Did You Know?
In the whole of my career, some ten-twenty characters might have really satisfied me. One such character I still remember is Achuvettan of Achuvettante Veedu
(1987)...Achuvettan's agony, the agony of a government servant belonging to a middle class family with two daughters was quite understandable to me.
While in college, he performed in dramas along with Fazil
and some others. When they won first prize in a competition, Kavalam Narayana Panicker
, who was judging the event, invited them to join his experimental theater group. Venu credits that experience with acquiring an aesthetic perspective and the ability to view and enjoy all art forms, irrespective of its language and origin.
