Like his famous moniker, he stumbled into acting. First appeared in Anubhavangal Paalichakal when he was in school. “I saw a gunshot.” Mammootty asked K. S. Sethumadhavan, a prominent filmmaker, to cast him in the film. So he got his first acting job.
Mammootty is an actor with the ability to make positive changes. In Kasaba, he was a crude, vulgar, and sexist police officer, but in Peranbu, he was a loving, if unsettlingly aloof, father figure. He was able to morph in front of our eyes.
And the first directing signal he got from the director was ‘don’t act.’ Talent or hard work? Indeed. Mammootty is a living example. The 71-year-old actor wasn’t born with the ability to depict a range of emotions without sweating. Four decades of hard work, dedication, and refusal to quit.
The following is a list of the top 10 Mammootty films that everyone should watch.
