Akale is a 2004 Malayalam film by Shyamaprasad, inspired by the American classic play The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams. The movie stars Prithviraj Sukumaran, Sheela, Geetu Mohandas and Tom George Kolath in lead roles.


The film is the story about an Anglo-Indian family who lives in Kerala. Neil (Prithviraj Sukumaran) is a disturbed youth working as a clerk in a factory for low wages. His intention is to become a writer. He lives with his mother (Sheela) and sister (Geetu Mohandas). His father was a Portuguese sailor who left the family when the children were very young. Rose, his sister is slightly handicapped and because of this, she is always in her shell. She is very much interested in glass figurines. Margret, Neil's mother hates his care-free attitude towards life and his late-night movies. She is a very possessive mother and she is always worried about the future of her daughter. One day Neil invites his co-worker Freddy (Tom George Kolath) for a dinner at his home. Neil's mother and daughter thinks that Freddy will get interested in Rose and they can marry her off but their dreams get crushed when they comes to know that Freddie is already engaged and Rose passes away years later.
