Best Actors In Malayalam

The Top Ten

Mammootty Mammootty is an Indian film actor and producer best known for his work in the Malayalam film industry .

Of late people started calling him "The Face of Indian Cinema". The much acclaimed megastar of mollywood is the only person in India if not the world who can rightly hold on to this tag. Apart from the the innumerous awards he has bagged, he has adorned almost all the faces in various strata of a Keralite (Native to the state of Kerala, from where he hails) and has stretched further into Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, English and Hindi movies. He has spoken around 19 different dialects of Malayalam covering the entire state of Kerala, the Indo-Britain English and other foreign languages not with ease, yes, but with effort drawn out of passion. He has leveraged himself to the most to bring out the best in him. With much pride, I can proclaim and vouch for Mammooty as the best actor in India and the best method actor in all over the world.

Mammootty, by nature he is a Method actor. He proves his passion, charisma and flexibility in films. His transformation from self into characters give him much an outstanding performance in Screen. He grace with his physical and vocal ability to create a character beyond our imagination. The gravity in his acting mark him as an entity.
Mammootty can be considering as the Greatest Actor ever lived. He can compare with worlds great actors. He have the capability to stand along with them or even went beyond them, as an entity.

Though he is not choosing much performance scope films, he is doing the best whenever there s scope...

Mohanlal Mohanlal Viswanathan Nair, better known as Mohanlal, is an Indian actor, producer and occasional singer best known for his work in Malayalam films .

God of acting
I can't believe how Mammookka came 1st in the list with lallettan 2nd.
It's a funny thing that every ranking site agrees that no actor alive in India can act like mohanlal.
They also admit that Mammookka overacts at times.
Yet some rare sites put Mammookka first as Kerala's best actor.
It should be lallettan.
Must see- Kireedam, Aram thamburan, devasuram, drishyam, ravanaprabhu etc..

Mohanlal the most refined product of malayalam film industry.. And with no doubt the most terrefic actor in Indian cinema.. He actually came into cinema as negative character but his talent made him the superstar of malayalam film along with mammootty.

Extremely talented actor! No one including Mammooty can be as experimental, versatile and even half successful as him in spite of doing the above.

The acting course at FTII, Pune shold be revised with the addition of a new topic "Lalism in Acting". Because he is the only natural and talented actor ever produced in the country with spontaneous acting ability and even reflecting the charecter in his minute body languages...
"He has an amazing ability to just be the character and not play the character"-Mani Ratnam.

Prithviraj Prithviraj Sukumaran, credited mononymously as Prithviraj, is an Indian actor, playback singer and producer best known for his work in Malayalam films.

Oh no what can we say about this great multi talented superstar. Prithviraj has an abilities which other actors has not. He has capability to do any type of roles. he will be in the top in upcoming years. Thanks to god to giving this star In malayalam industry

I like Dileep as a character. He's always funny and know's when to make everyone laugh at the right time. He also know's how to say emotional things when the time is right. I also like him because he's funny just like I want to be like. Good luck in your future films and roles.

Dileep ettan the real hero.. The one and the only actor in malayalam who had done a lot of variety roles.. The hero of the masses as well as the family audience love him..

Characters is not a problem to this actor. He is ready for do any characters in without any mistake. So he is a good actor in Malayalam filim industry.

He has the ost veritality and can do anything like mohanlal and kamaal hassan he is the best in the world at what he does

Youth star

Like father like son. He is the most promising actor Malayalam Film industry has seen in the recent times. He is just getting better with each of his films and he has the looks to die for. Definitely the best in the young era!

The king actor of new generation who knows only acting. This films are the best of 2012

Greatest actor in the Malayalam industry. Just see Kali and Charlie to get the visual proof. His expressions are really natural and it doesn't appear faked.

Nivin Pauly

Nivin pauly is such a natural actor. He can act both serious and comedy roles with ease. His film Hey Jude.superb movie.His dedication level is awesome. His new movie kayamkulam kochunni he amazed the audience. He is wonderful. At his younger age he acted a father role. Which was also amazed. He is a versatile actor according to me. Love you Nivin pauly. My ambition also to become an actor.

He's obviously a great actor and he has the ability to make people laugh through acting which I personally believe is a quality that an actor needs the most.

