Madhavan in the lead), Nothing But Life (English, shot in Las Vegas) and the eminent actor Bharath Gopi in the film Yamanam ( the film won National Award in 1991). He turned actor in Kashmeeram.

He won the Critic's Award for Best Debutante actor for his role in the film Kashmeeram and the second best actor for his role of Hari in the series on MT Kathakal, called Kazhcha, telecast on Amritha TV.

Thalappavu is his big screen directorial debut and the film received the Kerala State Best Debutante Director Award and various organisations awards. Madhupal has ventured more and more into the world of letters and published seven collections of short stories. Social activities also keep him occupied.
