Mallu Film Titles...


I have to say Mollywood has the best film titles out there. They are really snazzy, vibrant, and stand apart.I guess a lot has to do with some of them being actual pieces of dialogue.Like "Irrikyu, MD akathundu" which translates to "Please have a seat,the MD is inside".Some of these lose their effect when they are translated,but still I have compiled a list of some titles I could remember.

1)Manjil Virinja Pookkal- the flowers that blossomed in the winter/snow
2)novemberinte nashtam- the loss in November
3)mukundetta sumitra vilikyannu- Mukund bhaiyya,aapko Sumitra bula rahi hai
4)Aayiram Navulla Ananthan- Thousand tongued Ananthan
5)Chinthavishtayaya Shyamala - the Worrisome Shyamala
6)Deshadanakili Karayarilla - Migratory Birds do not cry/chirp
7)Ee Ganam Marakkumo -Will you forgot this song ( wow, that sounds so melodramatic)
8)Ennu Swantham Janakikkutty -Yours Janakikutty (like at the end of a letter)
9)Hareendran Oru Nishkalankan - Hareendran is a simpleton
10)Yathrakkarude Sradhakku - For the attention of the passengers
11)Veendum Chila Veettukaryangal - Once again ,some domestic matters (and I win the Horrible translation award )
12)Sathyabhamaykoru Premalekhanam - A love letter for Satyabhama
13)Sakhakkale Munnottu - Forward,Comrades
