Most of the films released by Mohanlal and Shaji Kailash have been well-received by the audience. Many super hit movies have been released in Malayalam in this association. Aaram Tampuran is a hit film directed by Shaji Kailas and starring Mohanlal. Released in 1997, Mass Action is still one of Mohanlal’s favorite films. Aaram Tampuran is a film that ran for more than 200 consecutive days in theaters. At that time, the record was surpassed by Mohanlal’s own film Chandralekha.
Mohanlal’s film Aaram Tampuran was one of the few films at the time to earn Rs 7.5 crore at the box office. Jagannathan Thampuran in Kanimangalam Kovilakam is a superstar’s biggest success in his career. Apart from Mohanlal, Manju Warrier, Sai Kumar, Narendra Prasad, Unnikrishnan, Innocent and Kochin Haneefa also acted in the film.
The songs composed by Rabindran Master also helped make ‘Aaram Tampuran’ an audience favorite. Meanwhile, Shaji Kailas says that the ‘AaramTampuran’ movie was not planned with Mohanlal as the lead. The director opened his mind in an interview given to Mathrubhumi. Shaji Kailas says that he first thought of Biju Menon and Manoj K Jayan in this film.
Aaram Tampuran is a critically acclaimed film. Shaji Kelas says that I and Renjith started this film as the story of two friends. Manoj K Jayan and Biju Menon were in my mind then. One day while he was finishing his story in a guest house in Madras, Maniyan Pillai Raju came. The story was then told to a third party for the first time. Raju liked the story and went back.
After two days, producer Suresh Kumar called from Salem. After listening to the story, he expressed interest. Suresh Kumar said that this is a good story for Mohanlal and he can talk to Lal. Later Suresh Kumar came to Madras. Revathi Kalamandir took over the film. Changes were made in the story to suit Mohanlal. Kozhikode Lal listens to the story, so the sixth lord realistically recalled Shaji Kailas in an interview.
After years, the Mohanlal-Shaji Kailas partnership recently announced their new film. Mohanlal himself shared the picture with the team of the film and made the announcement. Anthony Perumbavoor is producing the Mohanlal-Shaji Kailas under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas. After 12 years, the new film of the duo is released.
After Aaram Tampuran, Narasimham is the next blockbuster film of the Mohanlal-Shaji Kailas team. Narasimha was released in 2000. The film is directed by Shaji Kailas and the screenplay is by Ranjith. Mohanlal’s film was screened in theaters for more than 200 days. Narasimha did well at the box office collection along with a good response.
