For Mohanlal the previous year is being a year of bunch of super hits, so the expectations are high as sky for Munthiri Vallikal Thalirkkumbol. Let’s have a look at cinema.Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol is an adaptation of the story ‘Pranayopanishad’ follows the life of Ulahannan, a middle aged government servant, through his emotional journey of misconceptions and love.

Ulahannan is being a new character for him as I doubt he doesn’t do a role like this earlier. After all those heavy actions Ulahannan is a get back of Moahanlal to his old family type character and he excels in that in all manners.
