was the magnum opus of Mani
Ratnam with Rajinikanth.
The film also brought a new screen persona
to the Malayalam superstar, Mamooty.
Ratnam took the Nayakan
tale a little further and Dalapathi was
the thinly veiled modern version of Mahabaratha.
every great film, we get an impression which
lingers much after the film is over. In
Dalapathi, although good ultimately prevails
over evil, the journey is portrayed with
the obstacles and difficulties. That is
the greatest plus for the film.
