His directorial hits included Lal Salaam, which revolved around the lives of the early Communist leaders of Kerala, Sukhamo Devi and Ai Auto. It was his directorial projects like "Sughamodevi", "Sarvakalashala", "Hey Auto" and "Lal Salam" that catapulted Mohanlal to the status of a superstar, in the late '80s.
His oeuvre also had a strain of his left leanings; in addition to acting in films like ‘Meenamasathile Sooryan' (about the Kayyur revolt) and heading the production wing of a pro-left television channel, two of the films he directed – ‘Lal Salam' (1990) and ‘Raksthasakhikal Zindabad' (1998) – were an introspective look at the rise and fall of communist ideals. Venu examines these issues by dealing with the cracks in political movements, its hopes and later degeneration, create in human relationships.
A political story set in the pre 1947 India when Communism Comes into picture.
