Amrita TV gears up for Onam
Refreshes programming from August 20-27 as a warm- up to the main festivities of Onam

Amrita TV lays out a floral carpet of programmes from August 20-27, as a warm- up to the main festivities of Onam.

Just as the delicate white Thumbapoo marks the arrival of Chingam, Kavikal Kavithakal begins each day’s celebrations with splendid eulogies in verse and rhyme to the spirit and grandeur of Onam by eminent bards of Malayalam at 7.30 am.
Reminiscent of the Sankhupushpam whose praises have been sung from ancient times, Kalashetrangal tours our magnificent temples, well-springs of art and culture to pay homage to our illustrious legacy at 8.30 am.
Bringing to mind the irresistible beauty of the rose-petaled Thamara, Laasyam unfolds into a compilation of Mohiniyattom performances at 9.00am, in which young danseuses carry out with sensuous grace, the temple dance of the temptress.

Comparable to the Mukkutti, those little clusters of golden yellow that adorns the countryside during Onam, Kaliyude Kaliyarangu, assortments of the best song and dance sequences from Amrita Awards Functions will delight the senses for one hour at 9.30 am.
In the same genre as the Asoka flower, that literally ‘gives no grief’, Pottichiriyude Kukuma Pattu at 11.30 am, picks aces from Amrita TV’s comedy spools to present skits high on hilarity and brimming with grins, to wipe away woes from those who love their laughs and guffaws.

Akathalathile Ona Kazhchakal at 12 noon surprises political bigwigs of Kerala at their hearths, in the bosom of their families as Ramesh Chennithala, Thiruvanchuiyoor Ramakrishnan share their festival moments from their personal lives; Anoop Jacob basks in the thrill of his first ministerial festival since assuming office and Premachandran hops back through a blur of memories to fiercely fought pookalam competitions and Thiruvonam feast with his father, the only day of the year the taciturn father allowed his children to lunch with him.

Steeped in our folklore and culture like the Holy Basil, Ona Sadhya at 12.30 pm , with Pazayidom Mohanan Namboothiri and serial actress Kavitha Nair at the helm, return to the fundamentals of the Onam feast to serve back-to-the basics traditional Ona payasams and conventional curries in all its vegetarian glory . Giving step-by-step instructions on the preparation of these rare dishes, they even offer sweet relief to diabetic patients denied the delicious desserts of Onam, in the form of Mulayari payasam. While Nature paints the courtyards bright with splashes of Chembarathi red, pink, white & yellow, Campus Onakkalam roams through the college campuses across the State at 5.00 pm to join students festoon the grounds in the shades of fun and gaiety as the Utsav ambience resounds through the classrooms and corridors.

Apart from the above programming line-ups, the channel is showcasing vintage movies from master directors throughout the week.
