Mohanlal, when it comes to mass films, there is no word next to Mohanlal in Mollywood. We can say that he is the best when it comes to mass characters and unarguably the best ever crowd puller of Malayalam Cinema. Mohanlal is the only actor in Mollywood who can bring mass and class through same character and the reason for the success of his mass characters is his attitude too.
Many other stars in Mollywood never let the one who plays the villain role to their mass hero character to stand head to head with them. Ego is the main problem there. But Mohanlal is not like that. He always want each and every actor to have their prominence irrespective of whether they are a big or small artist. That may be the reason why when someone plays Villain to Mohanlal’s mass characters, the villain role become great mass like the hero character of Mohanlal. Now, young star Unni Mukundan too want to do a mass Villain character against Mohanlal.
Unni Mukundan says that he really wants to such a negative character against Mohanlal in a mass movie as only Mohanlal can pull of mass is style. Unni Mukundan says that he really want to play a real bad villain against Mohanlal. The great villain characters that pitted against the superb mass roles of Mohanlal had become the best roles of many actors in their career. Sphadikam for Sphadikam George, Kireedam for Keerikkadan Jose or Mohan Raj, Aaram Thampuran for Narendra Prasad( Kulappully Appan), Narasimham for N F Varghese (Manappally Pavithran), Devasuram for Napolean (Mundakkal Shekharan) etc. There are many others as well. Unni Mukundan wants to join that league of actors by playing a great villain role against the biggest mass hero her in Mollywood.
