5 Best Mammootty Films to Stream on Sun NXT and OTTPlay Premium

Pranchiyettan and The Saint

Director: Ranjith

Cast: Mammootty, Innocent, Priya Mani, Khushboo, Siddique


Mammootty played the titular character, Cherammal Eenashu Francisis, aka Pranchi, a rich businessman who is going through a mid-life crisis. The megastar’s excellent performance in Ranjith’s satirical drama, which has a touch of humour, and his impeccable dialogue delivery in the authentic Thrissur slang are an absolute treat to watch.

Paleri Manikyam: Oru Pathirakolapathakathinte Kadha

Director: Ranjith

Cast: Mammootty, Shweta Menon, Siddique, Mythili

The multiple National Award-winner teamed up with Ranjith yet again for Paleri Manikyam: Oru Pathirakolapathakaithinte Kadha, the movie adaptation of TP Rajeevan’s popular novel. Mammootty stunned audiences with his performances in triple roles as the cruel landlord Murikkinkunnathu Ahammed Haji, his son Khalid Ahammed, and his illegitimate son Haridas Ahammed in the movie, which went on to earn cult status.


Director: Venu

Cast: Mammootty, Aparna Gopinath, Nedumudi Venu, Joy Mathew, Renji Panicker

Mammootty teamed up with cinematographer-director Venu for the psychological thriller Munnariyippu, during one of the most underwhelming phases of his career. The megastar delivered a brilliant performance as CK Raghavan, a prisoner convicted of double homicide, in the spine-chilling film, which earned immense love from film fanatics and critics.


Director: Anwar Rasheed

Cast: Mammootty, Rahman, Saikumar, Manoj K Jayan, Ranjith

This Anwar Rasheed directorial, which re-established Mammootty as the crowdpuller of Malayalam cinema, is much more than just a mass action thriller. The veteran actor played the titular character, Rajamanikyam, a rich yet uneducated businessman who hides the wounds of a troubled, painful childhood underneath his loud personality. Mammootty also set a new benchmark in dialogue delivery by handling the Trivandrum dialect in the film like a pro.


Director: Blessy

Cast: Mammootty, Padmapriya, Yash Gawli, Sanusha

Blessy, the Aadujeevitham director, made his directorial debut with the heartbreaking family drama Kaazhcha, which won the hearts of both audiences and critics. Mammootty played the role of Madhavan, a simple village man from a small town in Kerala who develops a deep bond with a six-year-old Gujarati boy who was displaced from his native place and parents.
