Mohanlal Biography

His long time friend and ace director Priyadarshan rates him as the best actor in the world. The irresistible Mani Ratnam says he is the most natural actor in India. Some critics opine he is more versatile an actor than the legendary Kamal Hasan. Few will dispute the fact that there aren’t many actors on Indian screen who can handle both comic and serious roles with the same panache of his. No prize for guessing him right. He is Mohan Lal, the reigning super star of Malayalam cinema.

Though praise is lavishly bestowed on him time and again by the biggies in the film world, much is not known about Mohan Lal outside Kerala. One reason for this publicity shy is his humble nature. But that is off the screen. On screen he is different person. He has no inhibitions whatsoever when it comes to expressing a range of complex emotions. Be it the intricate feelings of a Kathakali artiste caught between the reality and myth (Vanaprastham) or the simpleton nature of jobless youth (Nadodikatte), emotions just flash across his face effortlessly.

In a remarkable performance, he depicted the different contours of an underworld don. The huge success of the film set a trend. Soon a series of films based on underworld followed. Lal himself, starred in many of them.

He touched newer heights in his career with his splendid performance in Keeridam. Playing an ambitious youth, who for no fault of his was forced to done the criminal’s attire, Lal distinctively portrayed how a wronged man can get alienated from near and dear ones. He soul-touching performance won Special mention of National Film Awards Jury.

It was his outstanding performance in Bharatam that he won the national award for best acting for the first time. Playing as a Carnatic musician burdened by the death of his guru and drunkard elder brother is an uphill task for any talented actor for the plot of the film involved all the intricacies of a family drama too. The role was particularly challenging as it was seasoned actor Nedumudi Venu who played his elder brother. But the role remained safe in Mohan Lal’s hands. For his essaying the role, adulation poured in from different quarters. And to top it all came the Rajat Kamal for best actor.

A perfectionist he is believed to have learned Kathakali to attain perfection in the role of Kathakali artiste, Kunhikuttan in Vanaprastahm. Even the genuine Kathakali artistes were amused to see Mohal Lal identifying himself with the complex mudras and bhavas of a Kathakali artiste on screen.