Superb actor in Malayalam film industry who have greater dedication and my favourite film of his is action hero biju and I think no other actors can't make this film much better than him.

Nivin pauly is the youth sensation in molly wood. He changed trend set in youths in Kerala. he has lot of girl fans & family audience it became him as Janapriyanayakan'. he has most fans audience I outside Kerala...

Kunchacko Boban

Awesome selection of films and he is performing well in his every film too.

Excellent actor in Malayalam film industry

He is the one of most handsome actor in malayalam film industry


He is one of the brilliant actors of the malayalam industries and he play any role. I really enjoy his movies.

No replacement for him in malayalam film industry.
He doesn't act, but simply he live the situation

Jagathy sreekumar is the best actor (not hero character) in Malayalam film industry.

He is the pearl of malayalam film industry


I think he is best actor in this Universe, no one can come near him. It makes you feel real when you watch his films. No one can ever fill his space in film industry. We will always miss him

To handle a father's role in malayalam cinema no one can as much apt compared to Tilakan... Current mega/super stars got this kind of a position in publics mind due to the effort of this actor too...

Thilakan should be in top 3. Prithviraj shall be after 10. This list lost its trust when you put Prithviraj and Nivin Paul in top 5

Most versatile and genuine actor

The Contenders

Suresh Gopi

One of the finest actors of mollywood, the only one who gave a competition for both Mohanlal and Mammoty. Should be placed in the 3rd position. Superstar of Millions.

What Suresh Gopi sir is in the 13th rank?. What a stupidity and non seance is this. Suresh Gopi is one of the milestone of malayalam cinema. When we study about him you can understand what is his role in malayalam cinema. So don't be partial to your hero and be do like this list sincerly. Thank You.

Suresh Gopi is the best action king of Malayalam film Industry. No one to replace him for his role as the protector of truth and justice yet!

He is god of Cop roles, prefect dialogue delivery. Amazing body language.


He is a real star of the masses. But unfortunately he didn't get the recognition he richly deserves. Who has not liked his films? Almost everybody likes him and his acting. Very cheerful and spontaneous. He never projects himself much through the media. Perhaps that may be his weakness. He should go ahead with positive attitude and do his best. Rest will be taken care of by the masses.

In my school days, l used to see the films of jayaram. Jayaram's films made me happy during that days. If l take a film, it will be with him. He is the ever green super star of malayalam film industry.

Evergreen superstar of malayalam cinema who give maximum no of superhits n megahits...

Jayaram should come in the 3th position.After Mohanlal and Mammootty there should be Jayaram. King of Malayalam film Industry

Allu Arjun Allu Arjun is an Indian film actor who primarily works in Telugu cinema. After playing as a child artist in Vijetha and as a dancer in Daddy, Arjun made his adult debut in Gangotri. Arjun then appeared in Sukumar's debut film Arya.

Prem Nazir

The greatest actor of all time... the evergreen actor with great personality both on screen and off screen.

Prem Nazir is the most influential and trendsetting lead actor in Malayalam. He is known for his amazing longevity in that he was active during the peak years of other iconic Malayalam superstars like Sathyan and Jayan acting alongside them in 1960s and 1970s respectively. Nazir who began his movie career in the early 1950s, later acted alongside popular future stars like Shankar, Mammootty & Mohanlal by the 1980s. He was a mainstream superstar in Malayalam for over three-and-a-half decades (a world record)from the late 1950s to late 1980s. (Source: Wikipedia)

Definitely deserve number 1 in this list.

Vijay is the best

Super star


I am sure that Sathyan must be credited with the all time Best Actor that Malayalam cinema hitherto produced. In those days he revolutionized cinema acting and today's actors, including Mammooty and Mohanlal, deliberately or otherwise have learnt many things and still have to learn many things from Sathyan. I happened to watch many of his movies on the advice of a film analyst who has got a degree in film making from Pune film institute. The "Bhavabinaya" is unparalleled in Sathyan.

If you watch Sathyan today, in 2013, you can tell that he was breed apart even 60 years ago. If he were to be at the same age as Mohan Lal today, his movies will be at the Oscar for foreign films!

Sathyan is the Best Actor all time in Malayalam; without any doubt at all will accept the fact.

He is the best... Marlon Brando of Indian cinema
