Malayalam film industry has produced some wonderful films based on the lives of children. The success that such films enjoy in Mollywood, has led the film-makers to come up with more and more films of this genre.
In fact, the popular film My Dear Kuttichathan, could be considered as one such movie, which started off this trend. It was one of those rare films of those days, which went on to gain huge popularity despite not having any huge stars in the movie.
In fact, this year so far has been a splendid one for Mollywood and its audiences as far as the number of movies, based on children, is concerned. Here, we list some of the Malayalam films, released in this year so far, which had a children based subject. Read on.
