Mohanlal is probably the greatest star in Malayalam film. With a famous profession spreading over more than three decades, he’s done some extraordinary, unmatched work in Malayalam. Notwithstanding, he has demonstrated his adaptability in different dialects also. In the event of his 60th birthday celebration, here’s a glance at five of his best non-Malayalam films that are verification to his range.
Koratala Siva’s Janatha Garage saw Mohanlal share screen space with Jr NTR, another young star from this generation. Cut from the same cloth as RGV’s Sarkar, the film featured Mohanlal in the role of a small workshop owner Sathyam, who also operates as a local don. His performance not only worked in the film’s favour but also gave Jr NTR an opportunity to learn more about realistic acting.

In the Tamil redo of A Wednesday, Mohanlal repeated Anupam Kher’s job from the first. The film likewise highlighted Kamal Haasan ahead of the pack job. In what could be depicted as one of his misjudged exhibitions, Mohanlal played his character as convincingly as could be expected under the circumstances, figuring out how to leave an effect regardless of sharing screen space with Kamal Haasan. Indeed, even in an all-inclusive screen appearance, he conveyed a champion exhibition.
Jilla saw Mohanlal share screen space with Tamil cinema’s biggest star Vijay. In the film, he played a Madurai-based don, who adopts a boy (Vijay) who grows up to be his right-hand man. Some of the best moments of the film are the scenes between the lead actors. For Mohanlal, Jilla was a refreshing departure to share screen space with a much younger actor and he had no qualms about it. One of the reasons for the film’s runaway success in Kerala was the presence of Mohanlal
In his lady Hindi excursion, Mohanlal collaborated with free thinker movie producer Ram Gopal Varma in Company. In the film, he played the character of IPS Veerapalli Srinivasan, who utilizes the crack between Ajay Devgn and Vivek Oberoi in the film to manage the mafia. His exhibition in Company proceeded to win him the best supporting entertainer at the IIFA Awards and Star Screen Awards. Despite the fact that he proceeded to collaborate again with RGV in the profoundly frustrating Aag, Mohanlal’s presentation in Company gets discussed even today.
Mohanlal’s first significant lead job in a non Malayalam film was Mani Ratnam’s Iruvar, which saw the veteran play a character called Anandam, displayed after previous Tamil Nadu boss priest and incredible entertainer MG Ramachandran (MGR). Tipped to be perhaps the best work of Mohanlal, the film demonstrated that language was not an obstruction for the star and he could have an effect in any job. Clearly, Mani Ratnam was so intrigued by Mohanlal’s sensible execution, he neglected to state cut many occasions while shooting.
