The Amazing Classic Malayalam Mohanlal film Spadikam

I’ve been on vacation out of the country for a couple of weeks, so I’m catching up on the films in theaters.  One of the films I brought with me on my iPad was Mohanlal’s Spadikam which is on ErosNow.  I love that ErosNow lets you download films now!


I loved the crazy action, but especially the intense family drama between Mohanlal and Thalikan, who plays his stern father.  Devasuram is still my favorite Mohanlal film, but this one is right up there.

The film is also readily available on Youtube.  Check out how crazy the first 10 minutes of the film are.  The viewer is just dropped into the action, with no initial clue as to who Mohanlal is fighting or why.

      Thanks for the suggestions.! I know it’s not Mohanlal’s best work, but it’s a credit to him that he can elevate such a masala action film with his acting skills in the family drama parts.

    I agree that Spadikam maybe isn’t the very best of Mohanlal – that is in movies like Sadayam, Nammuku Paarkan Munthirithoppukal and other but the charisma and bad-boy edginess exuded by Aadu Thoma is like…explosive. The action scenes are awesome. I also like his female lead Urvashi, who is instrumental in bringing him back to his past and reconciling him with his father. Not a trophy female.
    Side note: Could you try watching Nammuku Paarkan Munthirithopukkal?

    ‘Aadu Thoma’ , the character played by Mohanlal in Spadikam is one of those eternal characters. The films like a good one. But like you said Devasuram is better. In fact it happens to be one of my all-time favorite movies. Try watching other Mohanlal classics. You won’t regret it.
