Known for many of his hit songs, Vineeth Sreenivasan was never acknowledged for his directorial debut with the movie Malarvaadi Arts Club (2010) or for Thira (2013). The positive response for Thattathin Marayathu (2012) made him one of the hit filmmakers in the industry as the movie became one of the highest-grossing films of that year. More than Vineeth, Thattathin Marayathu benefitted Nivin and even earned him the title of Malayali’s favourite romantic hero.

Thattathin Marayathu told the story of an unconventional romance between a Nair boy and a Muslim girl who hails from a conservative family. The movie thrilled the audiences with a novel approach to film-making and storytelling; and is still one of the favourites, for many youngsters.

Thattathin Marayathu can be rightfully considered as Nivin’s break in the industry as the young actor has been seen as the lead in several other hits since then. Nivin created a mark for himself in the industry with his performance in the movie and went on to create hits like Hey Jude, Moothon, Jacobinte Swargarajyam and 1984. Considered as one of the most versatile actors from the industry, Nivin never fails to amaze us with his stellar on-screen presence.
