P. V. Jagadish Kumar (born 12 June 1955), popularly known as Jagadish, is an Indian film actor and screenwriter. He has starred in over 300 Malayalam films. He's best known for his comic performances.

Jagadish made his acting debut with the film My Dear Kuttichathan (1984) which is India's first 3D film. He got a big break with his role as Appukuttan in Siddique-Lal's In Harihar Nagar (1990). He was a lead actor in a number of films during the 1990s, though he now mostly does supporting roles. His notable films include Godfather (1991), Mimics Parade (1991), Welcome to Kodaikanal (1992), Thiruthalvaadi (1992), Priyapetta Kukku (1992), Mr & Mrs (1992), Pandu Pandoru Rajakumari (1992), Kunukkitta Kozhi (1992), Kasarkode Khaderbai (1992), Kallan Kappalil Thanne (1992), Grihaprevesam (1992), Sthreedhanam (1993), Sthalathe Pradhana Payyans (1993), Injakkadan Mathai & Sons (1993), Simhavalan Menon (1995), Mimics Super 1000 (1996), and Hitler (1996). He has written a few scripts as well, most notably Adhipan (1989).[1]

Jagadish is a postgraduate M.Com. rank-holder. He transitioned from a bank officer to a college lecturer and to a film actor within a short time. In 2016, Jagadish entered into politics using his star value to compete against his colleague and former state minister K. B. Ganesh Kumar for Member of the Legislative Assembly post of the Pathanapuram constituency under the banner of the Kerala Congress (B) . However, he lost in the elections.

Early life[edit]

Jagadish was born as he fifth son among six children to K. Parameshwaran Nair and P. Bhasurangi Amma on 12 June 1955 in Chenkal, Neyyattinkara, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India. His father was school teacher and mother was a house wife. He has two elder brothers Harikumar, Ravikumar and a younger brother, Surendran and two elder sisters Raji and Indira.[2][3] He had his primary education from Government Model Boys Higher Secondary School, Thiruvananthapuram.[4] He did bachelors in commerce from Government Arts College, Thiruvananthapuram.[5] Jagadish post graduated with a Master of Commerce from Mar Ivanios College, Nalanchira, Trivandrum under the University of Kerala with first rank.[6] 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 and ventured his luck in films.

Family[edit]

Jagadish is married to Dr. P. Rama, a forensic professor in the Medical College, Thiruvananthapuram. The couple have 2 daughters, both now married and having their own children.[7][8] They are settled at Kaladi, Karamana, Thiruvananthapuram.

Career[edit]

Jagadish debuted in films with a minor role in My Dear Kuttichathan (1984), which was India's first 3-D film.[9] 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).[6] 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 was directed by the same director duo.[6] 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 Butterflies, Minnaminunginum Minnukettu and Jackpot earned loud applause from the audience.[citation needed]

In 1990s and 2000s, Jagadish failed to reinvent himself as a strong 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 a plenty. He later came on stage shows conducted in foreign countries with his self-mocking stances and improvised dialogues.[citation needed]

Jagadish again got a break in his career in 2009 with his reappearance as "Appukkuttan" in Harihar Nagar 2, a sequel to In Harihar Nagar. The film went on to become a hit. This proved to be vital for Jagdish as he got an another opportunity as hero in another movie, Decent Parties. Jagadish was established as a comedian and light-hearted hero who evokes spontaneous laughter with a certain whimsical oddity this was his humour quotient.[citation needed]

Later Jagadish played roles that would distinguish himself from his earlier stereotyped comedy roles, this has cost him dearly with the audience. In 2010 he scripted for the film April Fool which was literally copied from Dinner for Schmucks, the poor scripting resulted in failure. After a hiatus He came alive through television programs as a chief judge for a comedy programme Vodafone Comedy Stars in Asianet and anchored in channel's organized award functions.[citation needed]. His policing changed the pattern of existed comedy through media into tight politically correct skits with light humor and morals. This screen presence brought him back more roles in big movies and His compatibility as superstar both in front of the camera and on the TV stage was well praised by Channels. [10] He revealed in an interview as his fellow generation of actors where turning into production, he also is planning to direct a movie with Mammootty in lead role.[citation needed]
