Yeah.. I am on vacation for a week and got some time to work on
interesting stuff only now. So I thought this is the best time to
see Malayalam implementation on Emacs.

Yes, the five half-consonents are very common in Malayalam. Without that
the meaning of some words just change. i.e <consonent>+<halant> has
different meaning compared to <half-consonant> for those 5 characters.
