He managed to direct only 3 films till now but those 3 have been extremely impactful movies. His first movie Ashwathama - 1978, is a recap of the same character Ashwathama in Mahabharath. But this is re-narrated in the recent cinematic way. This story is about a young man with a fearful curse to live on earth for the next 3000 years. This movie speaks extremely well about what it is to live for so long and what a man gets to face in this while. This movie is widely appreciated for its freshness of the story. Then K. R. Mohanan took a long gap of 10 yrs. He came up with a brilliant movie Purushartham - 1986. This movie gives a deep insight into what is the reason behind mankind and the rituals we perform. This movie reveals the story of a widow and a son. They are stuck with the struggle in between what heart says and what does the ritual say. The story beautifully unfolds how the son turned into an intelligent person who understands the values of rituals and lets her mother go with her new friend. K. R. Mohanan was appraised by critics as well for his next movie Swaroopam - 1992. It's about a common-man Shekharan who becomes a victim of a blind belief. This beautifully portrays how a person can be deceived if not alert. It makes a bold attempt to reveal the facts about social evils like greed and belief into superstitions.
