40 years after the man said, “Good evening, Mrs. Prabha Narendran”, changing the course of Malayalam cinema in the process, we take a look at 20 other introduction scenes from his illustrious career spanning over 200 films, to take you on a short trip down memory lane. From classics like Thoovanathumbikal to his action avatars like Rajavinte Makan, we focus more on his films from the 80’s.

In some of shots below, you will almost be able to hear the background score that accompanied his entry. In others, it’s probably just the sound of the audience cheering in theatres that you might remember. Here’s a quick refresher, starting with his first ever shot, told only through GIFs.
