Mr. Marumakan Malayalam Movie Story
Dileep appears as Ashokraj, who is the heir of the family owning one of the most famous drama troupes of yesteryears- Bharatha Kalakshethram. Ashok is the younger son of Rajagopalan Thampy, played by Nedumudi Venu. Thampy is the current organiser of the defunct drama troupe which is based in Ottappalam. Ashok Raj shows his interest in reviving the troupe, though he is a lawyer by proffession. The troupe, once was a inevitable voice in the drama arena has been into deep waters when Dileep comes. As the first step to bring 'Bharathakalakshetram' to the mainstream again, Ashok starts directing and playing the lead of a play titled 'Dasavatharam'. To fit to the culture of the new generation drama system, Ashok alters his name to Ashok Chakravarthy. The troupe resumes its funcions well, but soon, financial problems start to push the trupe into troubles.
As a fuel to the fire Ashok's elder brother Baburaj (Biju Menon), an MBA holder, who runs a company which is now in a financial mess also enters to the scene. The entire family gets surrounded by debts and debtors. Everyone except Ashok gets very much upset and seem to be helpless. Now enters Balasubrahmanyam (Bhagyaraj), a bank officer who is in charge to initiate legal proceedings against Babu Raj and his company. The Bunglaw of the family is to be confiscated, since it was given as guarantee for the loan Baburaj has taken. It gets revealed that Balasubrahmanyam also has family problems as he is estranged from his egotistic wife Raja Mallika (Khushboo) and family. Mallika is a member of a wealthy family and is the daughter of haughty Raja Kokila (Sheela). Raja Kokila is the boss of Raja's group of companies. Balasubrahmanyam and Raja Mallika has a daughter Raja Lakshmi (Sanusha), who has completed her degree in fashion designing. She is also like her mother and grandmother, a little bit arrogant.
The trio, having too much of self confidence believes that women can easily lead the life, without the help of men. This makes Ashok Raj think and he decides play cards to make the bank officer delay the bank procedures. He enters in the lives of everyone and that make the ladies rethink of their principles. Parallely Ashok and Raja Lakshmi form interests in each other. The whole story is presented with the touch of humour.
Mr. Marumakan has got an ensemble cast including Dileep, Sanusha, Bhagyaraj, Sheela, Khushboo, Biju Menon, Nedumudi Venu and Suraj Venjaramoodu with others. It is supposed to hit the theatres as a deepavali release.
