    v1 v1  
     1'''Kottarakkara Sridharan Nair(1922-86)''' 
     2 
     3 
     4Malayalam theatre star born in Kottarakkara, 
     5Kerala. Major actor over four decades in 
     6Malayalam cinema. His single most famous 
     7role was that of the father in Kariat’s 
     8Chemmeen. Tended to play a tradition-bound 
     9villain but his main impact was in shaping the 
     10iconography of the extreme right-wing Nair 
     11Service Society (NSS), the political voice of the 
     12formerly dominant Nair caste which later 
     13joined with Christian groups to create the 
     14militant Vimochana Samara to oppose the 
     15Communist government of Kerala by appealing 
     16to the military glories of this once-ruling 
     17warrior caste. Gave a high-flown, declamatory 
     18performance as Veluthampi Dalawa, the 
     19legendary Nair diwan who fought the British 
     20and later defied his own king. This figure 
     21became the subject of several stage and literary 
     22historicals (e.g. a play by Kainikkara 
     23Padmanabha Pillai) and was integrated into 
     24Kerala Congress rhetoric. This role and others 
     25like that of Kunjali Marakkar, a Muslim 
     26nationalist who joined the Zamorins in fighting 
     27the Portuguese in Malabar, defined the 
     28Rajapart, i.e. the image of the royal costumed 
     29hero on the Malayalam stage and later in film. 
     30Another famous Kottarakkara role is that of the 
     31old and lonely man who feels death to be ‘half 
     32an hour away’ in K.S. Sethumadhavan’s 
     33Aranazhikaneram.
