This is one of the most loved characters of Malayalam cinema. Sunny, the character played by Mohanlal, is the epitome of friendship and we still keep that character close to our hearts. Mohanlal played the role with utmost perfection, making it memorable.
Dr Sunny In Ulladakkam
A calm, composed and mature character portrayed effectively by Mohanlal. Dr Sunny is a psychiatrist who runs a hospital and his life changes when Reshma (Amala) comes into his life as a patient. Mohanlal won the Kerala State Award for the Best Actor for his performance in this film.
Dr Sunny Joseph In Manichithrathazhu
How can we forget this easily identifiable character, which etched a mark of its own in Malayalam cinema? Dr Sunny Joseph, who is a bit eccentric, funny but focussed, was brilliantly portrayed by Mohanlal. We can't imagine anyone else other than Mohanlal in that particular role. Mohanlal went on to reprise the same role in Priyadarshan's Geethanjali(2013).
Sunny Palamattom In Varnapakittu
This time Mohanlal did come in the role of an 'achayan' who turns a big businessman in Singapore. Mohanlal was at ease as Sunny Palomattam and gave a very fine and memorable performance.
It has to be noted that, most of the films given in the above list were big hits and have a cult fan following even now.
So, it wouldn't be wrong to consider that the name Sunny as a lucky mascot for Mohanlal. Similarly, we have seen other actors from Malayalam industry also having a special affection towards a particular name.
Dr Sunny Joseph, from Manichithrathazhu, is the most remembered one among the lot. The character is so popular just like the movie Manichithrathazhu. When we hear the name Dr Sunny Joseph, it would be Mohanlal who comes to our mind first.
Including Manichithrathazhu, Mohanlal has had the on-screen name Sunny in six films. Out of the six films, Geethanjali(2013) had the actor reprising the role of Dr Sunny Joseph from Manichithrathazhu.
Well, we are eagerly waiting for Mohanlal's next appearance as Sunny. Hopefully, that would also become another memorable character like the others in the list.
