He completed his bachelor's degree in computer engineering at the College of Engineering, Guindy in 2001. He further completed postgraduate studies and PhD in information technology at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia in 2008. His thesis is titled "Design considerations for query dissemination in wireless sensor networks" under Prof Shazia Sadiq.


Madhan Karky became a lyricist for the 2010 science-fiction film Enthiran, penning the song "Irumbile Oru Irudhaiyam". For the same film, he assisted director S. Shankar in writing the film's dialogues, especially assisting with technical terminology. However Kanden Kadhalai (2009), in which he had written the song "Ododi Poren", became his first release. For his work in Enthiran, he was awarded the Vijay Award for Best Find of the Year. He later went on to work as lyricist in the 2011 films, Engeyum Kaadhal, Ko and 180. The song "Enamo Aedho", a song from the Ko's soundtrack, also became popular for its lyrics. His other works include high budget films including, A. R. Murugadoss's 7aam Arivu in which he has also penned a song in Chinese language among the soundtrack and S. Shankar's Nanban. Madhan has written songs in Portuguese for 180 and in Mandarin for 7aam Arivu. For Nanban, for which he also worked on the dialogue, he had written lyrics in 15 different languages for a duet song. He went on to pen three songs for the next highly anticipated Mani Ratnam film Kadal.

After Shankar's films, he has written the dialogues for S. S. Rajamouli's Baahubali (Tamil version) and Venkat Prabhu's film Masss starring Suriya.

Karky also created a new language called Kiliki for Kalakeya tribes in the movie Baahubali.


Apart from penning songs and working in college, Karky has once told in an interview that photography is his passion since childhood and he has a huge collection of pictures he had clicked since his young age. Photography, cooking, coding (like Java, etc.). He has done a lot of research not only on lyrics but also on other topics in Tamil and publishing papers. "There are a lot of things in hand so that keeps me on the move!"
