Kunni (Malayalam: കുന്നി ) is an Indian Malayalam musical short film released on 21 February 2019. It was directed by Nikhil TT, who also wrote the script. Nikhil Chandran was music director and sang.[1] The lead role was played by Arun Narayanan.[2]


The film begins with a student, Hari, waiting anxiously for his friend, Kunni. When Kunni finally arrives on his bicycle, Hari eagerly asks him how it went. Kunni tries to explain that this time too he was unable to give the chocolate bar to the girl he likes. Hari tries to give Kunni the confidence he needs.[2]

A poor woman's crying baby has been irritating people at a nearby stall. At this juncture the woman approaches the two boys and gives the baby to Kunni, saying she will be right back. Unable to comprehend her Hindi, the boys go into a panic and Hari runs after her, leaving Kunni with the crying baby.[3] Kunni, remembering a lullaby from his childhood, begins to sing to the baby. As he does so, the baby calms down and falls asleep. When the mother returns with milk, all is calm and Kunni returns the child to her. From her few Malayalam words and Hindi, everyone comes to understand that she is an itinerant musician and the baby is actually her sister's who died in an accident. When the next bus arrives, she is helped onto it.[4]

The girl Kunni likes witnessed the scene and she expresses her approval. Instead of giving her the chocolate, Kunni decides to give it to the woman with the baby, and the two friends walk away.[5]
