In his directorial feature debut, in 2017, he released the thriller Maanagaram, which performed well at the box office. He wrote the script and directed, describing the story’s structure as “hyperlinked” subplots. It has Sundeep Kishan, Sri, Regina Cassandra, Madhusudhan Rao, and Charle as the main cast.

His second film Kaithi revolves around a story of a released prisoner who spent 10 years of Jail sentence. On his way to meet his daughter for the first time, the protagonist was forced to help a senior police officer from deadly drug lords. In the midway of making Kaithi, Lokesh got the opportunity of directing Vijay, one of the most bankable star in Tamil film industry.

The film which is tentatively titled as Thalapathy 64, has Anirudh Ravichander as music composer and the film includes actor Vijay Sethupathi as the antagonist.

As the fans of Tamil cinema are not relieved from the awe of the director’s growth, the next update about his directorial venture shook the Internet.

The filmmaker is an ardent fan of actor/director Kamal Haasan which he said in many of his interviews. He even said that Kamal Haasan’s Virumaandi is the inspiration for his Kaithi.
