About
Prabhu Solomon is an Indian film director, screenwriter, and producer who primarily works in the Tamil film industry. Although he made his directorial debut in 1999, he only shot to prominence around 11 years later, with the award-winning blockbuster hit Mynaa.

Early Life
Prabhu was born on 7 May 1969 and raised in Neyveli, Tamil Nadu. He says that he was interested in films ever since he was a young boy, often visiting the town`s only cinema hall. He studied at St. Paul`s Matriculation Higher Secondary School and then began pursuing his master`s degree in English literature. On completing his graduation, Prabhu moved to Chennai and began working on miscellaneous roles in Tamil films.

Movie Career
Prabhu`s first film role was that of actor R. Sarathkumar`s stunt double in Namma Annachi (1994). He was then roped in by director Sundar C on the film Murai Maman (1995), where Prabhu served as an assistant director. He made his directorial debut in 1999 when he replaced Sundar C on the Tamil romantic thriller Kannodu Kanbanthellam, which starred Arjun, along with Sonali Bendre and Suchindra. The director then ventured into Kannada cinema, with the film Usire (2001), which didn`t do very well commercially, which prompted him to return to Tamil cinema. Over the next few years, Prabhu directed movies like King (2002), Kokki (2006), Lee (2007), and Laadam (2009).

However, his big break came with the 2010 film Mynaa. The romantic drama, starring Vidharth and Amala Paul, was overwhelmingly well-received by fans and critics alike. Mynaa won the Filmfare Award for Best Film- Tamil, and Prabhu Solomon won the Vijay Award for Best Story, Screenplay Writer. After producing the 2012 film Saattai, Prabhu directed the super-hit films Kumki (2012) and Kayal (2014). In the year 2016, he directed, wrote, and co-produced the romantic thriller Thodari, with Dhanush and Keerthy Suresh cast in the lead roles. In 2017, he produced the Tamil movie Rubaai. His 2021 project includes Haathi Mere Saathi.
