For those who are unaware of the film's plot, it will trace the ancient story of the rivalry between the Zamorin rulers and Chaaverukal rulers and the end of the 280-year old war. There was another movie in 1979 titled Mamankam that starred Prem Nazir, Jose Prakash, Jayan and Alummoodan in the lead roles. Also some reports mention that Mamangam will have a different storyline than Mamankam.
