Konnanatt's Surumaitta Kannukal. After this film, he was introduced to Sathyan Anthikkad by scriptwriter Sreenivasan. He landed a role in Gandhinagar Second Street. His portrayal of Gafoor in Sathyan Anthikkad's MohanlalSreenivasan starring Nadodikkattu (1987) carved a niche for him in Malayalam cinema.
