Chungakkarum Veshyakalum (Malayalam: ചുങ്കക്കാരും വേശ്യകളും, English: The Tax Collectors and the Prostitutes) is a Canadian-Indian co-production in Malayalam language.[1] Written, directed, co-produced and co-edited by Isaac Thomas, it stars veteran Malayalam actor Thilakan in the lead role supported by Sanjay George and Anu Thahim.[2]

The film started its production on 30 October 2007,[1] and got released in Kerala in August 2011.[3]


Chungakkarum Veshyakalum is the story of a Malayali family who emigrated to Canada some years back. Later Unnunnichayan (Thilakan) goes to Canada to stay with his son. He is from a village in Kerala and finds it difficult to adjust with the Canadian lifestyle. He faced difficulties since he does not know English or the Canadian people. On occasions, even his son got angry with him for his mistakes or ignorant behaviour.
