Vijayaraghavan, a versatile actor

A versatile actor, Vijayaraghavan hails from a family synonymous with drama in Kerala. He is the son of N.N. Pillai, the iconoclastic playwright-director who revelled in taking on the so called conventions and accepted social mores in Kerala and thus paving for a revolution of thoughts. Vijayaraghavan made his film debut with Kaapaalika, based on N.N. Pillai's play of the same name in 1973. In 1983, he debuted as a male lead in films with 'Surumayitta Kannukal'. However, it was his role in New Delhi, the Joshiy directed Mammotty film, which gave him a break. Vijayaraghavan excelled in every role he was given: be it the villain, character roles or even that of a comedian. One can't forget the roles he played in the films Ramjirao Speaking, Ekalavyan, Mafia, King and Meleparambil Aan Veedu. An actor with more than 300 films to his credit, Vijayaraghavan speaks about his life and cinema in Ee Vazhitharayil. Episode 127.
