"Such movies like Sholay and Ulagam Sutrum Valiban are crafted on a grand scale, necessitating a theatrical viewing experience. Back then, we didn’t even have mini-screens, right? Personally, I enjoy watching films in theatres, whether they are large or small. However, when we try to watch big films on smaller screens, we miss out on their many nuances in areas such as music, mixing and other aspects. Therefore, such films offer a superior experience when viewed on larger screens and Malaikottai Vaaliban possesses all these qualities," Mohanlal stated.
