Brilliant script, brilliant direction, brilliant acting and brilliant execution
2 January 2018 | by arun_mrSee all my reviews

Sphadikam is an acclaimed film directed by Mohanlal. Mohanlal is playing the role of the king of the movie, but the role of the movie is also made by Sphadikam. Mohanlal fans are still trying to bring the character in digital form into the Big Screen.

Thomas Chacko was a pedophilist, but with a lot of features and abilities. Thomas Chacko was a go-getaway for Chacko Maash, who believed that the glue of the globe was considered. Thomas Chacko later became a stumbling blocker of the Thett Thomas, but had a beautiful heart in him.

Spatakikam is a film that shows the value of livelihood of Chacko Masch who has traded the tradition of Thomas Chacko. Mohanlal also says that his favorite movie is Swadhakali.

Mohanlal admits to the stereotype of the story
