The List | Oduvil Unnikrishnan in Sathyan Anthikkad’s Movies

Oduvil Unnikrishnan in Ponmuttayidunna Tharavu
Oduvil Unnikrishnan got some of the best roles in his career from  the 20-odd years of a deep and wonderful friendship he had with Sathyan Anthikkad. From Appunni in 1984 till his last movie, Rasathanthram in 2006, the Sathyan-Srinivasan team led us through a gamut of characters brought to life by Oduvil, pulsing with the innate goodness of the simple life and simple living. I have tried to collate all the movies of Sathyan Anthikkad that  Oduvil appeared in, but I do not claim this list to be definite .

If there are additions or deletions, please let me know. Most of these are from memory and its possible that errors might have crept in.

  1. Isn’t Thalayanamanthram directed by Sreenivasan?

    One scene of Oduvil that I can’t forget is where he runs after a cow calling ‘Paasu, Paasu’…..!

    Loved his acting….

    1. Hi Sunny,
      Thalayanamanthram is directed by Sathyan Anthikkad and scripted by Sreenivasan. vadakkunolkkiyanthram (1989) and Chinthavishtayaaya Shyamala (1998) are Sreenivasan’s outing as a Director, both Award winning ventures. The scene that you described is from Ponmuttayidunna Tharavu, where he plays Pappi, the bullock-trader. 🙂 Will be writing about that very soon in the first part of the Anthikkad movies..Thanks ..Regards..:)
