K. Rajeshwar, who made his debut in the direction field with 'Nyaya Tharasu,', found Kollywood’s best screenplay writer Kalaignar Karunanidhi to assist him, and it was no doubt a satisfying experience for him. Rajeshwar spent his childhood in Mumbai and came back to Chennai and got enrolled in Loyola College. Later, his passion for cinema drove him to Adyar Film Institute, and he wrote the scripts for numerous Tamil movies. It is said that his father too had his love for celluloid and thus he was inspired to make a film titled ‘ Amaran’ which was a blockbuster movie.

This Tamil movie was inspired from ‘ Godfather’. Rajeshwar is known for assisting writer Rudraiya to write the story and screenplay for a movie ' Aval Appadithan' (1978) which had Kamal Haasan, Rajinikanth, and Sripriya doing lead roles. The film received applause from Mrinal Sen even. On the sets of ‘Panneer Pushpangal’, he came across actor Pratap Pothen, and it is said that the actor was impressed with his writing. Pratap Pothen even promised to direct a film based on Rajeshwar’s script. That is how when Pratap made his debut as a director for movie ‘Meendum Oru Kaathal Kathai’, he chose Rajeshwar for the storyline.

He also had handled script writing for a Bollywood film ' Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani' which was directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. There is also a rumour that the director might make a sequel of Amaran.
