Namukku Parkkan Munthiri Thoppukal (; translation: Vineyards for us to dwell in) is a landmark film in Malayalam cinema written and directed by Padmarajan. The film is noted for its rich and detailed screenplay, expressive cinematography and flowing musical narration. It released in November 1986 and is considered as one of the seminal works of the golden age of Malayalam films that lasted from the late 1980s until the early 1990s.
Namukku Parkkan Munthiri Thoppukal is a warm and lyrical motion picture centred around Malayalee Syrian Christian-Nasrani ("Nazarene") life. It was based on the Malayalam novel Nammukku Graamangalil Chennu Raappaarkkaam (Let us go and dwell in the villages) by K. K. Sudhakaran (1986). The title of the film and novel is based upon a passage from Biblical book of The Song of Solomon or Song of Songs, Chapter 7:12: "Let us get up early to the vineyards." The protagonist quotes this passage at one point during the film. It stars Mohanlal, Shari, Thilakan, Vineeth, and Kaviyoor Ponnamma. The film is especially noted for the brilliant performance of Thilakan and also for the flowing and warm thematic music byJohnson an important South Indiancomposer.
