"Underline" goes through the descenders of some western characters too. 
Therefore "Underline" in this way is considered as bad typography. You 
should ban it totally.

There exist already a better solution. When you open the character 
formatting dialog, you will see a tab "borders". There you can draw a 
bottom border to the characters. If that does not work for your 
Malayalam characters, it would be worth a bug report.

Kind regards
