I watched Uyarangalil in the theater as a small kid .....
20 April 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Dear I.V.Shashi,

I watched this film when I was a kid at the Kavitha theater in Ernakulam. I must have been four years old. But the scene where Lalettan jumps off a mountain so that he would not be conquered and captured will forever be etched in my memory. The film is mostly interesting due to Lalettan's ignoble savage role. He rarely played characters like the anti-hero womanizer in this film. I also liked the film's setting in a tea estate. Nedumudi and Rehman as a couple of duffers are perfect foils for Lalettan's cunning character. Swapna as a nurse was a sultry presence. Thanks to you for directing a commercial film for adults based on M.T's story. The box office success of this violent and racy film indicates the maturity of Malayali audiences in the 1980s.

Best Regards, Pimpin.
