Birthday: 1977

An award-winning celebrity who belongs to the South-Indian cinematic universe, Ranjan Abraham is known for his work in many highly acclaimed Malayalam films. Having edited over a hundred Malayalam movies, several of his works have won numerous awards at the national level. The respected filmmaker has thousands of fans all across Kerala as well as most of the South-India. Born in 1977, Thuruppugalaan, Kerala, India he has played the role of producer & director on more than a few occasions. He has been an active member of the Malayalam film industry since 1999.

In a career that has spanned almost two decades, notable awards of the filmmaker include Kerala State Film Award for Best Editor, Asianet Film Award for Best Editing, etc. Other achievements of the director include Kerala State Film Award for Best Editor for ‘CID Moosa’ in 2003. In the same year, he received the Asianet Film Award for Best Editing for the same film. He went on to win the same award on 3 separate occasions; in 2005, for ‘ Classmates’ in 2006 & for ‘ Veruthe Oru Bharya’ in 2008. His debut came in a 1995 movie ‘Maravathoorkanavu’ alongside Lal Jose. His next work was in 1999 flick ‘English Medium,’ spearheaded by Pradeep Choke & starring megastars of today Mukesh & Sreenivasan.

Unable to achieve the much- desired fame he wanted in his early years, the editor struggled during the early 2000s. With movies like ‘Dreamz,’ ‘Kharaaksharangal,’ ‘Mazhameghapraavakul,’ ‘Ee Parakkumthalika,’ ‘Manassil Oru Manjuthulli’ & ‘Raavanaprabhu,’ he did well but did not stand out in the highly competitive field of editing. The second half of the 2000s saw him achieve all that he had set out to conquer. Receiving a plethora of awards, works like ‘ Rock n Roll,’ ‘ Mulla,’ ‘One Way Ticket,’ ‘ Twenty 20,’ ‘Samastha Keralam,’ ‘Kadha Parayambol’ & ‘Parunthu,’ the director cum editor was roped in for high-budget movies, he was able to execute his hard-work & finesse in a better way.

The editor has never let anyone bother about the technicalities of editing in his films. His ability to shape-up up & edit lapses specialise into a smooth transition, giving the viewer an experience like never before. He has made the country realise that editing is an art, not a technical job. In an age of movies overdosed with visual effects, he gives us a taste of vintage editing; the way it was meant to be. Hailed as number one in his field in Malluwood, he remains one of the coolest, most grounded & simple-hearted people in the industry.

His views on the art form he wishes to be unadulterated are truly enthralling, & many celebrities have gone on to rave about their enlightening sessions with Abraham. A regular attendee & recipient of prizes in award functions, he is always there to give a moral boost to his young acquaintances. Abraham currently lives with his family in Kerala. With a cluster of movies lined his way, the editor is all set to enthral the audience in the years to come.
