Sathyan Anthikkad
Sathyan was born in 1954 January 3 in Anthikkad, Thrissur, Kerala. He was born to M.V. Krishnan and M.K. Kalyani.Sathyan made his Maiden appearance in Malayalam film industry in 1973 as Assistant Director in Rekha Cine Arts. He turned to writing lyrics and penned about 100 popular malayalam film songs.
Though he was successful as a lyricist, his wish was to become a director. To fulfil that, he became the Assistant director to Dr. Balakrishnan. Sathyan kickstarted his film direction with Kurukkante Kalyanam in 1982 and there was no turning back. He teamed-up with Sreenivasan and made some of the most memorable films in Malayalam film history, with Sreenivasan as the screenwriter. Thalayanamanthram, Nadodikkattu and Sandesam are some of the films born from the team, with socially relevant matters in a comic touch. Sathyan made two novels into films:Appu starring Mohanlal which was a film adaptation of V. K. N.'s novel and Irattakkuttikalude Achan starring Jayaram and Manju Warrier, which was an adaptation of C. V. Balakrishnan's novel. Off late, he has ventured into screnwriting also and made films like Rasathanthram and Vinodayathara with credits of story, dialogues, screenplay and direction. He is a pet of family filmgoers because of his selection of plots in family-life background having social relevance and because of his comedic tastes. He has often made maestro Ilayaraja to set scores for his films. They teamed-up in films like Achuvinte Amma, Rasathanthram and Vinodayathara, and many of the tracks from the albums were chartbusters. Sathyan has used Jayaram or Mohanlal to play protagonists in most of his films.
