He had expressed all faces of life through his various characters. But his best was his performance in Chemmeen. This film directed by Ramu Kariat, who got Presidents golden medal for Chemmeen. It was based on Thakazhi's novel . The tragic character Pareekkutty was safe in the hands of Madhu. He expressed all nuances of this delicate character smoothly. Pareekkutty brought a big break in his acting career. It was a habit of Malayali to render the dialogues of Pareekkutty during that period.

Later he distinguished himself as producer, director and storywriter.The screen name of Madhu was given by Thikkurissi Sukumaran Nair, another famous Malayalam actor. In an acting career spanning four decades, Madhu acted in over 300 films.[4] But initial years were of struggle as Madhu entered Malayalam Cinema while Prem Nazir and Sathyan, two great stars, were ruling the roost. Later Madhu captured his own place. Later he was lucky to pursue his profession with many generations like Sukumaran-Soman, Mammooty-Mohanlal, Dileep, Jayaram.

Though he was a well-known hero he always was simple and honest in life. Even though he was a big star in commercial film, he was generous enough to act in parallel movies. He acted in Adoor Gopalakrishnan's Swayamvaram, P. N. Menon's Olavum TheeravumOLAVUM THEERAVUM etc. Madhu's directorial venture PRIYA was a good trendsetter in Malayalam.
