Malayalees are often considered the most politically inclined group in India. Giving credence to this claim, political ideology has always set the tone for Malayalam films. Here we’ve selected twelve cult films having politics as their major theme. These films reflect the milieu and vibrancy of political culture of Kerala. Majority of them belong to the 1980-1990 era, though we have included a couple of films from the 21st century. Ranging from period films to satires and black comedies, they reflect Kerala's deep passion for politics and the curious interplay between politics and cinema.
