Where do we begin ?

The farther we go into the history of Malayalam cinema, the darker it becomes in terms of corroborative, verifiable facts, figures, and above all media assets. Added to it is the effort needed to process the legacy information into a format that is engaging in the current media devices context, presenting it in a way that it becomes easily ‘palatable’ across generations (literally). With Miss Kumari, sifting the chaff from the grain has been an ardrous process and we would want to thank all the contributions – direct and indirect, who have contributed to this. You have helped add one more corroborative building block into this online legacy edifice.

So, Thank You


Surendranathan Palakkal, Prasad Puzhankara, Darshana Mini Sreedhar for your contributions
