In 1989, Krishnankutty acted in Sathyan Anthikad’s Malayalam black comedy film, Varavelpu, which stars Mohanlal and Revathi in the lead roles. Krishnankutty played as the drunkard father of Revathi. A scene in the film shows Mohanlal and Krishnankutty having an argument. Mohanlal pushed him away, and he fell on the ground, which created a nice comedy in the movie.

In the same year, he was seen in another directorial film of Sathyan Anthikad titled Mazhavilkavadi, which stars Jayaram and Urvashi. He played as Kaleeswaran Kavalayil Kali Muthu, a barber, and the father of Urvashi. A scene in the film shows Krishnankutty while exercising and putting some oil on his thin body. Urvashi’s way of praising his health to Jayaram was really funny.

Apart from that, he acted in a series of films and established himself in the field of comedy. He was later seen in films like Chanchattam, Kadinjool Kalyanam, Kuttapathram, Ulladakkam, Mookilla Rajyathu, Kizhakkan Pathrose, O’Faby, Kavadiyattam, Sthalathe Pradhana Payyans, Dollar, Boxer, Vrudhanmare Sookshikkuka, Avittam Thirunaal Aarogya Sriman and many more.[3]
