Thiranottam is the tale of Kuttappan, a mentally disabled servant and the life around him.
Mohanlal's first shoot took place on 3 September 1978 at 11:30 AM on Kesavadev Road, in front of Mohanlal's house in Mudavanmugal, Trivandrum.
The film was made by Mohanlal and his friends, Ashok Kumar (director), Late Sasheendran (Producer), Priyadarshan (Asst.director), Suresh Kumar (clap boy) and the cast were Ravi Kumar, Mohanlal, Renu Chandra, Chandra Mohan and others.
The film was completed and censored, but couldn't release then, eventhough a premier show was arranged. Years later it was released in a single theatre at Kollam.
Recently Mohanlal appealed through Facebook to trace the child actor who done the first shot along with him. He mentioned, There is a boy who shared screen space with me in it. However, I am unable to remember who he was. If any of you know his identity, do come forward and inform me. I really wish to meet him once again
