Schmidt Memorial in Beasant Nagar beach is the spot where the super hit comedy pair of Ramdas and Vijayan (“Vijayan and “Dasan” in the movie), acted remarkably by The Complete Actor Padmashree Mahanlal and Srinivasan,  supposedly lands in Dubai (both were duped by conman, played by veteran Malayalam actor, Mamukkoya). This scene is in the mega super hit comedy Malayalam movie ‘Nadodikattu‘ released in 1987. This movie’s remake in Tamil by name ‘Kadhanayagan’ was released in 1988.

Meenmutty Falls in Thiruvananthapuram and another Meenmutty Falls  (falls with the same name) at Wayanad, both in Kerala, are two beautiful falls. Gavi near Sabarimala in Pathanamthitta district of Kerala where the super hit Malayalam movie ‘Ordinary’ was shot, which was released in 2012, is one of the best tourism area in India.

Dudhsagar Falls Goa Karnataka Border is one of the most beautiful falls in India. Paradise Beach which is part of Karnataka beaches at Gokarna Beach in Karnataka state are beautiful beaches.

Periyapalayam falls in Andhara Pradesh not far from Andhara – Tamilnadu border, just 10 kilometers ahead of  Puthur.  Puthur or Puthoor is famous for ‘Puthur Kettu’,  a kind of substitute for orthopedic surgery, done locally and is very famous in parts of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamilnadu states.
