Unni Mukundan is a young actor who is quite popular now among Malayalee audience. Unni made his entry into Mollywood with the film Bombay March 12 directed by Babu Jananrdhanan in which he shared screen space along with Mega star Mammootty. It was in the year 2011 and for his first film itself he got the best male debutant award given away by Asianet and also got SIIMA award for the same category as well. Unni Mukundan proved his acting talent and announced his arrival with the very first film of his Mollywood career.
Later he done some films like Bangkok Summer and Thalsamayam Oru Penkutty. But the film which turned his career and made him a popular young star was Mallu Sngh conmceived by Vaisakh and it was a super success. He shared screen space with Kunchacko boban in that film in which he played the title role. The success of that flick really made him popular among Malayalees like any other young actor and really set up a platform for him to build his career to another level. But later some films he had done has nothing to offer to him and to the audience much and it seemed that this talented actor is losing his track.
But Unni Mukundan took a clear break and back with a bag with the success of Vikramadithayn helmed by Lal Jose in which he played the male lead along with Dulquer Salmaan. It was really a fresh and rejuvenated Unni Mukundan and from there he really began to choose wisely. He had seen again with Mammootty in Fireman which was a different role for him as a fireman. It was well appreciated as well.
