Madhu Muttom is a popular script writer in Kerala, India. His second film as a script writer was the critically acclaimed Malayalam blockbuster Manichitrathazhu (1993) which was huge commercial success in Kerala. The film fetched Sobhana the National Award for Best Actress. The film was remade in Kannada as Apthamitra and in Tamil as Chandramukhi, and finally in Hindi as Bhool Bhulaiyaa.
Madhu Muttom was born as the only child to Kunju Panicker, a farmer in Haripad. His father died when he was 13. His mother also died a few years ago. Madhu Muttom is unmarried and currently lives alone in the village of Muttom in Haripad.
Madhu's first film, Kakkothikkavile Appooppan Thaadikal (1986) was also a hit. Madhu Muttom is a scriptwriter who entered the history of Malayalam cinema with his work in a single film. The phenomenal success in box office and among critics of his earlier film Manichithrathaazhu in 1994 is largely credited to Madhu Muttom, who remained silent for too long even after such a hit. Madhu tried a comeback in 2007 with a science fiction film - a rare breed in Mollywood. The film titled Bharathan is the second venture by the director Anil Das who debuted by Sargavasantham in 1995. Bharathan Effect was however blasted by the critics and became a box office bomb.
