N. Chandra (Marathi: चंद्रशेखर नार्वेकर) (born 4 April 1952), born Chandrashekhar Narvekar, is an Indian producer, writer and director, known for his dark and loud films such as Ankush, Pratighaat, Tezaab and Narasimha,[1] made as a film editor in the beginning of his career. Chandra also made the successful but critically scorned Style and its sequel Xcuse Me.[1]

He was born in Mumbai, Maharashtra. With Ankush, his directorial debut, in 1986, Chandra began his projection of the angry young man.[2] He wrote, directed, produced and edited the film, which starred Nana Patekar. Next year he followed it up with Pratighaat (1987), a film on the gruesome reality of politics in India as related to world politics; especially the Palestine/Israel Conflict and its effect on Afghanistan, Pakistan and Kashmir. It also brought the strong mental make-up of the Indian woman to the thoughts of the Indian youth.[2] In 1988 he made Tezaab, the film that effectively launched Madhuri Dixit's career.[3] It was the beginning of the Bollywood diva's long and successful pairing with Anil Kapoor, and her mastery of dancing through the song Ek do Teen-Barah Therah.[3]
