This is a nice list of good Malayalam filims of 2015. Although, don’t know why you chose Premam as no.1. Ennu Ninte Moideen is the best Malayalam padam of 2015, IMO…

Tejas Nair says:

Thanks, Shilesh. I think Premam was terrific and especially because it had great content. Ennu Ninte Moideen was also very good, but I think the influence Alphonse Putharen had on us was extraordinary… Don’t you think?

Excellent list, altho dont agree with Chirakdinja Kinakal.. That was basic and average as heck!!! Keep up the good work, tho…

Tejas Nair says:

Thanks. I loved the spoof comedy and so had to find its way up at #2 on the best films lists of 2015.

Gopalan Pallisery says:

A great list! Although I do feel that Chandrettan Evideya should also have been included in the top 20 Malayalam movies list. Rani Padmini was below average… Good of you to consider Alid as a good film.

Tejas Nair says:

Thanks, Gopalan. Please do like a share if you liked my video of top Malayalam movies ranking, rating, and review list…

Afrad Vk says:

Nice list but i think ennu ninte moideen should have been the topper.Chirkodinja kinavukal was only average

Tejas Nair says:

Ennu Ninte Moideen was a good film about eternal love, but in my analysis, Premam stood ahead because of its contemporary depiction. Also, if I could change the list, Paathemari would have been on the top. I rewatched it last night and was completely blown away. What a film!
Anyways, thanks for watching, Afrad. Do give your suggestions for this year’s list so far.

[…] made a video countdown last time which was received well, so until year-end, lets make do with a […]

The background music that plays during vedakkan selfie scenes is from which movie?

Tejas Nair says:

It’s from Premam’s soundtrack (by Rajesh Murugesan).

Ok Thnx…Tats one hauntingly beautiful piece of music!!

Tejas Nair says:

True. You should check out the full score track of Premam. It’s beautiful.
