There is something interesting coming on the way for Jayaram fans. Reports suggest that his next film 'Satya' to be directed by Diphan, would be an action thriller.
We have seldom seen him in action/mass roles. Here are a few
movies in which the actor tried doing roles with some mass
Randam Varavu (1990)
This film directed by K Madhu was released in the year 1990 and
had Jayaram playing the role of a Pilot. The film was on the line
of a revenge drama and had the actor in an action mode.
This film is more of a comedy entertainer. But if we take a
close look, the role of Hareendran from this film is one the best
mass characters that the actor has done so far. The film was a big
success at the box-office.
Ivar had many specialities associated with the film. The film
was entirely shot using steadicam and was hailed for its technical
brilliance. Jayaram appeared as an undercover Police Officer in
this gangster movie. The film failed at the box office.
Mayilattam was a mix of both, as it had Jayaram in two different
roles. One role was that of a simple village guy and the another
one with a negative shade and mass appeal. The film was a
Thiruvambadi Thamban (2012)
Much was expected from this film directed by M Padmakumar.
Jayaram did look extremely good in the mass look and he went on to
give a good performance. But a lagging first half did spoil the
chances of the film to make it big in the box office.
Sir CP (2015)
Although tagged as a family entertainer, this film had portions
where the makers had tried to portray Jayaram in a mass avatar,
with some punch dialogues and action sequences. The attempt failed
badly as the movie flopped at the box office.
The script of Diphan's 'Satya' has been written by renowned
scenarist A K Sajan. Renowned actress Nikita Thukral will be seen
in an importan role in this film.
Most of the times we have seen Jayaram donning the hat of a
family man. He is best identified with down-to-earth characters
which made him hugely popular among family audiences.
He has been less successful in action/mass films. Many of the
times, we have seen the scripts of the films letting him down, even
if the actor goes on to do a good job.
His upcoming release is 'Aadupuliyaattam', directed by Kannan
Thaamarakkulam. The actor shed nearly 10 Kilos for the character
and we can see him in a new look altogether, sporting a stylish
Well, let's wait for his 'Aadupuliyaattam' and 'Satya' and hope that he would be back with a bang with different kinds of roles.
