Though he was successful as a lyricist, his wish was to become a director. To fulfil that, he became assistant director to Dr. Balakrishnan. Sathyan kickstarted his film direction with Kurukkante Kalyanam in 1982 [1] and there was no turning back. He teamed up with Sreenivasan and made some of the most memorable films in Malayalam film history, with Sreenivasan as the screenwriter. Thalayanamanthram, Nadodikkattu and Sandesam are some of the films born from the team, with socially relevant matters in a comic touch. Sathyan made two novels into films:Appunni starring Superstar Mohanlal which was a film adaptation of V. K. N.'s novel and Irattakkuttikalude Achan starring Jayaram and Manju Warrier, which was an adaptation of C. V. Balakrishnan's novel.[2] Of late, he has ventured into screenwriting and made films like Rasathanthram and Vinodayathara, Innathe chinta vishayam and Bhagyadevatha with credits of story, dialogues, screenplay. He is a pet of family filmgoers because of his selection of plots in family-life background having social relevance and because of his comedic tastes[1]. He has often asked maestro Ilayaraja to set scores for his films. They teamed up in films like Achuvinte Amma, Manassinakkare, Kochu Kochu Santhoshangal, Rasathanthram, Vinodayathara, Innathe chinta vishayam and Bhagyadevatha. Many of the tracks from the albums were chart busters. His latest film Bhagyadevatha released on April 24, 2009.
