Ennu Ninte Moideen

Synopsis: Set in the 1960s and 70s in Mukkam, Kerala, the film tells the tragic love story of Moideen who belongs to a renowned Muslim family and Kanchana Mala who is the daughter of a Hindu Thiyya aristocratic landlord. Since inter-religious marriages were a taboo then, the couple had to part ways as their families objected to their love affair. Moideen shifted ground to being a socio-political activist and Kanchanamala lived in her house under strict restrictions for 22 years. Both communicated through letters and language they had developed. Eventually Kanchanmala was caught and beaten mercilessly by her conservative relatives. The lovers then finally decide to go to America, for which Moideen arranges passport for Kanchanamala and himself. When he was returning with the passport, Moideen drowns in a boat mishap in the river Iruvazhinjippuzha in July 1982. This shatters Kanchana Mala. Kanchanamala attempts to commit suicide, but Moideen's mother holds her back. She takes Kanchanamala to Moide

My dear girl

Stop...don't go

'ln a Naxalite-attack in West Bengal

a sub-inspector, few policemen...

'...and several others were killed'

'The police are now on a witch-hunt

for Naxal leader Charu Majumdar'

l killed him

'Yours Forever,


'Hail Mary

Full of grace'

'The Lord is with you

Blessed are you among women'

'Blessed is the fruit

of your womb, Jesus'

'Holy Mary, Mother of God

Pray for us sinners'

'Now and at the hour

of our death'

'We pray to you'


Why aren't you attending

the prayer session?

Answer me, girl

Why did you stay away?

l will not attend

prayers hereafter

What audacity!

When everyone else is

attending, why can't you?

Does equality exist only

to matters relating to God?

All of us kneel as equals

and pray in front of God...

...but the food we are served

is discriminated in the canteen

Students from affluent families

are served 'A' class food

Students in the little

lesser bracket get 'B' class

She is Merina, who's being served

'C' class food in this convent

The 'C' class food is arranged by

the Church for poor Catholic students

Then may be Hindus and Muslims

should convert to Christianity?

Leela, put some sense into her

She has a point, sister

lt is difficult for us to sit together

and eat food served differently

When we get back after

our December vacation...

...this issue must be solved

Otherwise we will resort to

other ways of insulting the Church

Don't forget!

After our vacation, we will

deal with the rest of the issue

Hope no one has a problem

to starve tonight?

We are prepared to do

anything you suggest

'Lord Messiah of

the King of miracles'

'Please turn the water

in our stomach...'

'...into 'roti' and chicken'


Come here

- Where the hell were you?

- l was inside

Call the musicians

Okay, father

Festival arrangements

are fantastic, Madhava

Our Goddess should not lack

in any way in being honored

Kottatil festival is as good as

Mukkam celebrating it

We can't do a slipshod job

Ramachandra, did you see

my son anywhere?

Where the hell is he?

What are you doing here?

l...that is, where is Ram'etan?

l was looking for him

He is at the temple

The lamp from the store room

must be placed on the verandah

The workers won't do it

properly, come with me

Come, man


- Hope l am not late

- Not at all


There is a divine strength

l get from here every year

Don't go around

saying this in public

Your people won't tolerate it

even if you are Sultan!

God blesses anyone who

comes to Him with a good heart

Gods are beyond

caste and religion

What is the use of

material wealth, Madhava?

A home should be

filled with good children

ln that respect

you are blessed

Look at your daughters

standing like 6 shining stars

Which one wants

to be a doctor?

The one over there

Studying in Little Flower Convent

A little mischievous

But very studious

We need a doctor in our own

home town, don't we, Sahib?

Sure, we do

Madhava, your children will

become doctors and lawyers

Education is the best asset these days

Why hasn't Moideen come?

lf he was here, he would have

clicked pictures of all this

He knows l'd be here today

lndia is not lndira

That slogan represents autocracy

ln spite of a quarter century

since we got freedom...

...we are seeing only an increasing

number of poverty stricken people

ls this the free lndia

we dreamed of?

We socialists must serve people

with slogans of democracy

Of equality and brotherhood

Our national architect

Nehru was a true democrat

But his daughter lndira?
