Sathyan Anthikkad may be called the one and only minimum guarantee director in Malayalam cinema for almost past 30 years. The family support his films get here is awesome and he is always making medium budget films which relates to the day-to-day life of ordinary malayalees and people loves his films as well. When critics says that Sathyan Anthikkad films are like buses which always runs on the same route or in the same direction, they forgets the fact that his films always wins at box office and attracts the audience. That means the bus never gets break down and always reaches the destination safely. Sathayn Anthikkad was recently in news when he praised Mammootty and his latest film Pathemari. Now some reports coming in that Sathyan Anthikkad is planning a film with Mega Star Mammootty after the gap of long years.
It was in 1997 that they had done a film together last time and it was named Oral Mathram which was not well received at box office. Sathyan Anthikkad had directed most of his films with Mohanlal and Jayaram as these actors suits for the light hearted family films he makes.
Even though Sathyan Anthikkad had directed a few films with Mammootty in the lead like Kalikalam, Ardham, Kanalkkattu, No. 1 Snehatheeram Bangalore North, Golanthara Varthakal, Sreedharante Onnam Thiru Muriv, Oral Mathram etc not a single one got the success which he got through Mohanlal and Jayaram starrer films of his. Only Kalikkalam had got a moderate success in this list and there was even a talk in the industry that Mammootty- Sathyan Anthikkad pair was not a lucky one. Because even though their association ended up in failures, all of them are good films which was later got great following through mini screen telecast.
Sathyan Anthikkad’s next film is with Fahad Fazil and after that he is planning a family subject for Mammootty as per reports. As usual his previous film also was a box office success named Ennum Eppozhum which had his most favorite Actor Mohanlal in the lead. Sathyan Anthikkad always said that he consider his life blessed only because of 3 reasons and associating with Mohanlal is one among them as he consider Mohanlal as the best actor he ever saw and ever worked with.
