'Saying this with great pain...'; Director Kamal about Jayaram

kamal-kerala-director-jay

While talking with Kaumudi Movies, veteran director Kamal reminisced about the ill luck that prevailed in Jayaram’s acting career.

“He is a very underrated actor and it is with great pain I’m saying this” opined Kamal.

Director Kamal:

“He had an illustrious film career spanning decades but still somewhere he ran out of luck. It is such a shame that Jayaram is yet to receive a Best Actor state award. In the movie ‘Shesham’ Jayaram did exceptional work and the whole crew placed a bet on the state award to knock on his door the same year. Even we expected the 'national award for best actor' to come Jayaram’s way for his performance.

But alas, luck didn’t favour Jayaram. Most juries and people view him as a comedian and will judge only from that angle. People don’t want Jayaram to play serious roles, and it is such a despondent state because he is an actor par excellence.

The same expectation of Jayaram to win the state and national awards came back after we filmed ‘Nadan’. The actor played a serious role in the movie and worked so hard to perfect the character. The result was mesmerizing. Yet again, the ill luck came back robbing Jayaram of another award. The audience didn’t flock to theatres to watch the movie and it failed miserably. The pain inflicted by ‘Nadan’ is still with me and Jayaram. Some movies are like that. They do no wonders in theatres but remain a wonder in our hearts forever."
