John Paul Puthusery, sometimes known as Puthussery, usually simply referred to as John Paul, (born 29 October 1950) is a writer who has penned screenplays for nearly 100 Malayalam movies. He is a guest faculty in many colleges.

Early life[edit]

In his early life he was active in film societies and freelance journalism. He used to write screenplays for short movies and adshorts at that time. In 1972 he joined Canara Bank and when he became busy in films, in 1983, he resigned the job and fully focused on movies.

Career[edit]

Puthusery was instrumental in bringing Bharathan behind the camera as a director in the mainstream focus. Chamaram, Ilakkangal, Palangal, Rachana, Arorumariyathe, Avidathe Pole Ivideyum, Ormakkayi, Sandhya Mayangum Neram, Kattathe Kilikkoodu, Kathodu Kathoram, and Utsavapittennu are some of his major works.

The awards given to him include the Nana Gallop poll award for the best screenplay writer, Kerala film critics association award, and the State award for the best film book for M.T. Oru Anuyathra. He was the producer of the movie Oru Cherupunchiri directed by M.T. Vasudevan Nair, which has won state, national and international awards.

John Paul was the founder general secretary for MACTA, an association for film technicians.
