Mohan Raja (born 30 May 1974) is an Indian film director, who has primarily worked in the Tamil film industry. As of 2015, he has directed eight films, all but one being remakes. After making his debut with the Telugu film Hanuman Junction (2001), he went on to remake several successful Telugu films into Tamil, beginning with Jayam (2003), which also launched his brother, Ravi, as a leading actor. Raja then collaborated with Ravi for three consecutive commercially successful films, M. Kumaran son of Mahalakshmi (2004), Something Something... Unakkum Enakkum (2006) and Santosh Subramaniam (2008), all of which were remakes of Telugu films. After a period of mixed success, he returned with his first original script, Thani Oruvan (2015), which went on to become amongst the most profitable Tamil films of 2015.
