His critically acclaimed film, Jana Gana Mana, is set to be released on Netflix on June 2nd. So here are some of the best Prithviraj films available to stream on OTT.

Ennu Ninte Moideen (Hotstar)

The film is based on true events in the 60s that tell the tragic tale of love between Moideen, a Muslim man from a wealthy family, and Kanchanamala, a Hindu woman from a powerful aristocratic family. The film revolves around the various obstacles and the social stigma they face from family and society. Directed by R. S. Vimal, the film stars Prithviraj as Moideen while Parvathy Thiruvothu plays Kanchanamala, and it is widely regarded as an underrated classic.

Celluloid (Sun NXT, VI Movies)

Set in the 1920s, the film chronicles the real-life story of JC Daniel, who is regarded as the father of Malayalam cinema. Prithviraj plays the role of Daniel, who was ostracised by society for casting a woman named PK Rosy, who belonged to the lower caste, in his film, to essay the role of an upper-caste woman. Celluloid narrates the tragic tale of Rosy who had to flee her home and Daniel who would eventually lead an impoverished life until his death. Directed by Kamal, the film also stars Chandini as Rosy, Mamtaa Mohandas as Daniel’s wife Janet, and with supporting roles by Sreenivasan, Nedumudi Venu, and Ramesh Pisharody.

Ayalum Njanum Thammil (Sun NXT, Google Play, YouTube)

Directed by Lal Jose, Ayalum Njanum Thammil, is widely regarded as one of the most under-appreciated films in Prithviraj’s career. The medical drama chronicles the life of a young man named Ravi Tharakan who goes from being a carefree and entitled medical student to being one of the most respected cardiothoracic surgeons in the state. The narrative puts focus on his evolution as a man and a doctor, through his personal struggles, the valuable life lessons he picked up along the way, and most importantly the moral support offered by his mentor Dr. Samuel. The film offers a riveting thought-provoking narrative in addition to the excellent performances by the cast. Prathap Pothen essays the role of Dr. Samuel while Samvrutha Sunil, Narain, Rima Kallingal, and Remya Nambeesan essay supporting roles.

Indian Rupee (Sun NXT)

The 2011 film won the National Film Award for Best Feature film in Malayalam. Directed by Ranjith Balakrishnan, the film is a satire on the idea of getting rich without breaking a sweat. Prithviraj plays the lead as Jayaprakash or JP, a real estate agent who is willing to adopt unethical means to make money. Things soon spiral out of control and JP finds himself in an unsavory predicament. Thilakan, Rima Kallingal, Tini Tom, and Jagathy Sreekumar essay supporting roles.

Vasthavam (Hotstar)

The political satire released in 2006 is directed by M. Padmakumar. The film is a social commentary on aristocracy and casteism and explores themes of revenge, loss, lust, and Machiavellianism. Prithviraj plays the lead as Balachandran Adiga who transforms from a village simpleton to a powerful and conniving bureaucrat. Kavya Madhavan, Samvrutha Sunil, Murali, Sindhu Menon, Jagadish, and Jagathy Sreekumar essay other important roles. While the film may have aged poorly in certain aspects, it remains relevant in several contemporary socio-political issues.

Urumi (Sun NXT, VI Movies, Zee5, Plex)

The film is a dramatized and fictional version of the conflict between the local communities and the Portuguese trader Vasco Da Gama in the 16th century. In many ways, Urumi was far ahead of its time when it was released in 2011. Despite its relatively low production budget, the film excelled in visuals, sound design, costume design, and action sequences The story follows Chirakkal Kelu Nayanar, played by Prithviraj, and his companion Vavvali, played by Prabhu Deva, as they rise against their oppressors. Directed by renowned cinematographer Santosh Sivan, the film features a star-studded ensemble of Genelia D'Souza, Nithya Menon, Alexx O'Nell, and Jagathy Sreekumar, with guest appearances from Arya, Vidya Balan, and Tabu.
