A film that sets new heights in Mollywood film industry.
Just checked out Kaalpaaadukal & was expecting the usual song & dance that you would expect in a Malayalam film. But got more than i expected as there is more than meets the eye with Kaalpaadukal. The story of Maakotha (P. J. Antony) is a Dalit tenant of the wealthy landlord Iravi Namboodiri (Nambyath). Maakkotha's teenaged son accidentally happens to touch Iravi Namboodiri. In those days, untouchability was a burning social evil. In his fury Iravi Namboodiri drags the boy to his house and beats him. Helpless Maakotha and his young daughter Paaru (Shanthi) stand dumb witness to the cruel act. Kind-hearted Unni Namboodiri (Prem Nazir), Iravi Namboodiri's son, rescues the boy. Unni Namboodiri falls in love with Paaru. They meet secretly and their love blooms. Unni Namboodiri meets Kumaran Asan (Kollam Sukumaran) who, by his poetical works, protested against untouchability. Sree Narayana Guru (K. P. Paul) guides the people follow 'one caste, one religion, one God.' The monopoly of Brahmins comes to an end. Guru establishes temples throughout Kerala. Unni Namboodiri mingles with the Dalits and takes part in all progressive movements led by Kumaran Asan. Unni Namboodiri is thrown out of this house when Iravi Namboodiri comes to know of his son's love affair with Paaru. Iravi Namboodiri's men also thrash Maakkotha. The people revolt against Namboodiri and communal riots break out. Guru intervenes and frays down tempers. Unni Namboodiri weds Paaru bringing the film to a happy end....
