Mohanlal's performance in Sadayam still stands as one of the most underrated performances of the actor. He got to play the role of Satyanathan, a convict who is about to be hanged. Words would be less to describe his performance, which was subtle yet effective.
An epic movie by all means and same is the case of Mohanlal's performance in the film. One cannot imagine anyone else in the shoes of the character of Govardhan. The actor in him had to do comedy, emotional and powerful sequences alike and Mohanlal was successful in doing all these without any hiccups.
The audiences all over the world got to witness the amazing acting talent of Mohanlal through this film, directed by Mani Ratnam. His portrayal of Anandan, is by far one of his finest performances onscreen. Truly, the magical charisma of Mohanlal, the acting legend, was well explored in this movie. Disappointingly, he didn't even receive a special mention for his performance at the National level.
Mohanlal as Rameshan in Thanmathra was nothing less than brilliant. He had to do the different stages of Rameshan with utmost naturalism, which he pulled it off with ease. His depiction of a patient affected by Alzheimer disease won a lot of praises for the actor in him. In the race for the National Awards he lost to Amitabh Bachchan, who won the award for his performance in the movie Black.
It is so disappointing to know that the actor in Mohanlal, hasn't received due recognition for his performance in this film, which is one of the actor's best of this decade. Mohanlal played the role of a stroke survivor in the film and we got to know why he is called the complete actor.
