In the life of Cinema, an unpredictable turning point turns out an unbearable loss as Alummoodan Malayalam actor got heart attack as call back. In 1992, Alamoodan was 58, when he died on the sets of Priyadarshan's film called "Adwaitham" and movie's Mohanlal Combination scene was his last take as he was fell down in to the hands of Mohanlal. His eyes closed down when many precious characters awaits him in Malayalam cinema.

 Changanacherry's Chittipuzha, Joseph and Rossamma gave birth to the boy

Acting for Dominic is above from studies. He presented so many dramas in Chittipuzha. Dominic as name is not suitable for him as suggested by his mentors, so he changed his name to Allamoodan, instantly he became the comic star of KPAC and Changanassery Geeta.

 In the opera, Alummoodan lean figure appeared as big humour to the audience. 1966, "Anarkalli" was his first film. He got his big break in the movie called "Nadhi" as the character of "paili" in 1969. With this movie he dived in to the hearts of Malayalee as that period of  "Adoor Bhasi and Bahadoor."

 Allamoodan had his own style as he interfere in to script as his own movie and make the best out of him to create the beautiful  scene for the director.That ability of Alamoodan helped him to survive for 3 decades in Malayalam cinema. Above all from his dialogue delivery, he prefers his body language to glow the lights of comedy. With his unique walk and stand, with the dialogue delivery make every hard person to melt in front of him.

 'Aacharam Ammini Osharam Omana'  - Gopalan, Mamakam's - Rairu, Manjhil Virinjhe Pookal - Kushalan, Ittikarra Pakki's Hasan, Ariyapadath Rahasyam's - Andrews, Panchavatti Palam's- Yudaas, Kunjhaata Keeli's- Discipline Dicroose, Yatra's -  Parmu Nair, includes his caliber of acting. 

 These all defined his yearly maturation to perfection. His wish to act  in the title role accomplished with Tulsidaas' "Kasargod Khaderbhai". His adaptation of afraid don made movie more hilarious, but unfortunately movie released after Alummoodan's death.

 Rossamma is the wife of Allamoodan.
