The 1st Adoor Gopalakrishnan film tat I saw was this. Reading about his directorial prowess, I had to see at least 1 film of his. I was impressed and how. Mammootty is plainly put, outstanding. His 2nd National Award for Best Actor was jointly for Vidheyan and Ponthan Mada. After seeing Mammootty act, or rather live, the role for around 10 minutes, you'll understand why he got the award. The film is about a master-servant relationship. It's a beautiful film in all aspects. Kudos to Adoor for making this film. Be warned Mohanlal fans, watching Vidheyan may just force you the turn the tables! Mammootty is arguably the best actor who showcases anger. His look is stunning. His accent is spot-on. His facial and eye expressions are perfect. This film is right up there among the greatest films and more so, among the greatest performances by an actor.
