Are you trying to use a malayalam dictionary for spell checking? If so
you can install aspell and aspell-ml to get a malayalam dictionary.
Then you can use ispell to spell check within emacs. You can also use
flyspell if you prefer on-the-fly spell check.

On the other hand if you are using the above service to look up word
definitions then you would need to install w3m, w3m-el and w3m-img
(optional package for image support). Then you can do `M-x
w3m-browse-url' to go to that url.
