I think this is simpler:

	\newfontfamily\latinfont{Minion Pro}
	\n=`\ം \loop \XeTeXcharclass \n=4 \ifnum\n<`\ൿ \advance\n by 1 \repeat
	\XeTeXinterchartoks   0 4 {\malayalamfont}
	\XeTeXinterchartoks 255 4 {\malayalamfont}
	\XeTeXinterchartoks 255 0 {\latinfont}
	\XeTeXinterchartoks   4 0 {\latinfont}

Well, here in Apple's Mail.app I cannot see the characters from which the loop starts (\n=`\ം) and where it ends (\n<`\ൿ). They are from MALAYALAM SIGN ANUSVARA, U+0D02, until MALAYALAM LETTER CHILLU K, U+0D7F.



If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.
