Udhaya Kulandaivelu

Tracy, CA, USA


Being a perfect cross-breed of the East and West and being a slavish student of the books and movies of both, Udhaya inherited the literary traditions of both India and the U.S. Udhaya’s experiences in two different cultures and the observations and insight therein inform his writing constantly. With an ever-percolating mind full of stories, and an uncanny knack for discerning human behavior and communication, he infuses his screenwriting with wicked humor, memorable dialogues, resonating characters, undying passion, palpable drama, and poignant themes. Favorite Films: Men with Guns, L.A. Confidential, Hero (Chinese), Great Escape, Quills, Before Sunrise, Papillon, Shawshank Redemption, Red Violin, English Patient, Ghost Dog
