Kummatty - 1979
Kummatty is adapted from a Central Kerala folk tale about a partly mythic and partly real magician called Kummatty.
Kummatty travel from place to place and entertain children with dancing, singing and performing magic. At one such performance at a village, Kummatty turns a group of children into animals. But one boy, who was changed into a dog, is chased away and misses the moment Kummatty changed the children back to their human form. The dog-boy has to wait a year until Kummatty returns to the village to get back his human form.
Aravindan claimed Kummatty to be his personal favourite film.
Kummatty won the State award for best children's film.
Direction, Screenplay & Co-Music: G Aravindan
