Acting career

Mukesh began his career through the movie Balloon in 1982. In 1985, he acted in Mutharamkunnu P.O. directed by Sibi Malayil, scripted by Sreenivasan with the story from Jagadeesh, which was noted. Then came a series of slap stick comedies often with Priyadarshan like Ponnum Kudathinu Pottu, Akkare Ninnoru Maran, Boeing Boeing and Odaruthammava Aalariyaam. His breakthrough came in 1989 with the movie Ramji Rao Speaking directed by Siddique-Lal. Thereafter he established himself as a leading actor of Malayalam film industry. In the early nineties Mukesh along with Jayaram, Jagadeesh and Siddique acted in a number of low budget comedy movies, most of them being commercial successes. His major hits were directed by duo Siddique-lal. Apart from Ramji Rao Speaking, they worked together in In Harihar Nagar, God Father, Hitler, Chronic Bachelor and Friends. The characters he played were usually of a young man doing something fraudulent under the pressure of circumstances. The best example of a film with such a character is Sipayi Lahala (1995) by Vinayan and written by Sreenivasan.

His roles as a supporting actor with Mammootty were acclaimed in hit movies such as Thaniyavarthanam, Dinarathrangal, Mahayanam, Hitler, Chronic Bachelor, Nair Saab, Sainyam and Sangham. He portrayed the CBI officer Chacko in the four movies of CBI series directed by K. Madhu. He reportedly maintains a close friendship with Mohanlal and has acted with him in movies such as Hello My Dear: Wrong Number, Thalavattam, Vandanam, Akkare Akkare Akkare, Kakkakuyil and Boeing Boeing. In 2000's he struggled a bit to find better roles with passing age and an image-trap. Although he has come back strongly with interesting supporting roles in Udayananu Tharam, Goal, Vinodayathra, Boy Friend, Kaiyoppu, Naalu Pennungal and Katha parayumbol. He was a part of many super hit comedies of Mohanlal, most of them being directed by Priyadarshan.

Apart from acting, he also ventured into production with Sreenivasan. Their first movie Katha Parayumbol had a cameo by Mammootty and was the biggest hit of the year. Moreover, Mukesh was the host of Kodeeswaran a television program on the lines of Kaun Banega Crorepati which was aired on Surya TV and was a big success. Mukesh authored and published a book on his reminiscences and anecdotes from life. This book, in the Malayalam language, is titled Mukesh Kathakal - Jeevithathiley Nerum Narmavum[1]. This work is a collection of humorous experiences of Mukesh while he was a student of S.N. College, Kollam and also contains some tales from his life as a movie actor. His work was a big hit and was commented by many for his way of presentation and writing.[2]
