Kamala was a favourite among the female audiences for a long time as the character, serial plot and story structure revealed the gender bias which was quite prominent in Kerala. Kamala was a highly capable, independent and responsible woman, but still she chose to hide her dreams and opinions to be within the socially acceptable norms. Kamala has been portrayed as an epitome of patience, love and sacrifice, yet she does not get back the love or respect from the society.
