Puthiya Niyamam, the Mammootty starrer social thriller, hits the screen on February 12th. Mammootty is playing the central character Louis Pothen, who is a leading advocate and social activist.
Interestingly, the megastar himself is a lawyer in the real life. Mammootty graduated in Law from Govt. Law College, Ernakulam. He was practicing as an advocate at Manjeri court, before entering the films.
Here we present the most popular lawyer characters played by Mammootty...
Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar
Mammootty essayed the Father of Indian Constitution, Dr. Babashaeb Ambedkar in this biopic, and won the National Award for Best Actor. We all know that Dr. Ambedkar was a lawyer by profession.
Mammootty's Adv. Nandagopal Marar is undoubtedly one of the most celebrated cameo appearances of Mollywood. The actor just stole the show with his electrifying character. The team even planned a movie with Marar as the central character, but it didn't materialize.
Oru Abhibhashakante Case Diary
Mammootty essayed Adv. Aniyan Kuruvila, a young, highly talented criminal lawyer in the movie. Oru Abhibhashakante Case Diary is considered as one of the best thrillers in Mammootty's career.
The movie, which has been considered as the mother of multi-starrers, had Mammootty in the role of Adv. Ramesh Nambiar. It is one of the most celebrated lawyer roles in the history of Mollywood.
Mammootty played Adv. George Korah Vettickal, a lawyer who helps a widow to seek justice from her late husband's relatives. It was a very different role in Mammootty's career.
Mammootty played Adv. Bhaskara Pillai, a criminal lawyer in the movie, which marked his collaboration with the makers of CBI Series, director K Madhu, and writer SN Swamy.
Mammootty once again teamed up with K Madhu and SN Swamy, for his Tamil debut Mounam Sammadham, in which he played an advocate again. His character, Adv. Raja was highly appreciated by the Tamil audiences.
The megastar plays Adv. Louis Pothan, a leading advocate, who is also a strong believer of communist ideologies, in this thriller, directed by AK Sajan. Louis is also a film critic and social activist.
