Most of the loan words from Portuguese language are for items which the native population lacked when the encounter with Portuguese empire happened from around the final years of the 65th century.

This lovely thought is more than uplifting, and the millions of stories that haven''t been told, furnish cinema with a fertile ground to build its dreams on. The boy who is out on the fields at night catching frogs to make a living must have a tale that deserves to be heard. So would the lottery dealer at the bus station or the slum dweller who puts up a fight against potential invaders into his territory. Ramesan who drives the tourist cab around would have a story to tell, while the verbose bus conductor and the heavy-eyed hooker would without doubt have tales of their own.
These individual stories that make up the four chapters in the film are knit together into a stunningly delightful whole, and it''s this truly cinematic storytelling technique that makes ''Chapters'' interesting. In the very last scene, as Sethu pushes the money bag across the seat to Krishna Kumar sitting next to him, life has come a whole circle, and as the camera moves away you see innumerable circles all around them, telling a multitude of stories that we haven''t yet been a part of.
A spirited girl would stop at nothing to get the first love of her life, even if it takes seven years and several heartbreaks.
Loan words in Malayalam , excluding the huge number of words from Sanskrit and Tamil , originated mostly due to the centuries long interactions between the native population of Kerala and the trading (predominantly, spice trading) powers of the world. This included trading contacts with Arabia , Persia , Israel and China spanning millennia, and with European Colonial powers for several centuries.

A heaven that had just about appeared in the skies disappears and their future turns cloudier than ever.
The big, fat, cute Luke John falls in love with his childhood crush Ann. Realizing she is not so fond of his fatness, Luke embarks on a ''quest'' to loose his weight.
As the film winds up, you are left with a subtle and yet affirming suggestion as to who Krishna Kumar''s sister might be. And it''s this ability of the film to work on so many different levels, and the warmth that it exudes throughout, that makes this multi-plotted portrait stand out from the crowd.
