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

Artistic movies of yesteryear
16 November 2017 | by sriv-440-228287See all my reviews

Few movies can be described as artistic, and they are a joy to behold. Devasuram is one such movie from the good old, early 90's. A classic which was not even replicated by it's sequel.

A wonderful movie directed well by I.V. Sasi and wonderfully acted by Mohanlal. This has to be one of his most iconic roles ever. Revathy, who is by nature a lovely actor and a fine dancer, did her role to perfection. Her chemistry with whom the Malayalis refer to as "The complete actor" was endearing. All the supporting characters, including the likes of Nadumudi Venu and Innocent, played a significant part. The music, directed by M.G.Radhakrishnan and S.P. Venkatesh gelled with the story profoundly, especially with the help of some legendary singers. A once in a lifetime movie, not to be missed by lovers of art.
