*.tfm -> fonts->tfm->malayalam
*.pfb -> fonts->type1->public->malayalam
*.afm -> fonts->afm->malayalam

Is there a .map file too? If there is it should be placed in

*.map -> fonts->map->dvips->malayalam

What has to be done after the files are in place depends upon which texmf tree are you putting all these files and is that tree owned by root?

Good Luck,
