His first positive role was in "Padayottam" (1982), the first 70 mm film in Malayalam.

In an early critically acclaimed performance, Mohanlal played an antihero in the I. V. Sasi-directed thriller "Uyarangalil" (1984).

Nicy V.P of "International Business Times" rated the film 2.5/5 and wrote "The film has somehow managed to keep the interest of the audience from starting till the end, but lacks depth in the script. The story is peppered with some fun elements. However, do not expect a laughter-filled script that has a smooth flow" and concluded "Aamayum Muyalum is a one-time watchable flick if you go without much expectation". Sijit Chandra Kumar of "Deccan Chronicle" rated it 2/5 and called it "a comedy of 'errors" and stated "It is not hard to sacrifice logic and disbelief at the altar of comedy but the problem is, the jokes do not possess the intended punch but fall flat like the desperate jabs of a tired pugilist. The mood is never serious, so you don’t take the message, too, all that seriously; that money doesn’t bring happiness or peace only but only breeds greed". Deepa Soman of "The Times of India" gave a rating of 2/5 and said "The makers of "Aamayum Muyalum" claim that it's a comedy flick, but after impatiently waiting for more than two hours for laughter, you end up with an entertainment-induced headache! For those planning to relive the memories of "Kilukkam", "Poochakkoru Mookkuthi", "Thenmavin Kombathu", "Boeing Boeing" and all those evergreen comic capers, this is not one such joyride. As the film inches ahead piggy-backing on cliched humour, one wonders whether it's actually a Priyadarshan film, for real". "" rated it 2.5/5 and said "A simple plot, a whole lot of interesting characters, abundance of slapstick and situational comedy, neat visuals, a laugh riot of a climax sequence that involves almost all the characters in the film. Priyadarshan has not stepped away from his heterogeneous formula that has been working for him since the ‘Priyan – Lal’ days" and gave a verdict "Great visuals and interesting characterization placed on a flat screenplay".
