C rated it it was amazing Well it was a beautiful read- than his artistic crafts of movies in Malayalam- it was this collection of writings for the first time that etched into my mind- the feudalistic,patriarchal, conscientious burdened Malayalee writer. His imagery is encapsulating, his words sharp and his emotions poetic and charged with male sexuality. It despised me, then amazed me and then somewhere also showed me a true Malayalee male-perception of his world.

After early schooling at Muthukulam, he studied at M. College and University College Trivandrum , graduating with a B. He then joined All India Radio , Trichur , starting as a programme announcer, and later settled at Poojappura, Trivandrum ; he would remain at All India Radio until when his involvement in films prompted him to retire voluntarily. Some of them are considered as among the best in Malayalam literature , his first novel Nakshathrangale Kaaval Only stars guarding won the Kerala Sahithya Academy award He later began to direct films based on his screenplays, beginning with Peruvazhiyambalam The Street as a Choultry , which are greatly popular among the common people as well as intellectuals and film critics, while maintaining richness in artistic and thematic originality and excellence with commercial appeal.
His films explore the feature of the landscape naturally and easily. Padmarajan was a great experimenter who explored all walks of life in his works. Forbidden love and characters that strive to rise above the limitations of middle-class Malayali society of the seventies and eighties is a recurring theme in many of his greatest works. Many of his films bear the mark of his romanticism. He is celebrated for his possibly unparalleled attention to detail in his screenplays.
Some of his scripts are arguably the smoothest narratives ever penned in the Malayalam language. They are also ample proof for his keen observation, acute perception, and astute portrayal of human relationships and emotions. Many of his films have stunning and haunting climaxes, most of them not commonly portrayed in Malayalam movies.
His characters were portrayed with great sensitivity and intensity on the screen and many of the scenes are generously sprinkled with humour. The dialogues of characters are quite natural, in the language of the common man, and yet have a subtle lyrical quality.
Indeed, a just cause may be made that his directorial merit flowed easily from his exquisitely crafted screenplays: he never directed a film based on a script written by someone else unlike other Malayalam film directors of comparable stature, say, Bharathan and K. George , and rarely adapted his script from a story not his own. Consequently, he had an unusually intimate knowledge of the characters in his films in combination with his mastery of the script. Association with Bharathan[ edit ] Together with Bharathan and K.
George , he successfully laid the foundation for a school of Malayalam cinema that strove to tread a middle ground by striking a fine balance between intellectual and commercial appeal, without sacrificing the strong points of either approach; this was accomplished by portraying brilliant stories with "next door" men and women as characters, steering clear of artificial characters, stereotypes and pedantic inclinations allegedly typical of critically acclaimed films.
The term "Parallel film" is usually used to describe his style of film making. Along with Bharathan, he displayed mastery in handling sexuality on the screen, hitherto less known in Malayalam cinema. Association with actors[ edit ] He was quite adept in spotting talent, and introduced many fresh faces who would later make their mark in Indian cinema, including Ashokan Peruvazhiyambalam , Rasheed Oridathoru Phayalvaan , Rahman Koodevide , Jayaram Aparan , Ramachandran Novemberinte Nashtam , Ajayan Moonnam Pakkam.
His association with Mohanlal was well noted especially because their films broke the conventional concepts prevailing during that time. He also aided in establishing, to a fair degree, the fame of other directors such as Bharathan , I. Sasi , and Mohan , through his association with them; his collaboration with Bharathan as a scriptwriter is considered to have produced remarkable works in Malayalam cinema.
Radhalakshmi was his colleague at AIR before their marriage in RadhaLakshmi has written her reminiscences about him in her book Padmarajan entaey Gandharvan Padmarajan, my celestial lover. Their son, P. Ananthapadmanabhan, is a writer.

The cause of death was a massive cardiac arrest.
