Kumbalangi Nights was one of the sweetest and most appreciated Malayalam movies of the year. It showed the life of four brothers from a dysfunctional family and how they bring their life on track after they find love. There was a scene in the film which showed the brothers going to their mother who abandoned them to follow the spiritual path. They call her to come along and to stay at their home to which the lady refuses. The scene was an iconic one which showed that moms too need to follow their heart and not always toil for their family. In reality, the mom's role was enacted by PM Lali, writer and social activist and mom of young actress Anarkali Marikkar.
