A regressive melodrama deploying all the myths about motherhood to make a plea on behalf of children born out of wedlock. Sethu (Naik) and Vinod (Gopi), distraught by the death of their own child, focus all their emotions on their adopted child, little Mamattukuttiyama, Tintu for short (Shalini). However, Tintu’s real father Alex (Mohanlal) reclaims the child, explaining that his wife Mercy (Jayaram) had been forced to give away the illegitimate child and had gone insane as a result. Only reunification with her daughter will cure her. Overcoming her feelings, Sethu in the end personally hands over the child to its biological mother. Fazil remade the film in Tamil as En Bommu Kutti Ammavukku (1988). It was also an instance of the negative roles Mohanlal played in his early career.
