Mohanlal and Sreenivasan have been everyone’s favourite and whenever they have been featured together in a movie, they have given us some memorable moments. Mazha Peyyunnu Maddalam Kottunnu was one such film. When Sreenivasan asks Mohanlal (who is not fluent in speaking English), “How many kilometres from Washington DC to Miami Beach?” and the latter’s response to it, “I Am The Answer…Kilometres and Kilometres”, it left everyone in splits. So today if you ask a Malayali about a particular distance, you might end up hearing that dialogue.
This dialogue from the movie Kilukkam is implemented when someone acts crazy. So it’s like asking him/her, “You Are Crazy, Right?”
“Lelu Allu Lelu Allu Lelu Allu”
If you want to apologise to your Malayali pal try saying “Lelu Allu Lelu Allu Lelu Allu”, the person will not just get where it is coming from, but will also burst into laughter. This is the epic scene from the movie Thenmavin Kombath is such that one won’t ever forget.
No one other than Mohanlal could have made these dialogues sound so good and relatable. These can indeed be implemented in your day-to-day conversation. We are waiting to hear more such epic dialogues from the superstar in his future projects. Happy Birthday, Laletta!
