8½ Intercuts: Life and films of KG George celebrates the illustrious career of filmmaker K.G George. Directed by Lijin Jose, this documentary has received acclaim by critics and audiences alike for exploring the life of George through his eight renowned films and focusing on his versatility and capacity to create hard hitting narrations. What emerged as a major talking point for the documentary was its portrayal of the shortcomings of George as an individual - he accepts himself to be unemotional and cold and the documentary does not shy away from depicting this.

If you are planning to explore the filmography of this legendary filmmaker, here are six of his best movies available online.



The first movie where megastar Mammootty played a notable role, Mela was directed by K.G George and also stars Raghu and Anjali Naidu.

But the story takes a turn as soon as the couples reach back to the circus.
