The King of God’s Own Country


The king of Kerala. And I am not talking about King Mahabali. Yes, Mahabali did have a brief stint of fame the past few weeks with Onam celebrations. But I am referring to the perennially undisputed king of Malayalam cinema –  our very own Mohanlal or ‘nammude swantham Lalettan’.

Ok, so I have always favoured Mohanlal over Mammootty. Though some might beg to differ. So when Barnaby wrote a NRI article comparing the two actors (an unforgivable sin in itself), it was time to take sides for most of us. And predictably enough I rose to the bait and decided to counter-attack with an article on Lalettan.

It’s interesting to see how fans from both sides have reacted to the article. A must-read for all the Mollywood fans out there :

M for Mollywood, M for Mohanlal

  2. hey i loved this post too :), bcoz i was a die hard fan of lalettan, specially after seeing his movies as minnaram, bharatham,yodaha-ever fav,sukhamo devi etc; was happy to c him in a new avtar with 6aam thamburan, but got heart attack with movies as naran ,narasimham & the latest ‘college kumaran’. now i just prefer watching dileep movies. but still if some1 try comparing lal with mamooty, even i start arguing for lalettan 😉
