Jeethu Joseph started as an assistant director to Jayaraj in the film Bheebhathsam. After that, he got a chance to direct a film starring Dileep but it did not materialized and he was back where he started. Meanwhile, Jeethu developed the one-line plot of Detective. But after failing to find any producers, his mother Leelamma Josesh offered to co-produce the film, which became his debut directorial. A month into the project, a producer evinced interest and took on the production. Detective was released in 2007. The film fared well at the box-office.

His next film Mummy & Me was a success at the box-office. Mummy and Me, although it took close to three years in the making, marked a turning point in his career as director. "My first film was easy compared to the struggle I had to go through for my second, Mummy and Me." There were offers to make films like Detective, but Jeethu declined. "I wanted to do a different film" It was for this reason that, though he had one line scripts of Mummy and Me and Memories ready in 2008, he chose to make Mummy and Me.

His third film My Boss was also a success in theatres. This film was a scene-by-scene copy of the Hollywood film The Proposal (2009). Jeethu's fourth movie Memories, a suspense thriller, was released in 2013 which did well in box office.

Post-Drishyam (2013–present)

Towards the end of 2013, the drama-thriller Drishyam starring Mohanlal was released, which was well received critically and commercially. It was the highest-grossing Malayalam film, until 2016. Drishyam was remade in Tamil by Jeethu with Kamal Haasan enacting Mohanlal's role. It was also remade to Telugu, Kannada and Hindi by other directors. Jeethu then directed Dileep-starrer Life of Josutty. Jeethu has announced films with Prithviraj and Meera Jasmine.
