Malayali Mamanu Vanakkam is a hilarious comedy film from 2002 featuring the talented Jayaram, Jagathi Sreekumar, and Prabhu. Directed by Rajasenan, the movie revolves around the life of Kaimal (Jayaram) and his family. Kaimal is a Malayali who resides in Chennai and works as a sales representative. He lives with his wife Kokila (Rambha) and their three children - two boys and a girl.

The story begins when Kaimal, who is desperate to visit his hometown in Kerala to attend his sister's wedding, discovers that he has misplaced his identity card. As a result, he is unable to take the train to Kerala. Kaimal is disheartened, but his life changes when he comes across a group of con artists who promise to arrange for his journey to Kerala in exchange for money. But the con artists have their own plans and switch Kaimal with their own lookalike.

What follows is a series of hilarious events as Kaimal finds himself in a completely different situation than he had expected. He meets his doppelganger, whose name is Prabhakaran (also played by Jayaram), and becomes embroiled in his family's affairs. Prabhakaran is a wealthy businessman who is estranged from his family due to a dispute over property. Kaimal, who has been mistaken for Prabhakaran, tries his best to solve the family dispute and reunite Prabhakaran with his family.

Throughout the film, Jayaram showcases his incredible talent for comedy, delivering punchlines with perfect timing and expression. Jagathi Sreekumar adds to the fun with his portrayal of Kaimal's scheming friend. Rambha holds her own as Kaimal's wife, providing stability and support to her husband amidst all the chaos.

The movie is a tribute to the Malayali culture, showcasing the food, traditions, and values of the people of Kerala. The film's theme, the importance of family values, is a universal message that everyone can relate to. The movie's music, composed by M. Jayachandran, is catchy and adds to the overall charm of the film. The song "Mounangal Mulakunna" is particularly memorable, with its beautiful melody and emotional lyrics.
