There are only a few movies in Malayalam, which are acted by Sivaji.
The life of a fatherless being in this typical society is too hard. This subject was handled by some movies too. This is the central highlight of Oru Yatramozhi. This is to suggest that in contexts where a father figure is absent, a family is more likely to produce children who suffer from social, educational and legal deficiencies which can manifest in some rather devastating ways. The problem of illegitimacy is a significant indicator of the challenges which will be faced by certain children.
Those who are born to single mothers not only lack access to many of the psychological needs fulfilled by an effectively compassionate male figure but will also miss the practical needs which are addressed by the presence of a two parent home. The after effect of such childhood are not much good. The continuous irritation and torture from his or her family members and friends makes the child go worse this is the central idea of this Malayalam cinema.
