The daughter of cinematographer K. U. Mohanan, Malavika made her acting debut with the romantic drama Pattam Pole (2013) opposite Dulquer Salmaan. Following a series of leadership roles in Malayalam and Kannada films, she won critical acclaim after appearing in Majid Majidi’s drama film, Beyond the Clouds (2017), portraying a dweller of Mumbai’s dhobi ghat area.

Malavika’s breakthrough as an actress came through her role as Tara, a poor girl from Mumbai’s dhobi ghat area, in Majid Majidi’s drama film, Beyond the Clouds (2017). Following her successful audition, Majidi selected her ahead of renowned actresses Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut for the role, which saw her portray the older sister of debutant Ishaan Khatter.

She expressed her delight at working with Majidi so early in her career, especially considering that she regularly had to study and write essays on his films during her undergraduate course. For the film, Mohanan lost eight kilograms in fifteen days to film for a jail sequence and opted not to wash her hair for several days on end to get the look of the slum dweller correct. The film was screened across several international festivals, before being released worldwide in April 2018. Mohanan won positive reviews for her portrayal, with Filmfare’s critic stating “Malavika Mohanan is a natural in front of the camera”. A reviewer from The Times of India stated she was “captivating in her honest portrayal” and “skillfully walks the fine line between passionate and melodramatic”, while The Hollywood Reporter called her “solid”.

In mid-2018, she signed on to appear in a role in Karthik Subbaraj’s Petta (2019), which would feature her alongside an ensemble cast including Rajinikanth, Vijay Sethupathi, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. For the film, which marked her first project in the Tamil language, Mohanan hired a Tamil-speaking tutor to help her practice her lines. She then went on to appear in the Tamil action thriller film Master (2021) alongside Vijay, in which she played the role of Charulatha, a college lecturer. It became the highest-grossing film in her career.

Mohanan has signed on to appear in Maaran directed by Karthick Naren opposite Dhanush and in the Hindi film Yudhra opposite Siddhant Chaturvedi. The latter is scheduled to release in Summer 2022.
