After a successful 43-year career as a screenwriter, SN Swamy is ready to make his directorial debut at the age of 72. He has authored the scripts for various Malayalam hits throughout the span of his four-decade career, including ‘Oru CBI Diary Kurippu’ and ‘Irupatham Noottandu.’

Over time, he has built strong relationships with renowned filmmakers like K Madhu and Joshiy. Among Swami’s various literary works, ‘Sethurama Iyer CBI’ is still a well-known figure in Malayalam movies. The character has become quite well known, and its influence on what happens at work is evident.
