Rajakumaran, an assistant to director Vikraman, made his debut with Nee Varuvai Ena, a romance story produced by R. B. Choudary. The film featuring Parthiban and Devayani in the lead roles won positive reviews and commercial success, being described as "a film definitely worth watching" by a critic from, who cites that "it is bound to touch your heart and make you wonder about the power of love". A reviewer from the Indian Express wrote "The plot is almost always predictable, and at times, even degenerates into blatant stupidity. But the director presents all this with such a straight face, that you find yourself lapping it all up". The film went on to win the Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Storywriter for Rajakumaran. He then briefly began and shelved a film titled Aanavam which was to feature Sathyaraj, Kushboo and Roja. After the success of his first film, Rajakumaran was given another chance by R. B. Choudary to make a film under his banner. The project was titled as Vinnukkum Mannukkum with an ensemble cast featuring Vikram, Devayani, Sarathkumar and Kushboo. During the making of the film, Vikram mentioned his displeasure at being a part of the film, claiming that he had arguments with the director for every single shot and that "everything in that film, right from the first shot was wrong. Furthermore, Rajakumaran failed to utilize the call sheets of Sarathkumar and this caused some delay in finishing off the shootings, taking over a year to complete. The film received mixed reviews and became a box office failure, with a critic from The Hindu noting "director Rajakumaran has taken special care in the choice of songs and locations to make the film entertaining. He should have paid more attention to the first half and more important, must have extracted more work from Vikram, who has the potential, and Devayani, for whom it is a cakewalk".

He next chose to direct and produce a film titled Kadhaludan (2003) with Murali in the lead role. The film won mixed reviews with a critic from Sify noting "the plot is idiotic, as director Rajakumaran has tried to rehash his earlier film Nee Varuvai Ena" and described the film as tedious. Another review from The Hindu described the film as a neat family drama, adding that : "The screenplay is hampered mainly by lengthy, meandering dialogue that proves tiresome". The failure of the films, prompted Rajakumaran to take a sabbatical from film making and briefly worked as a film distributor. Along with his wife, they then launch another production Thirumathi Thamizh in February 2008, with Rajakumaran playing the lead role and Devayani starring opposite him. The film, after much delay, released to negative reviews in April 2013.
