Meanwhile, Jeethu developed the one-line plot of Detective.

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.
Jeethu’s fourth movie Memories, a suspense thriller, was released in 2013 which did well in box office.
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, and the first Malayalam film to cross ₹50 crore mark at the box office.
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.
