Anil has been active in the Malayalam film industry from 1989. He was instrumental in directing more than 31 films in Malayalam language. Anil, together with Babu Narayanan under the name Anil Babu, directed more than 20 Malayalam movies.[1] According to him: "Director is responsible for overseeing creative aspects of a film under the overall control of the producer. Together with the producers, director develops a vision for a film. Once this vision is developed, it is then the director's job to carry out the vision and decide how the film should look." His involvement for turning the script into a sequence of shots and his decision on what tone it should have and what an audience should gain from the cinematic experience is always seen in the final product. His close association with the Cinematographer and set designer from the beginning helps to decide on the camera angles, lens effects and lighting effectively. He is also engaged in teaching a "visual communication" course in various colleges in Kerala. He has also been honoured internationally in United States, Singapore and Muscat by various Malayalee Federations.[citation needed].

Personal life[edit]

Anil got married to national award-winning actress Kalpana in 1998 and later divorced in 2012. Their only daughter Sreemayi lived with Kalpana, until Kalpana's death on 25 January 2016.
