The House

The Malayalee House is built exclusively for the show at a Film Studio in Hyderabad owned by Actor Nagarjuna.. The house is traditional, well-furnished and equipped but all the rooms remain closed in the beginning of the show. The open area at the center of the house (Nadumuttam) is the center place for all Malayalee house activities.

The house is installed with LCD displays/speakers through which instructions are given to the contestants. The cameras are even hidden behind mirrors. The contestants has already named all the cameras and the main camera is called "Kanthaari".


The show consists of 16 ‘residents’ who live together with the main intention of creating a home out of the space provided to them. At the start of the show, the residents move into a house wherein the courtyard and garden areas are only open for use. As the weeks pass by, the residents must open out the remaining portions of the house, by evicting themselves unanimously with the help of a live audience who will enter the house to facilitate this process.While all the rules have never been told to the audience, the most prominent ones are clearly seen. The inmates are asked to converse only in Malayalam. They are not supposed to tamper with any of the electronic equipment or any other thing in the House. They cannot leave the House premises unless they are evicted or due special reasons (e.g. medical). The contestants are assigned various tasks by the show makers from time to time. The tasks include cleaning the house, daily news reading and other entertainment activities.

Eviction & Wildcard reentry of Santhosh Pandit[edit]

The hosts of the show decided to invite public poll for eviction of housemates from the 5th week onwards. But one of the housematesSanthosh Pandit, who was having the maximum audience support was allowed to evicted in the 4th week by the housemates. The audience of the show widely claim that this was a pre-planned move by hosts of the show, to evict Santhosh Pandit. The public support suggested that Santhosh is perhaps better off than some of the other participants who have been exposed through the show.[3] Later the makers of the show admitted that evicting Santhosh was a mistake.[4] The makers of the show surprised the audience and also the housemates by bring back Santhosh Pandit as a wildcard entry to house at the end of the 5th week in a dramatic way. Santhosh Pandit was introduced back, by lowering him from the top with the help of a crane.[2]
