These malayalam stars wouldnt stop at anything. They even went upto strike for Shakila's movies doing good when their own are flops. So they fought to sideline those b-actresses. End of the day, the mallu hobby won.

Malayalam cinema!
by Sudarsan on Sep 25, 2012 10:08 PM  | Hide replies

Malayalam cinema has the worst ever superstars. There have been so many grumbles (public grumbles) about how Mammootty and Mohanlal try to scuttle any other decent talents from realizing their potential. Both these guys want to have a stronghold over Malayalam cinema. Take Tamil cinema - Rajnikanth and Kamalhaasan have never tried to stop upcoming actors from becoming big. Today, Ajith, Vijay, Surya, Vikram have all grown to be established superstars. And the upcoming guys like Dhanush, Jiiva, Ravi, Bharath, etc are also coming up pretty well. As Thilakan says, Malayalam cinema should learn from Tamil cinema about letting good talents come up. The time is up for Mammootty and Mohanlal.

One of the best things that happened to Malayalam cinema, better than Prem Nazir. Maybe even better than Mamooty.

He has already done well in Tamil cinema from where we can learn a lot. So many new actors are coming up every day in Tamil. That should be the way.

Iam barely a keralite and follower of Malayalam movies but Thilakan Saar you will live on in my soul. Your pathos was as incomparable just like Satyan's.

The only problem with Thilakan was that he was born in the wrong part of the world. Had he been a European or an American he wud have been in the league of best actors in the world. Now the situation is that no one knows him beyond Kerala and TN. I haven't seen such a versatile actor like him in Indian cinema. The only recognition he got at national level was that of best supporting actor...phew.

Though I also like Mr. Thilakan and his acting, Agneepath was the best film in India in 1990 and cannot be compared with any film. What a performance it was from Big-B and is the best in the carrier of Big-B.

Did you watch "Premthachan"? Stop commenting like this before you have watched all films that were in contention. And also, the Agneepath performance from Amitabh was no great shakes.

And so definitely, he would have seen much less human excreta in public places than the Bollywood actors!
