Redefine \figurename and \tablename with appropriate Malayalam terms:

\def\figurename{<m>.....</m>}
\def\tablename{<m>......</m>}

This should invariably be in your *.mm file which is read by the
preprocessor, and not in any package or master documents.  In that case
they should also be preprocessed.
