Muthaiah had learnt cinema from director Boopathy Pandian. The film Kutty Puli which had Sasikumar in the lead role was directed by Muthaiah.
This film raised lots of expectations because Sasikumar and Lakshmi Menon who had acted in Sundarapandian were pairing for the second time in Kutty Puli.
Red Giant Movies and Sun Pictures who felt that this film will not incur losses acquired the rights of this film. The result was satisfactory.
At this point of time, Muthaiah is ready to direct a new film which will have Gautham Karthik in the lead role. Gautham Karthik is currently acting in Sippai directed by Saravanan and Vai Raja Vai directed by Aishwarya Dhanush.
Apart from this he is also acting in a Tamil remake of a Telugu film. In Sippai, Gautham will be romancing with Lakshmi Menon and with Priya Anand in Vai Raja Vai. Muthaiah is now in search of a new heroine for Gautham.
