These are talented actors but we wish they'd stop being so predictable in every film.

You see them many times. At the same place, in the same tone, with the same backstory. No, they aren’t stalking you, but they aren’t stalking good roles either. Here’s a list of Malayalam actors who need to stop getting typecast...like, now.

Joy Mathew: With every one of his characters speaking in the same tone, he is always the friendly neighbourhood uncle, or the father or the sakhavu or the priest. A smart director may still be able to get him out of that rut.

Renji Panicker: His acting career started of with a lot of promise, especially as the cool dad from Ohm Shanthi Oshaana but then they started putting him in gruff, heavy-duty roles and he got stuck in that bracket. Now it seems that only senior cop/politician, a well-meaning friend/ father role are coming his way.

Hareesh Perumanna: Once you are boxed into the slot of a comedy actor, no matter the variations or improvisations you bring, you will always be a comedy actor. Unless you do what Suraj Venjaramoodu did and just step out of that comfort zone. Hareesh Perumanna urgently needs to give this a thought.

Seema G Nair: The token impoverished mother. In every single film.

Santhosh Keezhattoor: Be it any genre, any adaptation, any remake, rest assured Santhosh Keezhattoor will be either victimised, killed or the one-note sly villain. Out of the 23 odd films he has done, Keezhattoor has been typecast to the point where you can predict the mishap that is going to follow, the minute he appears on screen.

Jinu Joseph: An Amal Neerad regular, he is forever the rich and brash business tycoon/real estate dealer/sophisticated beach boy/any such combination of a devious villain. Always in suits or thick leather jackets and Rayban shades, his characters seldom look happy.

Anjali Aneesh Upasana: Have there been instances in any film where she has a) not played an older actor’s mom or sister, b) not looked neglected and dehydrated in every frame and c) given a wane hopeless smile? Just asking.

Hareesh Peradi: Yes, he is a fine actor who seems to be having the time of his life in Malayalam and Tamil film industries. And yes, he is also this don/corrupt businessman/politician in every film!
