Unniyarcha is a famed heroine from the old ballads of Kerala, a state located at the south-western most tip of India. Unniyarcha’s exploits can be found in the Vadakkan Paattukal, which are the northern ballads of the Malabar region. The ballads speak of Unniyarcha as a warrior. And today she is considered a famous female icon produced by Malayalam literature.
Unniyarcha is revered for her bravery, her beauty, her independence, and her insane kalaripayattu skills, which is a Malabar martial art form that is practiced extensively even today. But most importantly, at least important to this episode is that Unniyarcha is known for two things – Her undying loyalty to her clan; and… her horrific revenge against the man who killed her brother.
