Sudheesh got much accolades for the film 'Aadharam' which was directed by 'George Kithu'.It was a beautiful
film which had a nice story and presented well.Murali,Geetha,Sukumari,Janardhanan etc acted in that film in
which Sudheesh acted in the role as 'Ramesan' the younger brother of 'Sethulakshmi', Geetha's character.

handled by Sudheesh.

friend of the hero role of Boban Kunchacko.As a good helpful friend he was nice in that picture.

secrets of his brother Sudheesh was blaming him unnecessarily and causing so much problems to him.

and Shobhana was a block buster film.
Sudheesh is capable of acting comedy type roles and in several films he has proved that ability. Such a role was that in the film  'Sreekrishna Purathe Nakshatra Thilakkam'.That film was a comedy film
in which 'Nagma' was the heroine.In the award winning film of Sreenivasan 'Chinthavishtayaya Shyamala'
