Actor Mohanlal Viswanathan is without a doubt the biggest star in the Malayalam cinema industry. Mohanlal's remarkable career, however, is based on his exceptional acting talent rather than on superficial qualities, in contrast to actors who rely primarily on their looks or physical capabilities to fascinate audiences. He has shown incredible talent and incredible devotion to his craft right from the start.
The 63-year-old actor made his acting debut at 18 with the Malayalam film 'Thiranottam' in 1978, but the film's release got delayed for 25 years due to censorship issues. Although Mohanlal prefers to work in Malayalam films, he also acted in several Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada movies. It was 1983's 'Aattakalasam' that gave him immense popularity. In 1984 he starred in 'Poochakkoru Mookkuthi', a comedy film whose success also popularised the genre in the 1980s. He received an honorary prize from the Indian Medical Association for his portrayal of an Alzheimer's patient in Thanmathra (2005), which received rave reviews.
