Rajan P Dev - The villain who loved drama

Rajan P Dev - The villain who loved drama
We would like to borrow some words here "An artist has no territory, no boundaries" which resist him to perform his task. An artist own it all like a King and this perfectly suits for the person we are talking about and with the time he had terrified Malayali viewers with his look, mannerism and body language. On July 29th, it past 5 years for the memories of actor Rajan P Dev - The villain who loved the stage drama most.

 Perhaps the only villain, who was more
interested in doing plays during the peak of his career. On 20th May 1951, born to S J Dev and Kuttyamma in Cherthala, Alleppey. After completing his school level in Cherthala, Rajan P Dev had put on his step towards art field by becoming 'Film Representative' at Kunchacko's Udaya Studio. Later on stage drama had become his part of life, where he acted in many plays of prominent stage personalities like N N Pillai and S L Puram Sadanandan.

 His character 'Kochuvava' from the play 'Kattukuthira' went on to open the doors of Malayalam cinema. He tried his chances with the movie "Sanchari" (1981) directed by Boban Kunchacko. Noticeable role was handed over to him by director Fazil in the movie "Ente Mammattikuttiyammakku". 1990's released Thampy Kannanthanam directed "Indrajalam" movie bring on the new shade of villain with the character Carlos and it was all happened because of Rajan P Dev's style of rendering.

 In his illustrated career, he prefers to opt for comedy roles as well, where he did movies like "Aniyan Bava Chettan Bava", "Junior Mandrake", "Thommanum Makkalum", "Chota Mumbai". Bilingual film "Vande Maatharam" (2010) starring Mammootty and Arjun, was his last film. 

 His passion in stage drama led him to launch his own troupe named Jubilee Theatres. The actor had also directed three Malayalam movies, which are "Achammakuttiyude Achayan" (1998), "Achante Kochumolkku" and "Maniyarakallan".
