Director Deekay impressed fans in his debut Yaamirukka Bayamey in 2014, with the horror comedy turning out to be a success both commercially and on the critical front. The film starring Krishna, Rupa Manjari and Oviya as the lead trio, with Karunakaran and Anaswara Kumar in pivotal roles, turned out to be a laugh out riot in theatres. Post the success of Yaamirukka Bayamey, Deekay teamed up with Jiiva and Kajal Aggarwal for the rom-com Kavalai Vendam, which despite not performing as expected at the box office, did land him appreciation for the visuals and the making. Deekay has since made the comedy horror film, Kaatteri, which includes a multi-star cast featuring names like Vaibhav, Varalakshmi Sarathkumar,  Sonam Bajwa, Aathmika, Ponnambalam, Ravi Mariya, Karunakaran, John Vijay, Mime Gopi, Kutty Gopi, Manali Rathod, Jangiri Madhumitha among others and is awaiting its release as it was delayed due to the pandemic. 

With Kaateri yet to release, Deekay's next, his fourth directorial has been revealed to be titled Karungaapiyam, and once again includes a talented young cast featuring several notable names starting with leading actresses Kajal Aggarwal, Regina Cassandra, Janani and Indian-Iranian Noyrika Bhatheja, who are being joined by comedy superstar Yogi Babu.
