"...the former who dances not well..." seems you missed some Mohanlal films :-(

Well, that's entirely possible. I'm basing that statement on what I've seen. If you'd like to provide me with examples to counter it, I'm happy to watch and reconsider. But based on what I've seen, Mohanlal, emminently talented, is not a wonderful dancer. However, when I say he's enthusiastic, I mean that -- he appears to give it his all and jump right into things. That in of itself is an admirable quality, and one I can appreciate, too.

Hello katherine, despite of my poor English, once again I'm taking the liberty to post a comment here.I'm Vipin.I like your blog very much.I'm so happy that I found someone on web who call Malayalam cinema as MALAYALAM cinema,not 'mallu films'. If you would like to watch,here is my picks for Lal's 'dance' movies.Kamaladalam,Vanaprastham,Gandharvam,Kaakkakkuyil..don't expect a 'step up' in any of these...thanks.
btw, Mammootty is the only 'megaaastar' in Malayalam...they call Lal some other tag names like 'complete actor' or 'universal star'...!!

katherine

Hi, again, Vipin,

Thanks for your recommendations -- I've had Vanaprastham for a while, (and I do understand why you've suggested I watch it in this case), so perhaps I should get around to watching it now, eh?

And thanks for the correction, too. I knew Mohalal was called the Complete Actor and Universal Star, but somehow I'd thought I'd seen him billed as Megastar somewhere, too, and that's patently wrong. So I'm happy you let me know. And I'm happy you like my blog, I have a growing admiration and affection for Malayalam cinema that I hope comes through, even when I make mistakes.
