A number of Malayalam films have also been shot in this area like Kunjikoonan (2002 film), Vasanthiyum Lakshmiyum Pinne Njaanum, Vismayathumbathu, Drishyam, Kadha Parayumbol, Rasathanthram. Malankara dam, which is a hydro electric power plant located in Muttom, uses this place as its catchment area.
