Mammooty, Malayalam Film Actor

Mammootty with family

Muhammed Kutty, popularly known as Mammootty, is a very popular Indian film actor. He is among the few actors  who have won the National film award for best actor three times and six state awards in the ‘best actor’ category.He was the recipient of Padmashri in 1998  instituted by the Government of India.

Biography:

Mammootty was born to Ismail (an agriculturist) and Fatima (a homemaker). on September 7 1953 at Vaikom in Kottayam district of  Kerala . He did his high school (pre-degree) at Maharaja's College, Ernakulam and then studied law at Ernakulam Government Law College. During his college days at Maharajah's, he got his first role, a bit part in Anubhavangal Paalichakal in 1971. After passing out from Maharajah’s, he practised as a criminal lawyer in Manjeri for 2 years.
 

He started his career as an actor in Devalokam, which was not released in theatres. His acting skilll was first identified by the famous writer M.T Vasudevan Nair and Film director K. G. George. He first played as the  hero in the movie "Thrishna" directed by the veteran director  I.V Sasi,who had also directed his come back film "Aavanaazhi". The film New Delhi based on the novel, "The Almighty" by Irving Wallace directed by Joshy was a turning point in his career. His talent was exposed  by direction by M T Vasudevan Nair in films like Vilkanundu Swapnangal and by K.G George in films like Mela and Yavanika. He made his mark during 80’s and 90’s by enacting roles in films of stalwarts like M.T Vasudevan Nair, K.G. George, Padmarajan, P.N. Menon, and Bharathan. Later on his talent was utilised by internationally renowned directors like Adoor Gopalakrishnan, T. V. Chandran, and Pavithran.
 

Two of M. T Vasudevan Nair’s films with autobiographical elements were acted by Mammootty-Aksharangal directed by I.V Sasi  and Sukrutham directed by Harikumar. Oru CBI Diary Kurippu was also a major landmark in the history of Malayalam Cinema. Three more murder mystery sequels were produced with the same cast of characters- Jagratha (1989), Sethurama Iyer CBI (2004) and Nerariyan C.B.I (2005), all directed by K Madhu with Mammootty as Sethurama Iyer, an intelligent CBI officer.
 

Mammootty touched the pinnacle of his career in Oru Vadakkan Veeragatha roughly translated as “A northern heroic folklore”, again an M. T. Vasudevan Nair creation. Mammotty has received the National Award for best acting.Mathilukal based on Mathilukal, a novel by the Malayalam literary genius Vaikom Muhammad Basheer was instrumental in getting him his first National Award for Best Actor. His performance in two commercially off-beat movies Ponthan Mada by TV Chandran, and Adoor Gopalakrishnan's Vidheyan won him the award for the second time. His performance in Ambedkar, an English movie by Jabbar Patel won him the National award for a third time. Mammootty has briefly crossed the boundaries of Malayalam cinema and acted in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi films. Though he proved to be only a moderate success in Tamil after Mani Ratnam's Thalapathi, his other successes in Tamil include Anandam by Linguswamy and Kandukondain Kandukondain by Rajiv Menon. Mammootty's presence was felt on the national level with the biographical film on Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar, directed by Jabbar Patel.
 

He put an end to all criticisms by giving a striking performance in comic roles in movies like Rajamanikyam, Balram Vs Tharadas, Thommanum Makkalum,Thuruppugulan and Maayavi which were of great success
