DAWN VISUAL MEDIA   produces a documentary on Madambu Kunjukuttan who is well known in the cultural field of Kerala and is a multi - faceted personality. On the occasion of his 70th birthday celebrations, his friends, disciples and well-wishers gather together to pay their tributes to him through this venture. The switch on ceremony of the the film was commenced with the lighting of traditional lamp by Mahakavi Akkitham at 10 am on 28-03-2012 at Lakshmi Auditorium , Thekkemadom , Thrissur.  The first vice president of FIYAF Mr P V Gangadharan switched on the film. Adv. Therambil Ramakrishnan M L A , K.V.Abdul khadar M L A,I.Shanmughadas, Jayaraj Varyar,  V Muraleedharan , K B Sreedevi, Ashtamoorthi, had  graced the occasion. 

                                          Madambu Kunjukuttan needs no introduction to the reading public of Kerala. A well known novelist, dramatist, script – writer and actor, he is also known as a sincere public activist. He wears no mascot both in his public and personal life. He is a commoner among the great and a great man among the common men- A man of no prejudices he shares his thoughts straight away from his heart.  An ardent scholar of the Vedas and a devout practitioner of the Thantric rituals but still conscious of the fluctuations and frailities of human life, he enjoys every bit of his existence. His foray into the literary world is actually an extension of his search for realization of soul. He is not bothered whether they fetch for him the recognition of acclaims of the critics of literature.   This documentary is a humble attempt to get sense of this extra-ordinary genius of our times whose life is steeped in research, revolt and rituals.
