Balakumaran was born in Pazhamarneri village near Thirukattupalli in Thanjavur district on 5 July He is married to Kamala and Santha. They have daughter Gowri and son Venkataraman aka surya. Balakumaran died at the age of 71 due to prolonged illness in a private hospital on 15 May This created a deep interest in Tamil literature which made literature his passion. Despite having a poor relationship with his father due to average academic performance especially Maths, he continued his deep interest in literature under his mother support.
Balakumaran's works majorly revolved around woman with great empathy. In his stories, women were not merely gendered cardboard cutouts but fully sentient individuals, with bodies, dreams, desires, yearnings and frustrations.
In an interview, he said that during his initial days in Chennai he spent his life amidst such people. This prompted him to develop a liking towards them.
For instance, In 'Udayar' novel, he had traveled many places where Raja Raja cholan visited in order to bring closeness towards the novel. I went to the Thanjavur district and visited Pallipadai, dedicated to Panchavan Madevi.
She was an anukkiyar, a category that is apart from the queens and concubines. She was a friend of Raja Raja Chola I. If you look at the paintings there, each face is unique. Whoever did it, has worked on it with real faces. I did a lot of research for my novel Gangaikonda Chozhan also. But I felt I did that work, visiting those places as a tourist.
Udaiyar, a six-part novel, gave me satisfaction as a writer. It's a great reference to the culture gradiant between different kingdoms during udayar period. Balakumaran's contribution to films was largely in the field of screenplay making and dialogue writing.
His skills in crafting the dialogue for any conceivable character are noteworthy in Kollywood and his dialogues in Nayakan and Baasha are still popular and widely used. Surprisingly, he believed movies ware just a means to lift him from the lower middle-class to the upper middle-class.
Some of Balakumaran novel names has been used in Tamil cinema as Movie titles - Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara , Irumbu Kuthirai which are samples of Balakumaran's popularity.
