Career

Fresh with the play's commercial and critical success, Lohithadas was introduced to K G George by actor Thilakan It did not help Lohithadas to start a career in Malayalam cinema But it was K G George who gave the basic core idea of the story, later which was developed by Lohithadas to make the film Kireedam Later, Thilakan introduced Lohithadas to director Sibi Malayil when Sibi was searching for a good writer for his films Thus Lohi's first movie screenplay Thaniavarthanam was directed by Malayil and became a success Together, Sibi Malayil and Lohithadas would later produce several memorable Malayalam movies His screenplay works for Sibi Malayil are Thaniyavarthanam 1987, Dasharatham 1989, Kireedam 1989, His Highness Abdullah 1990, Bharatham 1990, Kamaladalam 1992, and Chenkol 1993 Other works include Veendum Chila Veettukaryangal 1999,Sasneham 1990 for Sathyan Anthikkad and Amaram,venkalam1991 for Bharathan
