Jagathy & Mala

Jagathy & Mala

        I do not know what will come up if you Google the above words. You can try out this also. Go to any place in Kerala and ask the people what they think of ‘Jagathy’. They will pause for a minute for, In Kerala, these words can mean two things. These can be names of places. At the same time, these can be names of two immensely talented actors too. 

        Jagathy Sreekumar and Mala Aravindan are two veteran comedians of Malayalam film industry. They both have made us laugh and cry with their craft. ‘Jagati’ is a place in Trivandrum, the capital of Kerala and ‘Mala’ is a place in the ‘Thrissur’ district.

            Although Jagathy has done many memorable roles, one that has always stayed with me is his role in the film ' Sukhamo Devi'. There is a scene where he goes to Mohanlal's burial place and he salutes. It is heart breaking. Mala has always come to my mind in the role of a talented comedian. What about you?
