Prathapachandran could only do school education till 9th standard. During his school days, he has won a lot of prizes for fancy dress and other competitions.

His first movie was Viyarppinte Vila in 1962, in which he acted as a man in his 70s. After that he did some insignificant roles in a few other movies and returned to Kollam in disappointment and started acting in stage for the troupe Kalidasa Kalkendara.

He returned to movies a while later. His comeback movie was Adi Sankaracharyar. After that he became active in movies and acted in over 400 movies in his career that spanned four decades.
