However, he did very small roles on screen.
Soon, Indrans started getting fresh assignments from well-known directors like Padmarajan, Venu Nagavally, Shaji N. Karun, Sibi Malayil and K. Madhu. CID Unni Krishnan was a turning point in his career as an actor. His brand of comedy clicked among the audiences and he went on to become one of the mainstream comedians in Kerala. Since then, he is busy till date.

He created his own style in cinema and never replicated the comedy of the legendary Adoor Bhasi, Bahadoor, Jagathi Sreekumar or Innocent. Renowned directors Adoor Gopalakrishnan and T.V. Chandran too offered him roles.
