Historic hit
12 December 2018 | by vjnambuSee all my reviews

Godfather was the third directorial venture of successful duo Siddique-Lal after surprise hit ramji rao speaking and cult blockbuster in harihar Nagar. It marked the silver screen debut of legendary theatre artist N.N. Pilla as Anjooran. Godfather narrates the story of two rival families Anjooran and Aanapara. Problems arise when Anjooran's son ramabhadran and Aanapara girl Malu fall in love with each other. Reading this, you may wonder this is another Romeo-Juliet story but no. Even though the story is melodramatic, siddique lal gives this with their signature humour touch. Each and every comedy scene of this film is afresh in malayalee audience in mind. Though mukesh is the hero, it's the supporting cast pilla, innocent, jagadeesh, philomina etc who dominate the film. Godfather is the longest running Malayalam film ever. It ran for 400 days breaking the record of Mohanlal's Chitram. Godfather is my favorite Siddique Lal movie.
