3-time
National
Award
Winner
Mammootty
is
one
of
the
best
actors
in
the
country.
With
4
National
Awards,
only
Amitabh
Bachchan
is
one
up
over
him
for
officially
‘the
best
actor
the
country
has
ever
seen’
tag.
What
makes
Mammootty’s
3
National
awards
special
is
that
one
of
them
is
for
a
film
in
English-Hindi
bilingual,
Dr.
Babasaheb
Ambedkar,
which
no
other
actor
has
managed
in
Indian
Cinema.
His
impressive
tally
of
superhits
in
languages
like
Tamil
and
Telugu
which
are
not
his
mother
tongue
makes
his
journey
even
more
special
as
very
few
Indian
actors
have
managed
this.

CBI The Brain

Now
the
legendary
actor
is
the
pride
of
Indian
cinema
having
achieved
a
feat
unparalleled
in
world
cinema.
He
is
playing
the
character
of
CBI
Officer
Sethurama
Iyer
for
a
record
5th
time,
over
35
years,
in

CBI

The
BRAIN,

which
is
due
for
release
this
summer.
The
first
film
Oru
CBI
Diarykurippu
released
in
1988
followed
by

Jagratha
(1989),

Sethurama
Iyer
CBI

(2004),

Nerariyan
CBI

(2005)
and
now

CBI
5-
The
Brain
(2022).

What
makes
the
feat
even
more
commendable
is
the
fact
that
the
actor
plays
not
just
the
same
character
but
portrays
the
same
age
across
all
these
films,
something
unheard
of
in
cinema.

Director
K.Madhu
and
writer
S.N.Swamy
have
also
been
permanent
fixtures
of
all
the
5
versions.
S.N.Swamy
the
man
who
created
the
character
of
the
smart
CBI
officer
35
years
ago
has
this
to
say
about
Mammootty’s
feat.
“It
is
unbelievable
for
even
us
when
we
see
him
on
screen,
I
mean
there
is
no
difference
between
1988
and
now,
one
can’t
even
make
out
any
difference
if
we
compare
pictures.
It
is
like
time
has
stood
still.
We
have
seen
various
actors
play
James
Bond
over
these
years,
but
this
man
goes
on
and
on.
His
discipline,
his
lifestyle
is
inspirational”.

Produced
by
Swargachitra,

CBI

The
Brain

comes
after
Mammootty’s
biggest
hit
ever
‘Bheeshma
Parvam’
which
released
recently
and
his
upcoming
OTT
Premiere
debut
in
‘Puzhu’.
