Mohanlal, the name itself, is solely enough to bring in to our minds a good number of characters made immortal by the actor par excellence.
There are certain roles that only Mohanlal could do. Here, we list some of the characters essayed by the actor which probably no one other than Mohanlal could do with the same amount of perfection.
Go through the slides to know more..
Kunjikuttan In Vanaprastham
The role of Kunjikuttan, a Kathakali artist was performed to perfection by Mohanlal. Well, once you complete watching the entire movie, you really can't imagine any actor other than Mohanlal in that character's shoes.
Nandagopan In Kamaladalam
In Kamaladalam, Mohanlal played the character of a dancer who is an alcoholic. Would you believe if we say that Mohanlal is not a professional classical dancer? Each move of the actor was perfect and it wasn't just about the dance, the enigmatic performance of the actor was also unmatchable.
Mangalasseri Neelakandan In Devasuram
When we hear the name Mangalasseri Neelakandan, only the name of one actor would come in to our minds and that name is Mohanlal. He literally made the character immortal with his charm, elegance and unique style.
Dr Sunny In Manichithrathaazhu
Mohanlal made the character of Dr Sunny really enjoyable. Adding a good dose of humour, with a typical naughty style, we loved this character to the core. Each expression of the actor remains priceless.
Rameshan Nair In Thanmathra
The role of Rameshan Nair is one of the best that the actor has got, in the recent times. A well-written role, executed exceptionally well by the actor. The film and the character made such an impact that we can't imagine any other actor doing the role of Rameshan Nair.
Aadu Thoma In Spadikam
Aadu Thoma still remains an iconic character and major share of the credit should go to the actor who made the character immortal.
Rajeev Menon In Dasaratham
Those of you have watched the climax portions of this film, would easily understand why this character features in this list. It was indeed an unmatchable performance given by Mohanlal. Add to it, the cuteness and lovable factors the actor added to the character, we simply can't imagine anyone else as Rajeev Menon.
Kalloor Gopinathan In Bharatham
Well, take a look at the sequences in which Mohanlal could be seen lip-syncing to the songs set to tune by Raveendran and sung by Yesudas. Perfect! That has to be the word to describe them.
Tony Kurishingal In No. 20 Madras Mail
Tony Kurishinkal, a youngster who is annoying, problematic and alcoholic, buy yet lovable. Who else other than Mohanlal could bring in all these characteristics together?
Vinod In Thalavattam
Probably, this is one of the most underrated performances of the actor. The character Vinod was subtly handled by Mohanlal without going overboard in any situations.
Well, the above list is just a handpicked one and it doesn't contain all the characters performed by the actor, so far. More importantly, the above list may not contain all the best performances of the actor in his career so far.
Mohanlal always adds a special charm to the characters portrayed by him, which is probably difficult to recreate, by others. In fact, this is what that makes him a very special actor.
The magical touch and the spontaneity that the actor brings to his roles are always a pleasure to watch. It isn't that any other actor can't do it, but it is like we can't imagine anyone else in that particular shoes.
Probably, this might be the reason why remakes of Mammootty and Mohanlal starrers are not that common in Mollywood. The comparisons are inevitable and to live up to the expectations is definitely a daunting task.
