Bharathan is credited with introducing a counter culture of meaningful mainstream cinema which often tread the middle path between art-house and commercial cinema called the “middle of the road cinema”. He was also known for visually appealing shot compositions. His films have been especially noted for their artistic quality, and admirers of his inimitable style refer to his directorial seal as the ‘Bharathan touch’.
