One of the best among the contemporary actors, Kay Kay Menon is a powerhouse of acting. Born as Krishnakumar Menon in Kerala, he started his career in the field of advertisement. The acting bug bit him and soon he moved into the theatres. One of his earliest theatrical roles was against the veteran thespian Naseeruddin Shah, in the much-acclaimed play ‘Mahatma vs Gandhi’. Playing Harilal Gandhi, the wayward son of Mahatma Gandhi, his portrayal was much appreciated by the audience. Later he found fame in the titular role in the mini tv series ‘Pradhan Mantri’ on the Zee network. His first break in the big screen came in the form of a small role in Saeed Mirza’s Naseem, a drama based on the events after the demolition of Babri Masjid. But it was Ram Gopal Verma’s gangster saga ‘Sarkar’ which brought him into the limelight. Brooding looks, unconventional style of acting and an acute skill of impersonating the man behind the character put him in a different league than others.
Over the years, Kay Kay Menon has enthralled the audience with his various roles on screen. Here’s the list of top Kay Kay Menon films, from his enviable list of performances. You can watch some of these Kay Kay Menon movies on Netflix.
12. The Stoneman Murders (2008)
Based on the infamous murders of the eighties, in the suburbs of-then what was known as Bombay, ‘The Stoneman Murders’ is part fiction, part reality. Kay Kay Menon plays a suspended police officer Sanjay, who’s been entrusted with the investigation while the rest of the police force suspects him to be the killer. The movie suffers due to an incoherent screenplay and a haphazard ending, not being able to tie the loose ends. In a not so great film, Kay Kay gives a bravura performance.
