2005 was a very good year for Saikumar in which he acted in Rajamanikyam, Mammootty's mega-hit where he played an elder man. This made the directors rethink his range of characters. In Suresh Gopi's comeback film Bharathchandran I.P.S., he played the villain. He described the role as an anti-hero not a villain, since he leads story in the first 45 minutes until Suresh Gopi appears. He also played the supporting role as DYSP Pothen in the Suresh Gopi hit The Tiger. He lent his voice for Sathyaraj in Aagathan & also dubbed for Thiagarajan in Thilakkam. In 2007, he won accolades for his performance as a Kathakali artist and the father of a highly talented but ailing son in Anandabhairavi. Director Vinayan described him as talented as Mohanlal which is the best compliment for his acting abilities.
