Malayalam comedy-drama ‘Panchavalsara Padhathi’ was released on April 26, 2024, in theatres. Featuring Siju Wilson and PP Kunhikrishnan in prominent roles, the film is directed by PG Premlal.

‘Panchavalsara Padhathi’ offers a fresh perspective to an ordinary plotline

The film’s story revolves around Sanoj (played by Siju Wilson), who runs an Akshaya Centre in his village. One day, the villagers start having visions of Kalambasuran, a local legend.

What could be the possible meaning behind these sudden visions? And what impact would it have on the villagers’ minds seeped in superstitions?

Incorporating down-to-earth life stories with an underlying societal message has become a trend for small-budget films. ‘Panchavalsara Padhathi‘ aims to convey a strong message to its audience using satire.

Panchavalsara Padhathi is an ordinary story about ordinary people but presented in such a graceful manner that it will make the audience walk out of the theatre feeling satisfied.
