Kozhikode, March 28 :  T. Damodaran, known for scripting successful films like "Angaadi", "Ee Nadu" and " Avanazhi", died Wednesday at his residence here, according to family sources. He was 77.

He is survived by three daughters, including Deedi Damodaran, an upcoming scriptwriter.

In a career spanning more than three decades, he scripted close to 50 Malayalam films.

He is billed to have created the current superstars of Malayalam cinema - Mammootty, Mohanlal and Suresh Gopi. The trio, to a large extent, owes their current status to Damodaran's scripts. He teamed up with master director I.V. Sasi and Priyadarshan in the 1980s and 1990s to write a string of successes for the three.

Damodaran and Sasi also teamed up to produce hit films like "Angadi", "Eee Nadu", "Vartha", " Avanazhi", "Inspector Balram", "1921", "Adimakal Udamakal", and "Balram vs. Taradas".

He and Priyadarshan produced hit movies like "Aryan", "Advaitham", "Abhimanyu", and "Kala Pani".

Damodaran started his career as a physical education teacher at a school here before starting his career as a scriptwriter for numerous Malayalam dramas and then moving into the film industry.
