Thoovalsparsham (transl.Feather touch) is a 1990 Indian Malayalam-language film directed by Kamal and written by Kaloor Dennis. [1] The film stars Jayaram, Mukesh, Sai Kumar and Suresh Gopi. It was inspired by the 1987 American film Three Men and a Baby , which itself was based on the 1985 French film Three Men and a Cradle . Thoovalsparsham was remade in Telugu in 1990 as Chinnari Muddula Papa and twice in Tamil - in 1991 as Thayamma and in 2001 as Asathal.



Three bachelors Unnikrishnan (Jayaram), Boney (Mukesh) and Vinod (Sai Kumar). They drink frequently, of which their brahmin neighbour Ananthapadmanabhan (Suresh Gopi) complains. One day, while Boney is away, Unnikrishnan and Vinod find a baby girl on their doorstep, with a note asking them to care for the chikd. They manage to cover it up and suspect that it is an illegitimate child of Boney. When Boney returns, they give him the child and lock themselves up in their room. Boney confesses that he has never had any such affair with a woman and they conclude that the girl is an orphan, but no orphanage accepts her. They try to abandon the child but fail. They hand her to a man who claims he will take her to Germany, only to find out that he is a fraud. They fight him and get the baby back. They appoint a babysitter (Innocent).

An old man (Bahadoor) visits saying that the child is the illegitimate daughter of his daughter Maya (Urvashi) and Ananthapadmanabhan, whom they had believed to be completely innocent. Maya wants her daughter desperately, but the trio are unwilling to return her. The trio uncover surprising secrets about the relationship between Ananthapadmanabhan and Maya, which later broke. After a lot of disturbance from Maya and her father, they reluctantly return the child on a condition that Maya and Ananthapadmanabhan must live together with the child, and end up dull and depressed.
