Storyline

Neelakandan (Mohanlal) is the heir to the Mangalasherry family who squanders away his father's largest and is a dependable menace to society. One of his victims is promising dancer Bhanu (Revathi) who vows never to dance again till his death following a public affront by Neelakandan and his cronies. Ironically they fall in love. Meanwhile, the vicious Shekaran (Napoleon) of a rival clan has sworn to avenge the death of his uncle, killed by Neelakandan's men. A reasonably watchable film that goes fairly awry towards the second half. Innocent is good as Neelakandan's long-suffering manservant. Written by Joyojeet Pal

What a beautiful Film... Only the name "Mangalaserry Neelakandan" is enough
21 August 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Devasuram is one of the most successful Malayalam movies and was directed by I. V. Sasi starring Mohanlal. The movies has a cult following and the characters in the movies are fondly remembered by the Malayalees. The rivalry between Mangalasherry Neelakantan (Mohanlal) and Mundakkal Shekaran (Napolean) is the main theme of the movie.

Only the name "Mangalaserry Neelakandan" is enough. Beautiful Movie. Nice Direction. Devasuram adds feather to the Mohanlal acting. Acted by Mohanlal as "Mangalachery Neelakandan". Just the name says the power of the character. Character selection in this movie is excellent. Napeolean as "Sekharan" is another highlight of the movie. Then the character of Innocent. Wah... Then Revathi, Nedumudi venu and all main characters done their work extraordinary beautiful. Climax Scene is one of the highlight of the movie. Music by M.G Radhakrishan is excellent. Esp the song "Vande mukunda hare" sung by himself is amazing. Another main character is Oduvil unnikrishnan(peringodan). Nice Screenplay by renjith. Totally one of my favorite movie
