a villain "Vaada en machi... Vaazhaika Bhajji... Un udamba pichi... Potuduven Bhajji" which means "Come on dude... You banana Bhajji... I will tear your body... and make Bhajjis out of it!". Another of his well known dialogues is "Dandanakka Dadunkanakka" which has even been adopted by his son in a song in his 2008 film Kaalai.

In recent times,some people have criticized his style of acting,choice of apparel, gestures and dance movements.He has seen a series of flops, including his latest movie Veerasamy. He has also been widely criticized for his outspoken remarks on prominent political and media personalities and for his efforts to promote his son Simbhu.

Many of the T.R's movies were centered upon thangachi or sisterly sentiments. His wife Usha Rajendar also worked with him for various roles including film co-producer, guest entertainer, model and costume designer.
