Gautham was selected to play the lead role along with Meghana Raj by director Vinayan in his ghost flick Yakshiyum Njanum, an Onam release of 2010.[5][6][7][8] The success of the film prompted Vinayan to offer another lead role to Gautham in Raghuvinte Swantham Rasiya, a 2011 release.[9] Gautham also played important role in Again Kasargod Khader Bhai, the sequel of Kasarkode Khaderbai directed by Thulasidas.[10]

After a small break, Gautham made his Tamil language debut with Manal Naharam directed by Oru Thalai Ragam Shankar,[11] released in 2015. The film won him good reviews[12][13][14] as an actor, moreover the film's Malayalam version was released as Sand City[15] earning critical recognition.

In 2016, Gautham had a Malayalam release Poyi Maranju Parayaathe co-starring Vimala Raman and late Kalabhavan Mani. The film was earlier known as Amazon Turning Point.[16][17][18]
