Manjurugumkaalam has been written by Joycee and is being directed by Binu Vallathooval for the production house Rohini Vision. Another popular show by the same production house also written by Joycee – Amala had a 416 episode run.

The story is based out of one of the most followed Manorama Weekly novels says the channel. The tale revolves around Janikutty, and her struggles as an adopted kid on the death of her mother. Janikkutty’s life becomes agonising and filled with hardships when her adoptive mother Ratnamma delivers her own baby. Her own father takes her back after he realises the sufferings of his daughter.
