Old Malayalam Cinema is a place to discuss, converse, bounce-off, review, examine and be proud of the great legacy of Kerala’s movie culture – something that makes us uniquely special from everyone else.
This is an effort in that direction, to collate and compile as much information to share about Old Malayalam Cinema online, for every inquisitive soul looking to spend some time soaking in the sepia years.
About Copyright of Media used here.
I have tried my level best to mention accrediting actual , available sources of photographs and scanned images that have been used under relevant posts here. Those that aren’t are either from my private collection or those which I haven’t yet tracked down their respective, original sources to be credited. The screenshots from the movies are used under the “Fair Usage” clause for sharing information, and the rest are under the Creative Commons License.
There have been so many instances where pictures from this blog have been shamelessly “branded” with personal watermarks and “flaunted” as their own discoveries.
If you are one of those reading this, please take a moment to understand the effort and the time spent to source and bring that photograph to this public domain with the only good intention of making it part of the shared knowledge. Also, do you really think putting on your watermark makes it your own ? You are willingly putting yourself out on the block for future legal action by the original copyright holders, if they decide to initiate action.
The Videos featured here.
The videos shared across the posts in this blog are shared from popular video-sharing sites, made available by the respective uploaders at their own risk of being infringing on copyright. Those ones that are featured as integral part of this blog are from personal archives of collectors, those of which have not yet had any copyrights raised, and also shared from their personal video channels. I deeply respect any claim of copyright violations if found at the site and will abide by the existing rules for corrective action. Yes, it sounds a mouthful, but there are some lines, I would rather choose not to cross in the pursuit of sharing information.
