Most critics often consider Jayan's main hero role in Sharapancharam, Angadi, Venalil Oru Mazha and Puthiya Velicham to be his best. His most popular character may be the educated labourer in "Angadi". The sage's role played by him in "Etho Oru Swapnam" was well appreciated by critics and would easily feature among his memorable roles. The supporting role in
, Thacholi Ambu, the villainous ranger in Panchami and the rapist in Kanthavalayam are also critically acclaimed characters. Some other popular roles were in films like "Ithikkara Pakki", "Mamangam", "Puthiya Velicham", "Karimpana", "Ariyapedatha Rahasiyam", "Chaakara" and "Kazhukan". While acknowledging his undisputed popularity as a commercial superstar that has never faded over time, general critical opinion on his skills as an actor is divided. While there are criticisms from some corners that he depended more on his features like catching physique, base voice, personal charisma, unique style and mannerisms to garner attention, many others rate him as a great actor who developed his own unique style to leave a lasting impression on every single role he took up.
Jayan acted in several multistar movies mostly with Prem Nazir. The duo acted in films like "Nayattu, Love in Singapore, Chandrahasam, Thacholi Ambu,
, Palattu Kunjikkannan, Mamangam, Prabhu" etc. all of which were top grossers at the box office. He also acted with other popular actors of the time like Soman, Sukumaran and Madhu in many films.

But later films in the beginning of 1980 relied heavily on Jayan's drawing power as an action hero and placed him as the central character. In 1980, the duo jayan and Prem Nazir were cast in "Ariyapedatha Rahasiyam" by P. Venu, that showcased the famous fight scene in Malayalam cinema. Prem Nazir agreed to play a supporting role in "Nayattu" very unlikely for a superstar of those times. He had agreed to do this as a token of friendship with Jayan and the director Sreekumaran Thamby.The duo had many actions films together like 'irumbazhikal" "love in Singapore" etc. where the box office draw was huge.
