Although he was born in Kerala, he grew up in Tiruchirappalli, Tamil Nadu. He graduated from his bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Mookambigai College of Engineering, Pudukkottai.


First Work, 2001
Menon was a student of mechanical engineering at Mookambigai Engineering College in the 1993 lot and his time inspired his main characters of Minnale, Vaaranam Aayiram and Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, students of the same course. He claims to have been inspired by films such as Dead Poets Society and Nayagan and expressed his desire to his parents to change careers and become a filmmaker and consequently wrote his first film in his university hostel. His mother insisted that he become a public filmmaker by shooting various advertisements and learning under the film Rajiv Menon. He continued his post of deputy director for Minsara Kanavu in 1997, in which he also appeared in a cameo role.

Menon launched a romance film Tamil O Lala in 2000 with the project that eventually changed producer and title to Minnale (2001) with Madhavan, who was at the beginning of his career, was signed to represent the lead role. Regarding making the film, Menon revealed that he was striving to find that the team was new to the industry with only the editor of the film, Suresh Urs, being a leading technician in the film, industry. Menon had been subjected to new pressures when Madhavan had insisted that Menon tell the story to his mentor, Mani Ratnam, in order to identify whether the film was a positive career move after the success of his Alaipayuthey. Despite initial reservations, Menon did and Ratnam was not impressed; However, Menon cited that he thought Madhavan "was sorry" and then agreed to continue the project. The film also featured Abbas and the new Reemma Sen in important roles, while Menon introduced Harris Jayaraj as a music composer with the film. The film was announced as a Valentine's Day outing in 2001 and told the story of a young man who falls in love with the girl hired for her former college and how he manages to get married to her. When it was released, it became commercially successful and won positive reviews from critics with allegations that the film had a lot of "a lot of vigor and vigor" and that it was "technically excellent."

The success of the film led producer Vashu Bhagnani to sign him to direct the Hindi remake of the film, Rehnaa Hai Earth Dil Mein (2001), who also presented Menon in a small role; having Madhavan with Dia Mirza and Saif Ali Khan added to the film. Menon was initially concerned, but said it took "half an hour" to accept and against his intentions, the producer chose to retain the crew of the original. He changed some elements, deleted some scenes and added a little more for the version. However, in comparison, the film recorded bad reviews with a critic by citing that "presentation does not abstain" by claiming that it "processed certain sequences with aplomb"; Subsequently, the film became an average price lower than the average box office. The failure of the film left him disappointed, with Menon asserting retrospectively that the film did not have the simplicity of the original with the intervention of the producer affecting the procedures. Later in the year, it was reported that he was working on a film entitled Iru Vizhi Unadhu, on a provisional basis, although the project did not become productive. In 2011, the producer of the film approached him to remake Rehnaa Hai Earth Dil Mein with the son of the producer Jackky Bhagnani in the lead, but Menon was disinterested by the offer.
