Pookkalam Varavayi is 1991 Malayalam film directed by Kamal starring Jayaram, Sunitha, Shamili, Murali, and Geetha. Divya Unni and Kavya Madhavan made their debuts in this movie. Dileep also made his debut as the assistant director in this movie.[1]

The story is by P. R. Nathan and screenplay by Ranjith. This movie is about the friendship between a school bus driver who is struggling after the death of his niece and a school girl.


Five-year-old Geethu's (Shamili) parents (played by Murali and Geetha) get divorced, so she now lives with her mom and spends a few days with her dad by the court's order. She becomes friendly with Nandan (Jayaram), the driver of her school bus.

During her vacation, Geethu decides to go to Nandan's village without informing her parents. Nandan's sister (played by Rekha) had recently lost her daughter, who was the same age as Geethu, when she drowned in the village river. Nandan's lover is Thulasi (Sunitha). Geethu wins the heart of everyone in the village and becomes the center of attention there. Meanwhile, her parents are worried about their missing child and are searching for her everywhere. Finally, they learn where Geethu is and come to the village to retrieve her. Geethu also falls into the river — the same way Nandan's niece drowned — but is rescued by Nandan. The tension and anxiety unite her parents and they decide to live together again.



The film's soundtrack contains 5 songs, all composed by Ouseppachan. Lyrics by Kaithapram Damodaran Namboothiri, Bichu Thirumala and Sasi Chittanjoor.
