From the era of Prem Nazir, we are familiar with the word ‘Double Role’. We like the presence of our favorite stars on the screen, so doesn’t that double up when they come in a double role? Unfortunately, only few make the desired impact in the theatres. Let’s take a look at those few :
Prem Nazir :
He is the record holder in this category, playing more than 35 films in double roles. His noted films are Kunjali Marakkar, Rahasyam, Ernakulam Junction etc.
Mammookka has done the most number of successful double roles in Malayalam cinema. His best are those in Dada Sahib, Annan Thampi and Paleri Manikyam.
Malayalees own ‘Lalettan’ has done lesser films when compared to Mammookka. His best ones are in Raavanaprabhu, Mayamayooram and Naadody.
Even though Dileep has done very few double role movies like Pachakuthira, Kunjikoonan and Vellaripravinte Changathi, his portrayal in all these films are commendable.
Fahadh Faasil :
‘Ayaal Njanalla’ directed by the actor Vineeth Kumar portrayed this young actor in double roles. Even though film wasn’t much noted, the actor did an excellent work in the movie.
