He was in the industry for more than 45 years and made a comeback after a brief hiatus with 22 Female Kottayam.
He died on September 17, 2019 at Aluva.
He was the ninth child among ten children born to Khadarpillai and Fathima at Kadungalloor, Aluva, Ernakulam. His father was a landlord and his mother was a housewife. He had seven brothers, Abdu Kunjhu, Abdhulla, Kunju Mohammad, Kochumakkar, Veeravunny, V. K. Karim, Abdul Jaleel and two sisters, Khadeeja and Jameela. He had his primary education from Government High School West Kadungalloor Aluva and went on to pursue an M.A. in History from Union Christian College, Aluva.
During the filming of K. Narayanan's film Beena, the love affair of Sathar and Jayabharathi soon surprised many in the film industry. He later married the actress Jayabharathi in 1979 and parted ways in 1987. Many thought of it as a news story to hear actors working together in a few films together. The climax, however, was by no means expected. It was reported that the two were separated, but they continued to live in good health until years later and die. In the last days, Jayabharathi was his only trust. The couple's only son Krish J. Sathaar made his debut as an actor in acclaimed director Siddique' s Mohanlal-starrer Ladies and Gentleman. Even though Jayabharathi was away for years, he never married again. In many reports, Sathar and Jayabharathi were divorced, but they were not divorced.
Sathar died at 4:30 AM on 17 September 2019 at a private hospital(CA hospital,Aluva). He had been undergoing treatment for a liver problem for three months at a private hospital in Aluva. He was 67. The funeral was held at West Kadungalloor Juma Masjid.
