Mohanlal pens a heartfelt note as audience shower love on ‘Aadu Thoma’
The seasoned actor turned to his official social media accounts to express his thanks after being brought to tears by the enthusiastic crowd response to Spadikam and his renowned character Aadu Thoma. “I’m really grateful for the outpouring of support and affection for Aadu Thoma, even after 28 long years! Big thanks and congratulations to Bhadran sir and the Spadikam 4K ATMOS team! “Mohanlal posted a picture of himself from the vintage movie along with his writing. The celebrity is seen in the image sporting the fabled “Aadu Thoma” appearance, complete with twirling moustache and trademark Ray-Ban sunglasses.

In the early stages of his career, Mohanlal won a lot of fans with his boy-next-door performances. However, he discarded that image to play the flawed and unlikeable Thomas Chacko, called Aadu Thoma, in Spadikam. With his outstanding portrayal in the part, which is regarded as the pinnacle of anti-hero figures, the entire actor captured millions of hearts. The Bhadran-directed movie had a stellar box office run and ended up becoming the highest-grossing Malayalam movie of 1995 with a lifetime total of almost Rs. 8 Crores.
In addition to Thilakan, KPAC Lalitha, Urvashi, Nedumudi Venu, Bahadoor, Sankaradi, Karamana Janardhanan Nair, NF Varghese, Rajan P Dev, Silk Smitha, Chippy, Ashokan, Indrans, NL Balakrishnan, and many others in supporting parts, the production also included a tremendous star cast. All of the main South Indian languages, including Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada, were later reproduced versions of the Mohanlal starrer.
