Madhpal, hats off to you!!
2 November 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

There are certain films that are a whole way ahead of its time. Thalappavu is one of them.

The so called malayalam film critics may think only adoor's films are best, but this one is a gem. It's way above Adoor's 'Naalu Pennunghal'

Never in any frame it look liked a debut director's venture..

Don't go by the rating.. this film will be considered a classic in the future..

It is a story of a man who has committed one mistake (and only one) in his lifetime and how his life turn over him after that. Madhupal has done a great job with a great script. hats off to him..

Lal has given the lifetime best performance and Prithviraj was good as usual.

Background score was awesome.

well Madhpal, Give me more....
