Mohanlal, the complete actor of Mollywood has been considered as one of the finest actors of world cinema. He has astonished the audiences a million times, with his magical performances on the silver screen.
As we all know, Mohanlal is an actor who performs in the song sequences to near perfection. It is truly a delight to watch our Lalettan performing for a beautiful song on the silver screen, and no other actor can really match that charm.
Here are best 7 performances by Mohanlal, which prove that he is the king of song sequences...
Ramakadha Ganalayam (Bharatham)
The best performance by Mohanlal in a song sequence till date. The actor brilliantly portrayed the inner conflicts of his character Gopinathan, through his impeccable performance in this song sequence. Mohanlal won his first Best Actor trophy at the National Film Awards, for his performance in Bharatham.
A Mohanlal song in MG Sreekumar's voice is truly a treat to any Malayalam film music lover. The actor was a complete magic in this extraordinarily visualised Carnatic song sequence. Nagumo still remains as one of the most celebrated song sequences in his career.
Devasabhathalam (His Highness Abdullah)
Mohanlal pulled off the role of a genius Carnatic musician with absolute ease in this special song sequence. Legendary singer Dr. KJ Yesudas lent voice for Mohanlal this song, which was based on 'Raagamalika' ragam. This song sequence can undoubtedly give goosebumps to any music lover.
Entharo Mahanu (Devadoothan)
One of the most underrated song sequences of Mohanlal's career till date. The actor's performance as an exceptionally talented musician in the song, which was a beautiful adaption of the legendary Thyagaraja keerthanam 'Entharo Mahanubhavulu', was simply breath-taking.
Thaamarapoovil Vaazhum (Chandralekha)
This song once again proved that Mohanlal's performance and MG Sreekumar's voice can do wonders on the silver screen. Especially the last portion of the song sequence, where the magical actor lip-synced the super-tough Carnatic swarams sung by Sreekumar with absolute brilliance, was mindblowing.
Harimuraleeravam (Aaram Thamburan)
This song sequence has played a great part in placing Mohanlal as the 'complete actor' of Mollywood. The fantastic dialogue delivery in the beginning and exceptional lip-syncing made us feel that the actor himself sang the song for us. An absolute gem from the Mohanlal-Yesudas duo.
Chinnamma was the best gift from Mohanlal to his fans, who have been terribly missing the 'vintage Lalettan' on the silver screen. Watching a song sequence in which Mohanlal sings in MG Sreekumar's voice after ages was truly a magnificent experience for the movie audiences.
There are many more song sequences in Mohanlal's career, which truly won the hearts of the film lovers. The song sequences in the movies like Thenmavin Kombathu, Pavithram, Vandanam, Yodha etc., are some of the best examples.
Even though there was no lip-syncing, Mohanlal was simply fantastic in the Vaalinmel Poovum song sequence from Pavithram. His super-cute expressions in the beautifully visualised song sequence was truly a treat to watch.
Similarly, Mohanlal-Jagathy Sreekumar duo's exceptional performance in Padakali song from Yodha, has made it one of the best-picturised songs of Malayalam movie industry. Well, he is called 'the complete actor' for a reason...
