Malarvadi Arts Club is a 2010 Indian Malayalam-language romantic-musical comedy drama film written and directed by Vineeth Sreenivasan in his directorial debut, produced by actor Dileep.[5] The film was released in 600 theaters across India. The cast of five young boys and two girls were selected through a talent hunt. The movie was a commercial success at the box office.[3][6]


The story is about the life of 5 friends in a small village called Manissery. They have completed their studies and are all set to move to the next phase of their life. But in the process they face unexpected problems while trying to keep their favourite hangout Malarvadi Arts Club alive.

"Malarvadi Koottam" (Malarvadi guys) are a bunch of trouble makers in the Manassery village. They even act as goons for a Communist party, named Labour Party. The first half of the film is about the pointless lives of these five led by Prakashan(Nivin Pauly). Prakashan has a fiery temperament; he would do anything for the people he loves, for the cause he believes in. In a moment of financial crisis, Kumaran (Nedumudi Venu) (their mentor who formed malarvadi club) makes the group take up music once again. On the way, the best singer Santhosh Damodaran (Geevarghese Eappen) in the group gets a chance to attend a reality show. Predictably, he makes it big, which is followed by misunderstandings, separation and a grand reunion in the end.
