The 44-year-old was largely responsible for giving actor Fahadh Faasil the “raw common man look” in Maheshinte Prathikaaram, Kumbalangi Nights and Joji. His camerawork in Ee.Ma.Yau, Sudani From Nigeria, Anjam Pathiraa and Nayattu has been ­appreciated and noticed widely, so much so that ­offers from the Hindi film industry are pouring in. He tells Sreedhar Pillai what goes behind the lens, technically and cerebrally.

The new age Malayalam cinema, with its realistic characters and ­relatable storyline, has struck a chord with theatre and OTT ­audiences across the globe.
