Renjith Is Emerging As The Most Talented Director Of Malayalam


If we go through the flop movies, Rock and Roll of Mohanlal or Nasrani of Mammooty or through the screen plays of masala movies like Pradesika Varthakal or Subhayatra, can we ever imagine a powerful screenplay writer or director hiding inside this artist who always flies behind commercial movies? Not at all! Renjith started his journey as a screenplay writer and during 90’s he has written some powerful stories like Devasuram, Maya mayuram, Narasimham, Summer in Bethlehem and Ravan prabhu. It’s not at all easy to count the boxoffice hits of Renjith as a screenplay director.


But the new millennium witnessed this great script writer of 90’s changing his path and wearing a director’s cap. His debut movie as a director was ‘Ravanaprabhu’ in 2001, sequel of his own script written for Mohanlal, Devasuram. This movie was a roaring success in Kerala with ‘superstar dialogues’, placing him as a successful director of Malayalam. Next year we saw Lord Krishna in the form of Guruvayurappan in the movie – Nandanam, the movie remembered most for powerful story, super music of Raveendran and brilliant performance of Navya Nair as Balamani, a true devotee of Krishna. Even in the modern world, Renjith took us to a magical world which forced us to believe that Lord Krishna can take an avatar to meet his devotees. This movie marked the debut of Pritviraj too.


Then he did movies of many genes – masala type and parallel cinema. Chandrolsavam, Ammakkilikood, Thirakkada and Mizhirandilum belong to this group while Rock and Roll and Nazrani belong to commercial movies. In 2009, we saw a sudden drift of Renjith from commercial movies to critically well acclaimed movies; he reduced number of movies also.


In 2009, he wrote and directed ‘Palerimanikyam oru pathira kolapaathakathinte katha’ in which Mammootty placed three distinct roles. This movie was remarked as the best movie done by Renjith and also considered among the trendsetters of Malayalam. This movie received many awards and very soon we saw doing many social welfare movies. The latest one was ‘Spirit’ that won National awards in 2013 for best movie on Social issues. Pranchiyettan and Saint and Indian rupee need special mention.
