Synopsis : The character Chhota Chetan is formed on the basis of the specialties of a deity who is being worshiped mainly in the south Indian state Kerala. There are cruel magicians everywhere in the world. One of them is the Karimbhootham (black magician) who enslaved an invisible spirit with his magic spells whom he calls Chhota Chetan ( Little Ghost in English and Kuttichathan in Malayalam ). Two boys and a girl befriend Chhota Chetan by accident and release him from the grip of the magician. They understand that this Chetan is friendly to kids and is a very good friend. Therefore the girl promises to keep Chetan in a house for two reasons - One her father drinks too much so she wants Chetan who is a very good magician to make him himself as her mother has died there is no one to control him & Second Chetan being a small boy also drinks a lot. He could drink all that her father drinks there by changing her father's attitude.
At the same time the cruel magician wants the Chetan to lay hands on a treasure. Even though the magician is the owner of the Chetan he is burnt and killed by the Chetan in the climax. Chetan turns into a bat and flies away.
Although it was the dubbed version of My Dear Kuttichathan a few additional scenes were shot with Hindi actors Urmila Matondkar, Satish Kaushik, Shakti Kapoor, Harish and Ravi Baswani. Shakti Kapoor plays the part of a magician who tries to catch Chetan but gets trapped in a mirror. The part was originally played by Dominic Alumudan in the Malayalam version ( Prakash Raj did this role in its re-released Tamil version Chutti Chathan ). Satish Kaushik plays the part of Jagathi Sreekumar as a scientist who also tries to catch Chetan but gets destroyed.
Though a dubbed release it went on to become a major box office hit. It was the first feature film to introduce DTS for a stereoscopic 3D feature film.
