Malikappuram revolves around an eight-year-old girl named Kalyani and her journey to Sabarimala, the abode of Lord Ayyappa. This is a film made entirely for family audiences. The audience is given a glimpse into the devotion and innocence of a child's mind in the film, which has been directed by debutant Vishnu Sasi Sankar.
Malikappuram is a reinterpretation of the concept of God that evokes the virtue of a pilgrimage for both those who are familiar with Sabarimala and those who are not. Child actors Devanandana and Sripad Yan deliver stellar performances in the film. Besides them, the film's most awe-inspiring presence is Unni Mukundan as a Swami, who is trekking to Sabarimala. Saiju Kurup, Ramesh Pisharody, Ranji Panicker, TG Ravi, Sreejith Ravi and many other stars are part of this film.
Abhilash Pillai has written the screenplay for this film and the cinematography is done by Vishnu Narayanan. Santosh Verma, B.K. Harinarayanan have written the lyrics, and Ranjin Raj composed the music. Shameer Muhammad is the film's editor. Under the banners of Ann Mega Media and Kavya Film Company, the superhit film is produced by Priya Venu and Neeta Pinto.
