Sukumaran was a popular actor in Malayalam cinema from the early 70s to the mid 90s. Sukumaran's portrayal of an 'angry young man' in many films gave him a huge fan fare.

Sukumaran was born at Edappal, Kerala as the elder son of Parameshwaran Nair and Subhadramma. He had a brother and two sisters. Sukumaran concentrated on his studies in the earlier days. He earned a job as a college lecturer after completing his Masters degree.

Sukaumaran won the Kerala State Film Award for Best Actor in 1978 for his role in Bandhanam. Sukumaran married fellow actress Mallika Sukumaran who was earlier married to Jagathy Sreekumar. They have two sons, both malayalam filmstars in their own right: Indrajith Sukumaran and Prithviraj Sukumaran.

His last film was Shibiram, directed by T.S. Suresh Babu. This gifted actor breathed his last on 16 June 1997.
