Saudi–based journalist K. U. Iqbal wrote an article which was published in "Bhashaposhini Varshika Pathippu 2010". The report was based on the abuse and mistreatments of "Khaddamas" ("housemaids") in Saudi Arabia and was particularly inspired by the true life incidents of a maid servant named Subaida. It was a small news item published in "Malayalam News" (a Malayalam daily published in the Persian Gulf area) in 2002 — "Subaida
", which forms the seed of the reportage. Iqbal says he is used to getting calls from Indians in deportation camps on a daily basis, but somehow it was the call from Subaida which struck a chord in him and he followed it up. Years later the "Bhashaposhini" editor-in-charge, K. C. Narayanan, asked Iqbal to do an article for its anniversary edition. Iqbal narrated several of his Gulf stories to him but it was the story of Subaida which appealed to the editor.
1988 was a landmark year in Priyadarshan's career. He directed "Vellanakalude Nadu", based on a script by Sreenivasan, with Mohanlal in the lead role. This film revolved around corruption, land mafia and other social issues. This film ended up becoming the biggest hit in Priyadarshan's career to that point. Then came "Aryan", an action film based on the Mumbai underworld, which completed 150 days in theatres. "Chithram", Priyadarshan's all-time biggest hit, was also released in 1988. "Chithram" completed 366 days in theatres and created new records in collections, until they were broken by his own film, "Kilukkam" in 1991. "Oru Muthassi Katha" and "Mukunthetta Sumitra
" completed his 5 releases of 1988. However, he couldn't deliver hits in 1990 with "Kadathanadan Ambadi" and "Akkareyakkareyakkare". In the year 1991, Priyadarshan brought out "Kilukkam" with Mohanlal, Jagathi Sreekumar and Revathi in lead roles. "Kilukkam" broke several collection records and is still considered one of the best films from the Priyadarshan-Mohanlal team. His next three films, "Abhimanyu" (1991), "Advaitham" (1992), and "Thenmavin Kombathu" (1994) successfully completed 100 days in theatres. Both "Midhunam" (1993) and "Minnaram" (1994) were able to make good response in cinemas. Meanwhile, Priyadarshan was invited by Shri. M. Karunanidhi to direct a film for his son's production house. Priyadarshan thus made his Tamil debut with "Gopura Vasalile" . In 1991 he also made a Telugu film "Nirnayam" when Nagarjuna approached him to remake his Malayalam film "Vandanam" in Telugu. In the year 1992, Priyadarshan made his debut in Bollywood with "Muskurahat", again remake of his own Malayalam film "Kilukkam" which ended up as a disastrous flop. In 1993, he made a comeback in Hindi with "Gardish", an adaptation of the Malayalam film "Kireedom", written by A. K. Lohithadas. Priyadarshan successfully added ingredients required for Hindi audiences and the film was a huge hit, opening the doors of Bollywood to him. In 1994, Priyadarshan directed his second and last Telugu film till date, "Gandeevam", starring Balakrishna. He was also assigned the direction of the Miss World 1996 event that was held in Banglore, which made him a known face around the country. In 1996, Priyadarshan came up with his dream project, "Kalapani", an epic period film based on Indian struggle for Independence. With Mohanlal, Tabu, Prabhu Ganesan and Amrish Puri in main roles and outstanding music by Ilaiyaraja, "Kalapani" took Priyadarshan's career path to new heights. This film, which was originally filmed in Malayalam, was also dubbed and released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi simultaneously. "Kalapani" brought him several awards for the first time in his career. In 1997, Priyadarshan directed two films, "Chandralekha" in Malayalam and "Virasat" a Hindi adaptation of Bharathan's Tamil film "Thevar Magan", both super hits. The success of "Virasat" made Priyadarshan a household name in Hindi cinema.
