James was a Malayalam film actor who used to appear in small roles and was in this career  from a long period.He was not longing
to come to the forefront or tried to grab more important roles.He was satisfied with the type of roles given to him.Since that was his policy he had acted in so many films but yet the viewers were not familiar with his name.

        He was there in the field from 1985 itself and in the movie 'Onningu vannengil' directed by Joshi he had a
role.It was a film in which Mammootty,Nadia,Lizy,Sankar,Lalu Alex,Jagathy etc acted.
In 1998 Lal Jose came up with his directional debut film 'Oru Maravathur Kanavu' in which Mammootty,Biju Menon,Mohini,Divya Unni,Sukumari,Nedumudi Venu etc were in the cast.The film was a comedy drama
and was a success.James acted in a notable role in that film.
2002 film 'Meesa Madhavan'  was a blockbuster super hit film of Lal Jose.In that film Meesa Madhavan's title role was handled by Dileep.Dileep was in love with Rugmini (Kavya Madhavan) who was the daughter of Bhageeradhan Pillai,(Jagathy) a
cunning man who was a money lender.He had illegal relationship with a neighborhood married woman whose
husband was a Military person.It was 'James' who handled that role.Comparatively it was a well noted role
and a comedy scene was also in the film.The Military man when visiting a nearby temple with his wife  hearing the sound of
crackers he suddenly fell on the ground and was  looking around in vigil.When his wife asked him what he was doing
he replied that for one moment he thought that he was at the military camp and thought the sound of cracker as
enemy's gun shot.
There were Dileep's several blackmailing scenes in the picture in which he says to Bhagaeeradhan Pillai that he
would reveal the affair between Bageeradhan Pillai and Military Man's wife.
Hello My Dear Wrong number,Witness,Brahma Rakshas,Pavam Pavam Raja Kumaran,Vietnam Colony,
Mele Parambil Aanveedu,Kaikudanna Nilavu,Kalikkalam etc are some of the films he had acted.
James was a sincere actor who served   the Malayalam film arena  for several years.May his soul rest in Peace.
