Angene Oru Avadhikkalathu (transl. In that vacation) is a 1999 Indian Malayalam-language drama film directed by Mohan and written by Sreenivasan from a story by Nedumudi Venu. It stars Sreenivasan, Samyuktha Varma, and Mukesh. The music was composed by Johnson. Angene Oru Avadhikkalathu won two Kerala State Film Awards: Best Music Director and Best Female Singer.
Balakrishnan ("Bala") is a history teacher, working in an elementary school in a hillside village. Nirmala has been newly recruited for the temporary job of music teacher in the same school. Balakrishnan falls in love with Nirmala, but his timid nature prevents him from expressing his feelings. To get close to Nirmala, Bala decides to accompany her on a trip to her native village. On the way, Bala meets his friend Babu, whom he has not seen for a long time.
Babu takes Nirmala and Bala to a hotel. There, Nirmala faints, and Bala calls a doctor. When she recovers, Nirmala urges Bala to drop her at the bus stand. Bala agrees, seeing that she is upset. Teena arrives, saying that she has been harassed by her father's close friend, Papachan, who wants her to sleep with a rich friend of his. Petrified, she approaches Bala for help. Bala and Nirmala ask Teena to accompany them, and she agrees.
Along their way, the group is attacked by goons, and Teena is injured. Bala is accused of assaulting Teena. To save herself, even Nirmala accuses Bala, and this profoundly saddens him. Bala is sent to jail.
On Bala's return from prison, he meets Nandakumar ("Nanda") on the bus, and tells him the entire story. The two become great friends, and Nanda arranges a good job for Bala. Bala is unaware that Nanda is to be engaged to Nirmala.
A series of events leads to Nirmala and Bala meeting again. Bala questions Nirmala as to why she gave the false statement when they were attacked. Nirmala claims that Papachan had brainwashed her to do so. The misunderstanding is cleared up. Nanda learns of the relationship between Nirmala and Bala, and asks Nirmala whether she still has feelings for Bala. Nirmala tearfully says yes. Nanda parts from the couple, leaving them to reconcile.
