He can give even the younger heroes a complex, with his dashing looks, though he is in his mid-sixties. He is a genius actor who has given life to several memorable characters not just in Malayalam, but in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. He is one of the most respected personalities from Kerala. With his latest release Abrahaminte Santhathikal, he is back with a bang, ruling the box office.
And he is the Sify star of the month of June. We are talking about the one and only Mammootty. Of course, he has amused millions of Malayalis with his acting skills. But his choice of scripts have been, let us say a bit surprising of late. With some forgettable roles one after the other, that too in quick succession, Mammootty has not been doing wonders at the theatres, the way he has done in the past.
But all that changed with Abrahamnte Santhathikal. Mammootty plays Derrick Abraham IPS in the action thriller, which has been setting the cash registers ringing, big time.
Meanwhile, his Tamil film, Peranbu, directed by Ram, has been receiving appreciation at several prestigious film festivals. And now the Malayalam superstar is busy playing the former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhar Reddy in the Telugu venture, Yatra.
Mammootty is, without doubt, the Sify star of the month.
