The first talkie movie in Malayalam “Balan” was an amaze to cine goers in Kerala, and in theaters’ hundreds of people seated and viewed wondered seeing the movie Balan.It was an unbelievable new experience and the movie Balan was a success.

Thikkurissi Sukumaran Nair was the hero and Jeevitha Nauka, the movie became very popular in south India. Perhaps this film has started the trend to call “super hits” to successful movies and the history of super hits starts from Jeevitha Nauka. The extreme success of Jeevith Nuaka became inspired to other aspirants to invest in producing Malayalam movies.  But, the subject were same structured and the success wouldn’t happened soon again.   So many are come to produce movies with socio relevant subjects and the Malayalam cinema witness the entry of many powerful actors like Kottarakkara Sreedharan Nair and Satyan. They were acted in many films and all are with family subjects. Sathyan has proved, he was a legendary actor.
