A book on Aranmula Ponnamma by Vijayakrishnan
A well-known film critic, Vijayakrishnan portrays in brief the life and contributions of Aranmula Ponnamma to Malayalam Cinema. She started her career as an actress in the theatre but soon became a part of Malayalam Cinema which she mellowed with her modest and noble presence. The image of a loving mother that she bestowed on film after film for sixty years will remain green forever in the minds of Keralites. Government bestowed J C Daniel Award for 2005 on her.
