In the late 90s and 2000s, it was quintessential to prove one's credibility as a mass action hero. With the film Shivam, in which he essayed the role of the lead role, he proved that such roles are safe in his hands.The movie wasn't a big success but the Biju Menon's performance as a fiery police officer gained attention.
Later on, he went on to etch a place in the other language film industries and with some of the movies, he proved that he can do villain roles with ease.
After a short break, Biju Menon bounced back heavily and that too trying his hands on comedy. With Ordinary and Seniors, he proved his ability in handling comedy with ease and with the arrival of Vellimoonga, he cemented his position as one of the most bankable lead heroes of the industry.
