Storyline

Rajeev Menon (Mohanlal) is a wealthy orphan, a spoilt rich brat who grew up to be an eccentric millionaire. While his trusty manager (Karamana Janardhanan Nair)takes care of his vast estates, Rajeev drowns his days in alcohol. His lack of values stems from bitter childhood memories of his mother deserting his father. His eccentricities vary from picking up drunken brawls with strangers to wanting to experience 'interesting' things in life like being handcuffed by the police. Winds of change gush into his lonely life when he agrees to play host to his friend Scaria's (Nedumudi Venu) family for the vacation. Scaria's brood of mischievous kids take a liking to Rajeev. As they tear his palatial house down, they also make him realize what he's been missing in life. Once they leave, he feels a void in his existence which he intends to fill by adopting a child. When he is denied adoption due to his wayward ways, his friend Dr. Hameed (Sukumaran) suggests artificial insemination as a way of ... Written by Prabhu Manohar

Mohanlal's finest performance
29 August 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Dasaratham is one of my favorite all time movies. Great script , Great acting and Great direction . All three come together in this drama.

The highlight for me in the film is Lal as Rajeev Menon . The transition from a rich playboy to a mature father is very well portrayed by Lal.This must be Lalettan's finest performance as he combines comedy and emotions in this role wonderfully.He deserved a national award for this movie but then maybe the movie was ahead of its time.You truly feel the emotions through his acting in this movie. The rest of the cast like Murali , Rekha etc have also done a wonderful job. The climax scenes and emotional scenes can move anyone to tears.Special mention should also be give Lohithadas script . What a script, such touching dialogues and director Sibi Malayil also proves why he is considered the best in drama and emotions.

A must watch.
