P. V. Jagadish Kumar (born June 12, 1955), popularly known as Jagadish, is an Indian film actor and screenwriter best known for his comic performances in Malayalam cinema. He became popular through performances in films such as In Harihar Nagar, Godfather, Mukhachitram, Welcome to Kodaikanal, Thiruthalvaadi, Mantrikacheppu, and Hitler.[1]

A post graduate M.Com. rank holder, Jagadish's transition from a bank officer to a college lecturer and to a film actor was a smooth one. He was a lead actor in a number of movies during the 1990s, although he mostly does character roles.

Early life[edit]

Jagadish was born to K. Parameshwaran Nair and P. Bhasurangi Amma on 12 June 1955 in Chenkal, Neyyattinkara, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India.[2] He had his primary education from Government Model Boys Higher Secondary School, Thiruvananthapuram.[3] Jagadish graduated with a Master of Commerce from Mar Ivanios College, Nalanchira, Trivandrum under the University of kerala with first rank.[4] He became an officer with Federal bank and Later he became a lecturer in M.G. College, Thiruvananthapuram-a college run by NSS. He had dreams of becoming a film actor, so he took a long leave from his job to try his luck in films.

Career[edit]

Jagadish debuted in films with a minor role in My Dear Kuttichathan (1984), which was India's first 3-D film.[5] Jagadish became an established actor with his roles in Mutharamkunnu P.O. (1985), Nandi Veendum Varika (1986), Manivathoorile Aayiram Sivarathrikal (1987) and Vandanam (1989). In his early career, Jagadish wrote stories and screenplays for a few films including Mazha Peyyunnu Maddalam Kottunnu (1986) (story), Manivathoorile Aayiram Sivarathrikal (1987) (dialogue) and Adhipan (1989) (screenplay).[4] Jagadish's performance as Appukkuttan in In Harihar Nagar (1990), directed by Siddique-Lal was highly acclaimed. Jagadish proved himself again with terrific comic timing[citation needed] with his role as "Mayeen kutty" in Godfather (1991), which also was directed by the same director duo.[4] With the success of the above movies, Jagadish became one of the most popular actor in the early to mid-1990s.[citation needed] He acted in the leading role in more than 30 low-budget films some of which were successes in box office. He acted in family-oriented movies Sthree dhanam, Bharya, Ponnaranthottathe Rajavu, Mr and Mrs. He also acted in slapstick comedies Pavam IA Ivachan, Kunukkitta Kozhi etc. Most of the movies he shared the hero role with the likes of Mukesh and Siddique. In his prime also, he acted in supporting roles with Mammootty, Mohanlal and Jayaram. The roles in Butter flies, Minnaminunginum Minnukettu and Jackpot earned loud applause from the audience.[citation needed]

In late 1990s and 2000s, Jagadish failed to reinvent himself as an actor and continued doing the same kind of roles as his younger days which did not go well with the audience. Also new generation of comedy actors were aplenty. He did a lot of character roles in big movies and also started being the chief judge for a comedy programme Vodafone Comedy Stars in Asianet. He played anchor role in some award functions also.[citation needed]

Jagadish has established the image of the comic hero who evokes spontaneous laughter with his own brand of humour. From comedy roles, Jagadish has moved on to important roles that have made him dear to the audience. He is one of the few performers who are compatible both in front of the camera and on the stage in front of full audience.[6] He comes alive on stage with his self-mocking stances and improvised dialogues.[citation needed]

Jagadish again got a break in his career in 2009 again with his role of Appukkuttan in Harihar Nagar 2, a sequel to In Harihar Nagar. The film went on to become a hit and Jagdish's Appukkuttan was again the star of the plot. This proved to be vital for Jagdish as he gets another opportunity as hero in another movie, Decent Parties. He is also planning to direct a movie with Mammootty in lead role.[citation needed]

Family[edit]

Jagadish is married to P. Rama, a forensic professor in the Medical College, Thiruvananthapuram. The couple have 2 daughters.[7]
