T.S.MUTHAIAH


T.S.Muthaiah and Prem Nazir
T.S.Muthaiah was a very popular Malayalam actor who usually played character and supporting roles.He was active in the Malayalam film field for more than four decades.Since he knew Tamil language also equally well, he could act in more than sixty Tamil films also in his acting career.
T.S.Muthaiah was born in Cochin to parents T.M.Sachith and  Gomathi Ammal
on January 23, 1923.He passed S.S.L.C and  selected acting as his profession.





T.S.Muthaiah as Sage Vasishta in the film 'Harichandra'
While studying at school itself he used to act on stages.His debut film was 'Navalokam' directed by V.Krishnan in 1951.Next year Prem Nazir entered Malayalam films with the film 'Marumakal' directed by S.K.Chari.In the film Marumakal, T.S.Muthaiah also acted and a firm friendship started with Prem Nazir which lasted up to Muthaiah's last breath.
In many films during 50's Muthaiah's role would be as a friend,companion, or associate to Prem Nazir's character.This association also increased their friendship bond.During his last period of life Muthaiah had financial problems and it was Prem Nazir that used to help him happily always.
Muthaiah was recipient of Best Actor awards and Best Supporting actor awards  
several times.
Muthaiah produced a film 'Chitramela' in 1967 which contained three different stories and direction was also handled by him.The film was not a success but earned good opinion from critics.During that period the concept of three stories in a film was not accepted by the audience.
In 1969 again he produced and directed another film 'Ballatha Pahayan' which also was not a success at the box office causing heavy loss to him.
