Jouney of the Communist movement in the 50s and 60s
6 November 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Lal salam is one of the many classics of the golden era of malayalam films between 1985 to 1995. Among this Lal salam stands out because of its political genre.

Lal Salam is loosely based on the real life story of Thomas Vaidyan , Gowri Amma and Thomas Vaidyan. It tells the story of the transition of Communist from being banned outlaws to the corridors of power. D K (Murali), Nettooran(Lal) and Saidu( Geetha) are leaders of the communist movement in Central Kerala. Nettooran is also in love with Anamma(Uravashi) daughter of a landlord Madhu.The communists are banned and in the process of strengthening among workers.

Performances : Lalettan as Nettur Stephen has delivered a masterclass performance. Murali, Geetha and Uravashi also show their class. Murali in particular has got one of the best roles in his career as D K. Murali and Lalettan together carry this movie.

The movie shows the transformation of the communist movement and the setting of the rot of power in the party.
