Top 10 Malayalam Actors of 21st Century

List of greatest Malayalam cinema actors in 21st century.
The Top Ten
1 Mammootty Mammootty is an Indian film actor and producer best known for his work in the Malayalam film industry .

Face of Indian Cinema... Mega Star Mammootty...Most versatile actor ever produced in the world who acted in around 400 films having played 700 characters in his 48 year film experience...all time legend...

When Mohanlal acts in a movie, we see Mohanlal himself.But when Mammootty acts in a movie, we forget Mammootty and the character he plays lights up our mind. He is the true best actor in Malayalam, and it's only Megastar.

He is the best actor. He showed us that flexibility is not the capacity to dance, comedy. It is the ability to transform as anyone.

Mammootty is recognised as one of the finest actors in Indian cinema. He has been awarded the National Film Award for Best Actor three times

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

I hail from andhra. Lived in North India fro more than 4 years. A movie freak, Watched a lot of tollywood, Bollywood, Hollywood, Japanese, Korean, Tamil, Bengali, Malayalam movies. I would say that Mohanlal is the best actor I've seen till date. A very typical actor he is. His dialogue delivery and expressions - Peculiar, Outstanding. His body language is what mesmerizes me quite a lot. He leaves an impression on the people. It is for the better understanding of Malayalam Cinema & Culture, I am learning malayalam. I've watched nearly 100 movies of malayalam till date. Super actor nammada Lalettan!

Not only the greatest Malayalam actor, but the greatest Indian actor as well. Bollywood's so called "actors" should come and learn a thing or two about acting from him. What makes him so great is his naturality and spontaneity. You forget that Mohanlal's on the screen and see his character alone.

Kireedam, Bharatham, Chenkol, Devasuram, Sphadikam, Iruvar, Vanaprastham... just see him act.

And his comic timing and gestures are the best and most natural I've ever seen. He can make you laugh with just his expressions, like in the injection scene in Pattanapravesham. ("Yes, omelet; yes! ")

He's something else.

Comparisons Seldom Makes Reality. In Real @ Silver Screen where is 'Mohan Lal' and where is 'Mammootty'? No one can compare the performance of them. Mammootthy is a very Good Actor But Mohanlal is the Best Actor Ever we seen!

Oscar team... Just see his 1 movie so you will understand the power and the talent of this man...

U will definitely give him number 1 position.

3 Dileep

He has starred in more than a 100 Malayalam films, best known for his comic performances.

Kings of variety of roles. Freaky actor

Yo yo! Dileep is the best... Mammooty and Mohanlal it's time to retire from Cinema oldies

The mega star has come

4 Prithviraj Sukumaran

The most promising youth icon of malayalam industry who has the talent, charm, dedication and maturity to rule over mollywood in the coming years. He's not just multitalented but never fails to be the best in whatever he does

The finest talent in kerala film industry after mohanlal and mammootty.

Extremely handsome and dynamic.

Making waves in Bollywood too..

After the Big M's He is the best actor having great talent with versatile look as a main stream film star, and he reached the Bollywood, Kollywood & toll wood also.

He is the best actor after mohanlal and mamooty and dileep. He very better than Nivin pauly.

5 Suresh Gopi

Everyone thinks that he is a jealousy man. but he have a terrible story behind his life and he is very kind hearted

My opinion suresh gopi malayalam ranking 3 he is action king in with india

Suresh gopi number 1

6 Jayaram
7 Kunchacko Boban

I like kunchacko boban's performance. He is a good hansome gentle man. I think he is good in cute pretty romantic cinemas. May God Bless Him. From GRESHMA CLEMENT...

He is an innocent ever green hero.

He is a good actor

8 Jayasurya

One of the best actors of malayalam. Clearly a true born talent and gives full effort for all the roles he has given.
He has done the most versatile roles in such an awesome way. No one else can compare.

Jayasurya can do multifaceted roles with utmost ease. He has got a good fan following. Most established among youngstars in terms of star value and talent.

I love this actor because he can do all type characters... Always make his side perfect...

CaptAin movie is the career best of Jayasurya! He is acting in captAin is excellent!

9 Dulquar Salman

Mammooty is the most versatile actor I ever seen. This man keeps on rediscovering himself from time to time and that's what an actor need the most. When someone ask which is mammoty's best movie so far , we don't have to have a second thought ; it's the recent one .

Finally a really good looking actor from the Mollywood! He is a big talent and is adorable!

Good actor and very unassuming. Natural actor like this father.

Upcoming superstar... Really awesome and very cute... He has his own style of acting

10 Nivin Pauly

Good looks and good acting skills are quite a rare combination in actors across India. A very few like Mammooty and Prithviraj have both and now Nivin joins the league. He is a show stealer and definitely a very promising super star.

Undoubtedly he is the most successful actor of all the new-gen actors. Look at where his selections have led him! Bangalore Days, Oru Vadakkan Selfie, Premam - he is the box-office king as of most recently, as well as Dileep.

One of the best actors. I'm trying to watch all his movies. Eagerly waiting for the new one's.

Nivin is the most desired actor among malayalam actors. He should be up in the top 3 list.

The Contenders
11 Asif Ali

He is a good voter

12 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.

He is a good actor and good dancer and good fighter and he is number 1

13 Santhosh Pandit

Why is he 14th on the list. He is in the top 3 surely.

He will become top 1

14 Fahadh Faasil

Fahadh Faasil is the best among all the young actors in mollywood.He is going to lead the malayalam film industry in future. There is no other actor who can compete with his natural style of acting. He is definitely a versatile actor. He is a born-actor who can portray typical keralites on screen, which most young actors can't. 'Maheshinte Pradhikaaram', 'Varathan' and 'Thondimuthalum Drikksaakshiyum' are just three among his best performances.

We can see mammootty in fahadh... that is he can transform to any one

A natural born actor. The next Mohanlal

He is good actor
