R.Muthuraman was a leading Tamil actor  during 1960s and 70s and acted in villain roles and  character roles also.He was born in 1929 and his father, S.Kumaresan was an advocate.Muthuraman gave up his studies after intermediate course and joined in Gemini Studios.He was employed  in the administrative section of the Studio and served there for three years.He might have joined Gemini Studios in a job either for getting chance in films or  the interest to act in films might have entered in to his mind during his job over there.Anyhow he had to change his job and entered in another firm as a sales person.In 1957 he got chance to act in a Gemini Ganesan film and because of his talents he could get chances in other films continuously and became an established actor very soon.
Muthu Raman was fondly called as 'Nava Rasa Thilakam' as an appreciation to his acting skill.He had an expressive face which could show all the feelings fantastically well.He was able to act in more than 100 films and paired with all famous heroines of those period.Muthu Raman was equally good to handle anti hero characters and police inspector roles.He was an amicable personality who was  hardworking  also.Muthuraman, Jaya Sankar etc  had to earn fame and survive amid legends like MGR,Gemini Ganesan and Sivaji Ganesan etc but could earn the love and  support from the audience because of their extraordinary talents.
His movies Kalyana Parisu,Kathalikka Neramillai,Kase than Kadavuleda,etc were super hits.He acted opposite Kanchana in 19 films which is a record.
Muthu Raman's son Karthik is a Tamil actor who had been in lead roles of several films.He  is loved by the audience and  now he is a politician also.
Muthu Raman died of heart failure in 1982 when he was staying at Ooty and while going for jogging in early morning.
