Mahendran made an immediate impact with his first film Mullum Malarum (1978). His next film Udhiri Pookal (1979) was based on a short story written by Pudumaipithan and firmly established him as an important film maker. His work stands apart stylistically, with a penchant for realism and sincerity of approach. Director Mani Ratnam once famously remarked: "If I get anywhere near what Mahendran did in Udhiri Pookkal, I’ll be a happy man." He is regarded highly by contemporary Tamil Cinema directors. Mahendran has high regards for his cousin brother Eddy, who was a state football player and athlete at Alagappa Arts college, Karaikudi is 2 years his senior.
Mr.Director Mahendren has written a book on our beloved leader M.G.R “Makkal Thilagam Cinemavil Ennai Vithaithaver”,his experiences with M.G.R. An interesting book all M.G.R Fans Should read this book.
