Early life and career

Sameer Thahir wwwindiancinemagallerycomimagesnewsSameerTha

Sameer C Thahir studied in the creative atmosphere of Maharajas College Eranakulam, and the friendships formed based on creative pursuits during that period is still the driving factor for him in film making. Sameer's mentor Amal Neerad for whom he handled cinematography in "Big B", charismatic director Anwar Rasheed, Ashiq abu for whom Sameer moved the camera in Daddy cool, and nationally acclaimed cinematographer Rajeev Ravi for whom Sameer has assisted in films were just some of them from Maharajas friendship circle.

Sameer Thahir evolved from his passion for photography to wedding films to ad films to feature films through a period of time. He says the inspiration for making his own first film Chappakurish as he wanted to make a film which he would like to see that portrays the contrasts of real life. But the film went on to receive sheer criticism for being a mere copy of a Korean film, titled 'Hand Phone'.

Sameer's second film 'Neelaakaasam Pachakkadal Chuvanna Bhoomi' received generally favorable reviews.

Personal life

Sameer married his "teacher-girl friend" Neethu on 12 November 2013.
