Malyalam script writer Sarangapani dies

He mostly wrote stories and scripts for movies made by producer-director late Kunchacko under the banner of Udaya Studios. Many of his films of 1960s and 1970s had been huge hits.

His successful scripts included those based on folklore of Malabar, known as 'Vadakkan Pattukal', dealing with the lives and times of folk heroes and heroines like Thacholi Othenan, Unniyarcha and Aromalunni.

He also wrote scripts for several social theme-based films like 'Manishada' and 'Thara'.
A dramatist, who began his career with the Leftist stage movement, Sarangapani was active in the Communist movement in his early life. But later, he left politics to devote his creative talents to writing film scripts.

His popular films included 'Unniyarcha', 'Othenante Makan', 'Kannappanunni' and 'Araomalunni', most of them with the evergreen Malayalam matinee idol late Prem Nazir in the lead role.

His last film was the Mohanlal starrer Kadathanatan Ambadi. He was the recipient of several awards in his lifetime.
