Njan Marykutty (2018) | Malayalam

 Ranjith Sankar's Njan Marykutty might or might not be the first Malayalam movie to have a transperson as the main character, but it surely is the first to treat such a character with dignity and respect. Marykutty (Jayasurya) was born a man, but aspires to be, and dresses, like a woman. She is in the process of a sex change, which, the character, informs, is no overnight process though. Marykutty's greatest wish is to join the police force, and she has a loyal circle of friends in support, but obstacles are many, in terms of the red tape involved, and society in general in the form of a police officer played by Joju George. Marykutty is sensitive by nature but determined to fight it out and refuses to take the insults and humiliation thrown her way - more often than not, she is referred to as 'that thing'. However, it's the hostility from her own family that causes real heartache for Marykutty, something she is determined to overcome as well. The trauma of the family of transpeople is also something the film explores.
