'Kind attention viewers -'

'- this story takes place before

the closure of bars in Kerala'

'Don't call me a drunkard because

more than the Iiquorl drank'

'Much more I have drank my tears'

- FayazAham med Fayaz

'Paavada' (The skirt)


Greetings, I'm not a character

in this movie, okay

Before the movie begins and in

between there is a story narration, no?

In big movies it is Srinivasan sir and

Renjith sir who does this story narration

For example, when the movie

'Meeshamadhavan' starts

Haven't you heard that

dialogue said by Renjith sir?

On hearing that, it is a kind of thrill

I'm the one who is doing

the narration of this movie

But on asking who are you?

What is your merit for that?

What is the merit for a

drunkard at this toddy shop?

Even by begging or by postponing

the payment, will daily drink

But not only that

To tell the story of 'Pam bu'

(snake) and 'Paavada' (skirt)

The best merit is for

What a form is this?

Lucky that didn't buy

the wall mounting TV

Otherwise would have

turned over the entire wall!

What is this? In the previous

life was he a bat?

Pillaicha, very thirsty

Yeah you'll be thirsty

Yesterday you were drinking

like filling diesel in a tanker lorry

Should have thought on that

Morning you will have

the thirst and giddiness

Doing some stupid things and"!

Pillai, hey man Pillaicha!

Calling Pillai, Pillai now he

will start calling my mother

Hey man Pillaicha

Yeah I'm coming

Hell with it! To kill people

What is it? That is so urgent

Just lift this by holding the hand

If the parents had whacked you

at right time, now you won't do all this

By the way let me ask,

as I don't know -

- does the things in this

house have legs and hands?

Morning TV was 'upside down'

Now the fridge is lying

in 'Anandhashayanam' -

- as if like 'Patmanabaswamy?

And the shoes, one is in 'Pala'

and the other one is in 'Palli...!'

Shucks! Just move

back, move back

My mother!

Bring it, straight

Only this much, very correct

For this one, only"

How did you manage to do this?

At night, I tried to open it

For what?

To make a 'bulls eye'

Shucks! This thing so called egg,

should scold his father who invented it

Look, that eatery fellow is waiting

there - Which eatery guy?

My..My aunt's husband!

You should have consciousness

as little as bed bug!

Yesterday what had

happened in particular

Babu sir, just fire

off that 'Hamlet' speech

Man, who is that guy? - That one,

that is our 'Paavada' (skirt)

He is a peculiar character

What is it sir?

Babu sir, is getting intoxicated

Just have a watch on him

You dirty filthy lawyer

what are you laughing at?

I laughed since it was good

Man, what a nuisance is this?

The ear is getting deafening

Just turn on that TV

I didn't say"

Sit, sit

Pillaicha, let him say what is to

be or not to be - Man, that bill, bill

Fellow, turn off the TV

Is this TV your hereditary property?

To turn it on and off when you say?

My sir, this is not' foot step dance',

several programs will be staged

Just call Suresh sir


Pillaicha, keep quite

Move off man

Buddy here comes the police come fast

Run and come man, come fast

Like that don't blame Babu alone

Those nuisance people

had come and provoked, isn't it?

Look lawyer on drinking if a problem

is created, police can't stand watching

All though it is told to lawyer, can

understand where that needle is poking

Sir, first of all learn to live decently

Should live decently

An adviser!

Pillaicha, I don't like to say like

this to a teacher who taught me

But this kind of character

will lead to a big trouble

Sir, won't he listen?

Don't you know?

Sir, bill

Look, today no

need it is late at night

The bad words that should be told

at the right time, if not it will get bitter

That was a correct hit

Please don't make this son to

pelt stones to a glass window

Look, Pillaicha, opened it

By disdaining the sleep in my life

Aren't you sleeping nicely?

When I was late might

have thought I won't come

It wasn't intentional, urgently

wanted to create a fight

Now I'm going, really

hungry that is why

Don't be happy I

will come tomorrow also

I'll come till I die

If you die, I'll come to your

grave yard and scold you

And if I'm the one who is

dying, I'll come in your dreams

Like a ghost


Right now I'm going

You have told, haven't you?

Come on get in

Look, son you are already drunk,

I'll drive, move to other side

This is my car, what is kept

on this seat is my 'buttocks

I know how to reach

home, with 'both' of this

Come on get in man!


Hey you fellow, Paavada (skirt)

We'll get you, we will deal with you!

Fellow, go home

Go man, you 'Paavada Babu'

Get lost you 'Paavada' (skirt)

My God, Car!

Hey chicken! Coming to

sh*t on other's floor!

Give that cheque

I'll come now

On hearing this 'Paavada' (Skirt) you

must be thinking what a bad name it is

There are drunkards here

with much more bad names

That is very much inside this Kerala

'Pam bu Joy' (Snake Joy)
