Early life

Jiiva was born on 4 January 1984 in Chennai to R. B. Choudary and Mahjabeen. He is the youngest of four; his brothers are Suresh Choudary (co-producer in their home banner, Super Good Films), Jeevan Choudary (entrepreneur of a steel company), and Jithan Ramesh Choudary (film actor and producer). R. B. Choudary is a noted independent south Indian film producer (Super Good Films) who has been a launchpad for now-famous directors and actors.


2003–2008: Debut and journey ahead

Jiiva made his debut in his father's 50th production (Super Good Films), Aasai Aasaiyai, directed by Ravi Mariya in 2003. The film performed averagely at the box office, but critics felt that Jiiva left an impression.

His second film Thithikudhe (the Tamil remake of Uday Kiran's Telugu movie Manasantha Nuvve) was also produced by Super Good Films. The film opened to mixed reviews but the actor gained appreciation for his good looks and expressive emotions. It was his third movie, Ameer's crime thriller, Raam (2005) that was called a 'dream break' for his calling in the film industry. The racy screenplay and his role of an eccentric 17-year-old gained positive feedback from audience and critics. The movie was screened at the International Film Festival in Goa and later at the Cyprus International Film Festival, where he won the Best Actor award.

Jiiva next starred in Dishyum (2006), opposite Sandhya of Kaadhal fame. "A feel-good movie for youngsters", reviewed various local publications. "Jeeva continues from this point and has matured as an actor. His acting is impeccable and natural; his emoting, expressions, emotions expressed by looks, body-language – all are perfect," remarked Galatta.[1]

The same year, he made his debut as an NSG Commando in Malayalam cinema with Major Ravi's film Keerthi Chakra (2006) starring Mohanlal. The movie had a great opening and was one of the highest-grossing Malayalam films of the year. Jiiva also won the Best Pair Award along with Gopika at Asianet Film Awards. "Jeeva the Tamil actor has a more heroic role which he has done with felicity. The physical energy he imparts to the role has to be seen to be believed," wrote Sify.Later, the movie was dubbed and released in Tamil as Aran. His last movie in 2006 was E, where he portrayed the role of a slum dweller, opposite Nayanthara.

The year 2007 saw the release of Kattradhu Thamizh, which turned out to be a sleeper hit. Jiiva's role as Prabhakar, a lower middle-class post-graduate student in Tamil Literature, who turns out to be a sociopath, frustrated by the inequality in society, was praised highly by critics and widely called one of his best films to date. According to a Rediff.com review,[3] "Prabhakar, Jeeva leads you through dimensions that are frankly amazing, endearing as the young, vulnerable Prabha, [...] perfect as the ganja-smoking near-lunatic [...] and freaking brilliant as the frustrated Tamil graduate". A Behindwoods review labelled it "a performance of his lifetime". Jiiva said that after completing the shoot, he had to undergo therapy to "come out of the character" as it was "too emotional".

Jiiva had two more releases after that, Rameswaram in 2007 and Thenavattu in 2008. Both movies performed averagely at the box office.

2009–2011 (success)

He appeared in director M. Rajesh's maiden venture, the comedy film Siva Manasula Sakthi (2009). In 2010, he starred alongside Poonam again in Kacheri ArambamSingam Puli, where played dual roles, was his first 2011 release, following which K. V. Anand's political thriller Ko (2011) released. Rediff stated that the role was a "cake-walk for Jiiva: he's had a ball with the camera, clicking shots in almost impossible situations and making sure his trademark effervescence is present at all times", while Sify said that with this performance he was "going to be a force to reckon with in Tamil cinema". His next two films Rowthiram and Vandhaan Vendraan by R. Kannan released in quick succession; both opened to mixed critical reception.

2012-2016 (setbacks)

In 2012, he appeared in S. Shankar's comedy-drama Nanban which released to highly positive reviews and become a blockbuster. His next projects were Mysskin's superhero film Mugamoodi and Gautham Menon's Neethaane En Ponvasantham. Both these films turned out to be average grossers at the box office. After that, he worked on Bejoy Nambiar's David alongside Vikram which failed at the box office, despite getting positive reviews. His Next movie was the super hit movie Endrendrum Punnagai with director I. Mueenuddin Ahmed with an ensemble cast of Trisha Krishnan, Vinay Rai, Sathanam and Andrea Jeremiah. Following this film, Jiiva experienced a setback in his career. In 2014 he worked in cinematographer Ravi K. Chandran's directorial debut Yaan, which was a box office failure. Gone from the screen for one year, he had three releases in 2016, though all of his films bombed at the box office. He first starred in his 25th film Pokkiri Raja which was directed by Tamizhuku En Ondrai Azhuthavum fame Ramprakash Rayappa and was touted to be his 'comeback' film. However, the film, which released on 4 March 2016 to mixed to negative reviews from critics and was a box office failure. His next film was the long delayed Thirunaal in which he is paired with Nayantara for the second time was released in August 2016, was again a critical and commercial failure for the actor. His last release of the year was the adult romantic comedy Kavalai Vendam opposite Kajal Aggarwal directed by Deekay. Although the film was praised for the comedy part, it released to mixed reviews and it was a commercial failure at the box office.
