The 100 Best Commercial Malayalam Movies (Post-1980)
The 80s and the 90s witnessed the emergence of some of Malayalam cinema's best commercial filmakers - I.V.Sashi, Priyadarshan, Sathyan Anthikaad, Joshi, Sibi Malayayil, Kamal, Padmarajan, Bharathan, K.G.George etc. Mammootty and Mohanlal dominated Malayalam cinema from the early 80s until the early 2000s. So this list is heavy with their films. I am not too fond of post-2000s Malayalam cinema. Most of the films in this list are from the 80s and the 90s. And a lot of the films are slapstick comedies.
