Adaminte Makan Abu is a 2011 Indian Malayalam film released on 2011. The film is directed by Salim Ahmed, produced by Salim Ahmed.
This is the story of a married couple who is living in Kerela. They desire to visit Hajj, the pilgrimage of Mecca. So, for this, they sacrifice their lives. Their son has migrated to another country and has left his parents in Kerala. Now the couple decides to earn their living and go for Hajj. But, there is a lot of hard work they need to do. So, one day their friend Hyder comes to help them. He is a teashop owner who tries to help him. But he refuses. Then the couple is helped by a manager but still that doesn’t works. In the end, the couple decides to quit their dreams and put an end to their aspirations of going Hajj. Abu (Salim Kumar) and Aishumma (Zarina Wahab) are an elderly Moplah Muslim couple living in Kerala's Malabar region. Their aspiration is to go for Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca, and they sacrifice to achieve this aim. Their son Sattar has migrated to the Middle East (as a part of Kerala Gulf boom) with his family and has virtually discarded his parents. Now in their late 70s, the couple decide to go for Hajj that year. Abu sells attar (ittar) (a perfume obtained from flowers), religious books and Unani medicines that nobody seems to want nowadays. Aishumma breeds cattle and hens, helping her husband realise their shared dream. Abu feels as outdated and discarded by a fast-changing world as the traditional products that he sells. A school teacher (Nedumudi Venu), Abu's friend, comes to his aid at his time of need. Hyder (Suraj Venharammud), a local teashop owner also empathises with Abu who in turn is frequently given genuine advice by a mysterious saint known simply as "Ustad" (Tampi Antony). Good-natured people try to help Abu by offering to loan him the amount, but as this goes against the accepted Islamic practices, he refuses to take anything. With the advancing years, Abu's desperation also grows. Finally, in frustration and distress, Abu sells his cow and old jackfruit tree. Abu is helped by the manager of a travel agency (Mukesh) to get flight tickets and other documents for his journey. A policeman (Sasi Kalinga) initially tries to reject Abu's passport application, but once he gets his usual bribe he becomes quite helpful. The couple begins their preparations which include attending the Hajj preparation classes conducted by the travel agency, being vaccinated for meningococcal meningitis and buying new Ihram clothing. Abu pays off even the smallest of his old debts as part of the preparations and travels miles to seek forgiveness from Sulaiman, a previous neighbour with whom he once fought.When the passports and the tickets are ready and a bus journey away in Kozhikode, the sawmill owner (Kalabhavan Mani), while handing over the money for Abu's tree, says that its wood turned out to be rotten and useless. He insists that Abu still take the money, however, since his cause is noble. Abu refuses it, saying that it wouldn't be halal and hence could anger God. When he is sure that he cannot fulfill his dream, Abu reaches another conclusion Check out this page for more updates on Adaminte Makan Abu.
