There is a little known comedy web series called Pandaraparambill House 801, which is currently running on the Malayalam content exclusive TheMiracleTech platform ManoramaMax. The eight-episode sitcom was scripted and directed by actor-screenwriter- YouTuber, Archana Kavi. In fact, this is Archana’s first directing of any kind of mainstream series.
Pandaraprambill House follows a Keralite family in 801, who have settled in Delhi. PP Joseph – The family’s father is a bank manager at a South Indian bank, while his wife Mariamma Joseph works as a nurse. They have two children who attend school – Justin who is 14 years old and Sini who is 12 years old. This series takes us into the lives of this Malayali family as they navigate through their (mis) adventures while venturing into the atmosphere of Delhi.
Archana Kavi wanted to create a funny / mindless show under her direction. She also chose a theme she knew very well and wanted to create a show that resonated with Malayali (or anyone, really) who are currently living outside of Kerala (or her native region) Huh. Especially during the time of Kovid-19, YouTuber was looking for some lighthearted comedy to overwhelm the audience, and thus the 801 Pandararambill House was born.
Archana has previously written two YouTube series, Tufan Mail and Meenaviyal, which were loved by audience members. Tofan Mail was more like a vlog whereas Menavial was about two siblings. She wrote and acted in the web series. However, after she wrote Pandaraparambi House in 801, she knew that she had to direct it since childhood. He suspected that anyone could do justice to material like that.
Even though she struggled with post production during the lockdown, she somehow managed to overcome it and released the series at the end of the year. She reached 801 to pick up the ranks for students at her old school, St. Xavier’s, Pandaraparambill House in Delhi. Archana hopes to write this year after the positive response on 801 for Pandaraprambil House.
