Karthick Naren (born July 23, 1994) is a Tamil film director from Ooty, The Nilgiris District. He made his directorial debut with the 2016 Tamil thriller film Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru. His notable short films are Pradhi and Nirangal moondru.
Films like Kannathil Muthamittal and Prestige inspired him to take to direction, and in college, he directed his first short film ( Pralayam) and Vizhiyin Suvadugal.
He quit his engineering degree to concentrate on filmmaking. “The Internet was my tutor; it made me understand and experiment. I watched many films to gain knowledge on direction techniques”, says Karthick. In 2014, his third film, Nirangal Moondru, won a couple of awards and after releasing Pradhi online and receiving good feedback, he knew he was on course.
Karthick then moved from Coimbatore to Chennai to seek opportunities. “Though I had confident in my work and script, I was hesitant to approach people because they’d bring up the age factor. Thanks to encouragement from my parents and team, I approached Actor Rahman sir to play the lead in a film I had in mind; he plays a middle-aged cop in it,” he says about his debut venture that will hit screens next year.
He is also known as Karthik Naren.
