by rakeshrnath | created - 03 Mar 2012 | updated - 2 months ago | Public

This is an attempt to list down the best 151 Malayalam movies ever made. Though I have not made any discrimination in between parallel and commercial cinema, I might have missed many of the hits in Malayalam. Would be great if u let me know so that I can add into.
