A well-known Scenarist of Malayalam films Deedi Damodharan throws light on the travails and glories of Adoor Pankajam, who started her career as an actress in Malayalam theatre. She presented characters in Malayalam films with a difference and received the acclaim of film enthusiasts. She acted in 26 Malayalam films from 1952 to 2002. But theatre remained her chosen medium of self expression and she had a theatre troupe of her own for a longtime. She too is now a sad remembrance for all those who fondly look upon Malayalam Cinema.
