Mammotty is one of the prominent actors in Indian cinema and has been holding the top position in Malayalam film industry for more than three decades now. The veteran actor has also acted as a hero as well as a character artiste in many Tamil films.
Mammotty's latest Malayalam film is Balyakala Sakhi directed by debutante Pramod Payyannur. The film is the adaptation of the novel written by Vaikom Muhammad Basheer with the same name. Mammotty plays dual role as a father and son while Meena and Isha Talwar play the female leads. The film has received negative reviews and not doing well at the box office also.
Adding to this the length of the film which ran to 126 minutes has been reduced to 105 minutes. As per soruces this is because a few love sequences have been removed from the film owing to strong criticism from the fans over Mammootty, a 62 year old actor romancing Isha Talwar who is just 26.
The makers have however refuted the reason attributed for the cut in length.
