All their movies were record-breaking blockbusters.




After that, both decided to part ways as a director pair and Lal turned producer with the Siddique-directed Mammootty-starrer Hitler.[2] Lal debuted in acting with a villain role as Paniyan in Suresh Gopi-starrerKaliyattam, directed by Jayaraj.
