Malli is a Tamil TV serial getting aired in PuthuYugam channel from Monday to Friday at 6.30 PM. The mega serial is successfully running to complete its 200th day of telecast. As the serial makers claim, Malli is not like a normal serial taken for kids which would usually contain a lot of special effects and super natural plot. Instead, they say, that the serial actually talks about the issues faced by the kids in their lives.
The story revolves around two characters, Shivani and Bala. Shivani born in a rich family who gets neglected from the parental love since their parents run after money and profession. But she manages to get brotherly love from Bala who hails from a middle class family. Bala imagines Shivani as his older sister Malli who's dead. Getting the affection needed, Shivani too think herself as Malli at times.
Shivani's parents are not in favor of Shivani's bond with Bala. They ask her to stay away from him. This shatters the kid's mind entirely. She starts acting as Malli and goes to an extent of staying with Bala's family which scares Shivani's parents. They go for consulting a child psychiatrist to make Shivani normal. Did they succeed in their attempt and what happens to Shivani are unveiled in the forthcoming episodes of the serial.
The cast of the serial includes Sandra, Theni Murugan, Sethu Darwin, Murali Suchitra Anandan, Krishnakumari and Baby Harini along with others. The serial is penned by Thamira and directed by AR Ramesh.
