Prithviraj Sukumaran made his film debut at a young age in Nandanam, playing a mature role (Manu) (2002). He is one of the very few popular artists in Malayalam cinema who seeks to make films in several genres and has enhanced the importance of technical filmmaking ability. Although he was chastised for nepotism in the early stages of his career, his achievements surpassed those of his father, Late. Sukumaran.

Furthermore, he managed to provide superb performances in films like Ananthabhadram and in parts that no other actors dared to take on, such as Mumbai Police. So, to commemorate his prolific cinema career here is a handpicked list of Prithviraj Sukumaran’s Best Movies that are watchable on any given day.

Ranjithâ Nandanam is a family film with just the perfect amount of love and magic. Despite the fact that this is his debut film, Prithviraj Sukumaran gives an outstanding performance and plays his part with ease. Nandanam begins with Balamani (Navya Nair), a Lord Krishna devotee who finds herself working as a housemaid in an old, traditional house near the Guruvayur Temple. Manu (Prithviraj Sukumaran), on the other hand, returns home to see his grandma before departing on a trip overseas. As a result, despite their cultural differences, they are drawn to each other.

Lal Joseâ Classmates is one of the finest Malayalam movies centred on friendship, and the film’s principal topic is a nostalgic reunion. The amicable reunion transports the film’s characters back to their college days, which were full of fun, romance, politics, and rivalries. However, beyond the rainbows and sunlight, the film manages to take several fascinating turns that constitute the rest of the story. Prithviraj Sukumaran portrays Suku at various stages of his life with superiority and confidence, as a left-centric student leader and a seasoned business guy.

Anarkali is a gripping romance thriller about Shantanu (Prithviraj Sukumaran), an ex-naval officer, and Nadira (Priyal Gor), an adolescent girl, who resolve to wait to show their love to Nadira’s father, Rear Admiral Jaffer Imam (Kabir Bedi). When Shanthanu loses communication with her, he travels to Lakshadweep to find her. The complex narrative, directed by Sachy, provides a strong backbone to the picture, and Prithviraj Sukumaran plays his role with all the proper emotions.

Josephâ Memories tells the tale of Sam Alex (Prithviraj Sukumaran), an excellent police officer who suffers a family catastrophe that wrecks him emotionally. Eventually, he is assigned to the investigation of a serial murderer, but Sam, a former police officer, becomes hooked on drinking rather than focusing on the case. And the rest of the movie shows him trying to get closer to the serial murderer in various ways. The film’s storyline kept the audience engrossed in the plot, and Jeethu Joseph’s superb direction made Memories a must-see.

Urumi, a historical fiction, tells the narrative of Kelu, a 16th-century warrior, with beautiful images taken by cinematographer-turned-director Santhosh Shivan. The film alternates between present-day and 16th-century timeframes, and it is one of the few films in which various artists played parts in two distinct time periods. Krishnakumar (Prithviraj Sukumaran) arrives at his motherland and experiences a few occurrences that teach him about his ancestors’ past.
