Udayapuram Sulthan is a 1999 action comedy Malayalam movie starring Dileep. It is the story of a grandfather who is also a ruler. It tells the relationship between him and his daughter.

Avittam Thirunal Narayana Varma (Narendra Prasad) who is a former leader and a doting grandfather had a daughter named Malavika Thampuratti (Ambika) who walked out of the palace after falling for Abdul Rahman (Captain Raju). He always clashed with his brothers. Sulaiman (Dileep) was nurtured in Carnatic classical music by his mother. His opponent in college, Unnikrishnan (Sudheesh) who is the son of a Brahmin saint is good at singing. Unnikrishnan wins a musical competition at college which makes him sing at the famous Chembai Sangeethotsavam, but Sulaiman, in a mistake of identities, finally makes it to the musical gala. He becomes so famous among the people due to his singing that the viewers start to appreciate him a lot.

Sulaiman is forced to go to his grandfather's place to join a religious function. But there Gopika (granddaughter) falls for Sulaiman instead of Unnikrishnan. In the end, we see that history repeats itself. Whether the palace will get a sultan or not? This forms the remaining story of the film.


It was remade in Telugu as Dhenikaina Ready starring Vishnu Manchu and Hansika Motwani in 2012.[1] The movie was dubbed in Malayalam as 'Endhinum Ready' and was released simultaneously with Telugu on 24 October 2012. It was also remade in Bengali titled Khiladi.


Both the music of the songs and lyrics were written by Kaithapram Damodaran Namboothiri.[2]
