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...

Mammootty sir got 3national award and above 14filmfare award this his range in acting and this is giving the proof about he is best actor in malayalam cinema
In asias most promising award that is asiavision award he only got best millenium star award for the 75yrs of malayalam cinema that is he the best actor in 75yrs of malayalam cinema.

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 most rare actor in the world who can appear as 20 even in 70, who can became any charector. His main speciality is that he is different in different roles with same features...

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.

Dileep is the only man who can act any role if we said to lal and mamooty to act which was acted by dillep they will fail.

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

Since 2000 dileep got most successful film than mammotty and mohanlal by all time ratio

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 has the power to take up the malayalam movie and he is called next mammotty and mohanlal

5 Suresh Gopi

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.

Jayasurya is very much selective in his roles. And he has a mind of acceptance to all kind of roles

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.

He is good for all the roles... Very good acting esp in bangalore days and 1983... Really very good,... Appreciated

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
