The career graphs
Mohanlal made perfect use of the first power-play, if one were to use a cricket analogy. Right until the mid-nineties, he was unstoppable, making ordinary movies seem good and converting good ones into mini classics with his natural acting skills. 'Sanmanassullavarku Samdhanam', 'T P Balagopalan. M.A.', 'Uyarangalil', 'Thoovanathumbikal', 'Nadodikaatu', 'Thalavattom', 'Sadayam', 'Chithram', 'Kilukkam', 'Kireedom', 'Vaastuhaara', 'Amrutham Gamaya', 'Panchagni', 'Padamudra', 'Rajavinte Makan', 'Ulsavepittenu', 'Bharatham'; it wouldn't be wrong to say Lal made the movies as much as they made him.
