     1'''Mammootty (b. 1953)''' 
     2 
     3 
     4Malayalam star of the 80s. Born Mohammed 
     5Kutty in Chembu. Former lawyer practising in 
     6Manjiri. Discovered by the writer-director M.T. 
     7Vasudevan Nair, who cast him as the lead in 
     8the unfinished Devalokam. Formal début in 
     9Vilkannudu Swapnangal and Mela. Was 
     10associated in the early 80s mainly with lowbudget 
     11art-house films, e.g. Akkare, 
     12Koodevide?, Lekhayude Maranam Oru 
     13Flashback. Together with a new generation of 
     14directors like I.V. Sasi (America America; 
     15Alkoottathil Thaniye; Angadikkapurathu; 
     16Ayarthi Thollayirathi Irupathonnu), Jesey 
     17(Akalathe Ambili), P.G. Vishwambaran 
     18(Sagaram Shantham) et al., he signalled a 
     19new era in Malayalam cinema after Sathyan 
     20and Prem Nazir’s work of the 70s. The 80s in 
     21Kerala are marked by the ‘Gulf money’ remitted 
     22by expatriate workers, spawning a ‘newly rich’ 
     23consumerist sector and fostering a lumpenised 
     24urban mass culture. Mammootty’s films, like 
     25those of the other main star in Kerala, 
     26Mohanlal, were often financed by ‘Gulf 
     27money’ and played to the new audience of 
     28Gulf migrants. His best-known films repeatedly 
     29feature the hero as victim in violent vendetta 
     30stories (often with explicit caste overtones), 
     31evoking political and economic corruption and 
     32condemning the good hero either to cultural 
     33exile or to a violent death while defending his 
     34and his kinfolk’s honour. Dislocations within 
     35Kerala’s culture give new, local meanings to 
     36vigilante figures modelled on e.g. Bronson or 
     37Eastwood. Unlike Bachchan’s vigilante roles 
     38of the early 70s, Mammooty’s films stress 
     39religion and caste and often have a tragic 
     40ending. Classic roles include the forest 
     41conservator in Yathra, the misunderstood 
     42Kalaripayattu martial-arts exponent in Oru 
     43Vadakkan Veeragatha, the Moplah freedom 
     44fighter in Ayarthi Thollayirathi Irupathonnu 
     45and his cop roles in Oru CBI Diary Kuruppu 
     46and Avanazhi. His reputation spread beyond 
     47Kerala with Adoor Gopalakrishnan’s 
     48Anantaram and Mathilukal (playing the 
     49Malayalam writer Vaikom Mohammed Basheer 
     50in the latter film). Although he has done several 
     51Tamil films (inc. Mani Rathnam’s Dalapathi), 
     52has been established as a Tamil star only with 
     53the success of Makkal Aatchi. Published his 
     54autobiography: Chamayangalillathe.
