The story revolves around two brothers – Dharmadurai, an uneducated blue-collar worker who works relentlessly to improve the financial status of his family but is not taken seriously by his loved ones and his brother Kalaiarasan, an educated professional who is loved and respected by everyone around him. The show unfolds as the two brothers are in a quest for love and companionship. The twist in the plot is when the beautiful Mahalakshmi enters their lives. While Kalaiarasan and Mahalakshmi are engaged to be married, fate has other plans in place as Dharmadurai unknowingly comes in the way and this relationship comes to a bitter end.
The character of the lead hero, Dharmadurai, is played by the actor Munish Rajan from Zee Tamil’s Yaaradi Nee Mohini, while actor Pandi Kamal plays the role of his brother, Kalaiarasan, who is making his Zee Tamil debut with this role. The vivacious actress from Zee Kannada’s fiction show Mahanadi,Tejaswini Shekar, will be portraying the role of Mahalakshmi. Notable actors who can be seen playing other important characters include actors Vanitha, Janaki, Balambika and Jayamani to name a few.
Mullum Malarum is produced under the banner of Rajamal Creations and is produced by Manogar.
Speaking on the new launch, a channel spokesperson said, “With our growing commitment towards satiating the entertainment needs of our diverse set of viewers, we, at Zee Tamil are focused on presenting unique content that have narratives like no other. Mullum Malarum is yet another feather in our fiction cap where the plot is carefully crafted for our viewers where they get a perfect mix of drama, entertainment and emotions.”
Commenting on playing the role of Dharmadurai, Munish Rajan said, “Dharmadurai is a multifaceted character who is constantly caught between his responsibilities and his desires; however, family takes precedence all the time. As the story progresses, viewers will start to notice that there are layers to the character and this is what makes it interesting. I am extremely excited to be playing a lead read role for the very first time and I hope the viewers enjoy watching Mullum Malarum and continue to support and encourage me through this journey as well.”
Adding further, Tejaswini Shekar portraying the role of Mahalakshmi said, “This is my Tamil small-screen debut and it has been a great experience so far. While Mahalakshmi is a beautiful girl looking to get married to the love of her life, a sudden turn of events makes it difficult for her to cope with life. Her relationship with Dharmadurai as the story unfolds is the crux of the story and I am sure that it will keep the viewers guessing. I am extremely excited to be working with Zee Tamil on such a distinct storyline and I hope that it will appeal to the viewers.”
Mulum Mallarum will be telecasted every Monday to Friday starting 27th November 2017 at 6:30 p.m. on Zee Tamil
