He directed Pulivaal in 2014, a thriller film starring Prasanna, and Vemal in the lead.  

Marimuthu’s latest release is this week’s Red Sandal Wood, in which he played the role of Kabali-fame Vishwanth’s father. The actor has also played a role in Indian 2, which is said to be his last film.

The final rites for the actor will reportedly take place in Madurai. He is survived by his wife, daughter and son.
