Director Kamal is one of the most popular film maker in Kerala and considered as one of the all-time best film makers in our industry. Most of the successful directors later came to industry were started as Kamal’s assistant and they learned the art of direction from Kamal. Actor Dileep, director Lal Jose, Roshen Andrews etc had worked with Kamal. Kamal’s association with Mohanlal had given us many memorable films and they are one of the best actor-director combination of our film industry.
Kamal had started his career with the success named Mizhineer Pookkal and Mohanlal was the hero in that film. Mohanlal’s character named Richard was considered as one of the best characters in his career. A hero with negative shades and that was Richard. But Kamal says that he knows Mohanlal even before the release of his first film Manjil Virinja Pookkal and Kamal told in a media interview that his master PN Menon had predicted that Mohanlal will reach the heights in cinema even before his first film released.
