     4Malayalam director born in Perinad Taluk, 
     5Quilon district, Kerala. Well-known 
     6cameraman, notably for Aravindan’s films but 
     7also for K.G. George and M.T. Vasudevan 
     8Nair. Graduate from the FTII’s cinematography 
     9course (1974). Directorial début, Piravi, was 
     10widely discussed in India and abroad. His 
     11camerawork (e.g. for Aravindan) virtually 
     12defines the look of Kerala’s New Indian 
     13Cinema with its soft, half-light effects that, in 
     14the black and white period, played a role 
     15reminiscent of Subrata Mitra’s work in 60s 
     16Bengali film. Colour work tends to suppress 
     17primary colours, their harsh introduction 
     18symbolising degeneracy or corruption. Also 
     19made several documentaries, e.g. Kerala 
     20Carnival, Manishada, Drishya Kerala, 
     21Kannikal etc.
