Ratheesh : The Unsung hero

remembering Malayalam actor Ratheesh
On 23rd December 2012, it past 10 years when we lost our memorable and lovely actor Ratheesh, who step back while on the peak of his career or whether he made his return to the Malayalam cinema after the gap, all conveys his elegance towards the Malayalam Cinema and its lovers....

Ratheesh always prefers his first choice to be related to films, born on 1954 in Kalavoor, which was the part of Thiru - Kochi and now in Alappuzha. Along with the Malayalam films, He also had his interest in farming ,for that he bought up a land in Tamil Nadu to do the farming, but the results not came in his favour. After not finding success in agriculture, Ratheesh perceived about
the financial crunch, which kind of disheartened him. In the end of 70's, Ratheesh made his debut through the Malayalam film "Vezhambal" with the small time role and later in 1979, his second small appearance came up with the film "Ullkadal" directed by K.G.George.

 With the beginning of 80's, Ratheesh slowly started his journey to the success with the release of Bharathan directed "Chamaram" and I.V.Sasi's "Thusharam". Bharathan's "Chamaram" showcased Ratheesh as a lover, who waits for his lady love, It also consist the classic song "Nadha Nee Varum Kalocha Kelkuvan" sung by  S.Janaki and music was composed by M.G.Radhakrishnan. "Thusharam" depicts another side of Ratheesh, which enhances the more opportunities for him. "Ammakkorumma", "Ahimsa", "Ee Nadu", "John Jaffer Janardhan", "Gurudakshina", "Oru Mukham Pala Mukham", "Inniyenkilum", "Lekhayude Maranam Oru Flashback", "Ivide Igane", "Unaru", "Ottayan", "Shatru", "Akachiyude Kunju Vava", "Ayiram Kannukal", "Abkari", "Thanthram" are the few films which include his stint in the Eighties.

 As on that era, Superstar's emergence effected the chances of mainstream heroes, in which one of them was Ratheesh. In that space of time, Ratheesh find his characters in Negative shades and the time was past when Romantic action star Ratheesh gets out of the most paid actors. After 1989, he had not acted in Malayalam films, but was active as a producer in 1990 with "Ayyar The Great". This was the time, when actor goes through difficult time of his life. After the span of 5 years, in 1995, Ratheesh returned to the Malayalam cinema with the movie "Kashmeeram" and then on the character of Mohan Thomas in the movie "Commissioner" turn on the tide again towards Ratheesh with the most sort after Villains, but as the everyone say life is struggle, late on 90's Ratheesh just limits his character and done films like "Danny" and "Ravanaprabhu" was the remarkable one.

  At the age of 49, Dec.23, 2002, Malayalam actor Ratheesh leaved the arena of Malayalam cinema with his memories of over 160 films. He was married to Diana, and Parvathy, Padmaraj, Padma and Pranav are the childrens.

  1. I wonder what made him an alcoholic ( if I may use the word)? In film field particularly nobody can be believed. People whom one helped in need may not turn towards him, once he succeed and the other fail. Only human can be such inhuman.
