Aravindante Athidhikal Story:
Madhavan (Vineeth) finds an abandoned boy at a Mookambika Devi temple. Later, the boy grows on to become a happy and cheerful man, Aravindan. Set in the premises of Kolluru Mookambika temple in Karnataka, the story deals with the customers who visit the lodge run by them.
The story begins on the day of Navaratri and ends on Navaratri years later. The father and foster son's camaraderie is the interesting part of the story, which will take a twist with the arrival of a customer to their lodge.
The movie has been hailed for his content. It has a simple, yet absorbing storyline. The performances of Vineeth and Srinivasan are impressive in their roles. Nikhila Vimal, who is returning after a while, is perfect in her role of a dancer. Urvashi's act brings smile on the viewers' face and Santhi Krishna, Prem Kumar and others have played their parts well.
Technically, cinematography is brilliant and the way he has captured Kodachadri Hills on his camera needs a special mention. And special mention for the music. Overall, it has turned out to be a good family entertainer.
