In the year 2000, he wrote dialogues for Nuvve Kavali, which won the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Telugu for that year. Regarded as the "wizard of words" Trivikram's craft is known for its high dose of comedy, fast-paced repartee, farcical situations, escapist themes, and comedy thriller plot lines involving action, emotion, courtship, family and marriage.

High School and Intermediate at D.N.R. College in Bhimavaram and graduated with a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) from DNR College, Bhimavaram. He then attained master's degree in nuclear physics from Andhra University as a gold medalist.

Trivikram and actor Sunil graduated from the same college in Bhimavaram. They are close friends, and were roommates in the initial stage of their film careers. Sunil considers Trivikram as the most influential person in his life. Trivikram also worked as a teacher in a school, teaching Maths and Science. His teaching methods were innovative and he was successful in making the students understand the subjects very easily. Later, he reached Hyderabad, and stayed with Sunil, writing stories for Daily Serials.

Sunil (actor) introduced him to actor Gowtham Raju who asked Trivikram to take Tuition's for the former's children. In the meanwhile Trivikram also wrote a short story "Road" which was published in a Leading Telugu Weekly. He was invited to work on a film starring Chiyaan Vikram, which was loosely based on the novel "Sleeping With The Enemy".

Trivikram had no plans to write film dialogues, but instead had an interest in directing. Sunil, has introduced gowtam raju initially and then gowtam raju in turn introduced Trivikram to T.D.V. Prasad, who asked Trivikram to write the dialogue for the climax scene of the movie he was working on. Prasad, impressed with the result, then asked Trivikram to work as an assistant to director K. Vijaya Bhaskar. It was during this project the Trivikram received an offer to write dialogue for the movie Swayamvaram. Swayamvaram was the first film for which he got a chance to write dialogue.

Although Swayamvaram was the first movie for which Trivikram wrote dialogue, but Nuvve Kavali, was released first. Trivikram went on to write dialogue for Chiru Navvutho, Nuvvu Naaku Nachav, Malliswari, Jai Chiranjeeva and Manmadhudu. He also worked as dialogue writer for the Telugu movie Vasu starring Venkatesh and Bhumika Chawla directed by A. Karunakaran. Though known as a dialogue writer, Trivikram also penned lyrics for a song in the movie Oka Raju Oka Rani, and sang a bit of the song Computersu Artsu Scienceu in his directorial debut Nuvve Nuvve.
