The late 80’s and the early 90’s, known as the Golden Age of Malayalam cinema, produced some of the most creative and diverse Malayalam movies and enabled Mohanlal establish himself as one of the most talented actors in the country. He is critically acclaimed for his ability to get into the character’s skin and portray their inner feelings and turmoils within a limited time-frame.
Mohanlal comes across as a remarkably laidback and philosophical person in his interviews. He chooses his movies and plays largely based on instinct and likes to let things happen. Many of his directors agree that he is a spontaneous actor who has the ability to express and convey what the director wants, very fast and convincingly and is able to brilliantly portray inner feelings and turmoils of the characters that he plays.
We would certainly appreciate his ability to handle different roles. Does not matter if its comedy or charecter role. Anything and everything is possible if lalettan is infront of the camera.
