‘Thuramukham is centered around a harbour and the lives of coastal people. The story is set in the Cochin harbour in the 1950s. It is based on the historic protests against the inhuman ‘chappa’ system, that existed during the 50s wherein copper coins were thrown at waiting workers in a primitive ‘work guarantee’ scheme, which had resulted in police firing and killing of three workers in Mattancherry.
KM Chidambaran had earlier written a play named ‘Thuramukham’. The playwright’s son, Gopan Chidambaram, the co-writer of ‘Iyobinte Pusthakam’, has penned the screenplay.
