Kutty Srank (translated as baby shark in Malayalam) is a film about a mariner who operates a cargo vessel between the sea port of Kodungalloor near Kochi, once roaring port town in Kerala. One day, the local police station discovers an unidentified body that has washed ashore. A Budhist nun (Revamma ) comes forward to claim that she can identify the rotten body, and she recognises it as that of one kutti Srank. Police enquire her relationhip with Kutti Srank. Meanwhile, another woman (Pemmanna ) too claims to recognize the dead man. Both women assure the investigators that the body is that of Kutti Srank. Finally a dumb woman (Kali) join them and seeks permission to see the corpse. She however rejects the claim made by the other women and argues that the body is not that of Kutti Srank. Pemmanna identifies Kali and tells Revamma that Kali is kutti Srank’s wife. Eventually each woman share their acquaintance and relation with kutti Srank. Kutty Srank ultimately leaves behind a story of a man who convinced three very different women he was a committed and faithful husband while successfully keeping his other two lives a secret. —Wikipedia
