Regarded as a cult classic by Malayalam cinema lovers, Spadikam is an action-packed mass entertainer revolving around a disciplinarian father and his ruffian son. While Thilakan played the father’s role, Mohanlal essayed the role of Aadu Thoma, a character that has become a pop culture icon over the years.

The highest-grossing Malayalam film of 1995, Spadikam fetched Mohanlal a state award for Best Actor and was remade as Veerappu in Tamil, Vajram in Telugu, and Mr Theertha in Kannada.
