1991, the year when Priyadarshan was searching for a story for his next project. He couldn’t finalize on any stories. That was the time when Fazil was busy shooting ’Ente Sooryaputhrikku’. Priyadarshan met Fazil on shooting site.
Priyan told him that he is stuck without a story. On hearing that Fazil told him “ Ente Eooryaputhrikku is a story based on a daughter on search of her mother. You can try the story of daughter in search of her father.” Even though Fazil wasn’t much serious about what he told, Priyan got a spark from it.
This became Kilukkam. The character played by Revathi is of a daughter in search of her father. Characters like guide Joji, still photographer Nischal and helper Kittunni, all were just paths to the formation of the story.
Ente Sooryaputhrikku and Kilukkam made place in the superhit charts. Even though they both had a similar plot, no one could notice it at a glance. The first one handled the issue in a serious way while the other became an evergreen comedy film.
