Storyline

Chirammal Enashu Francis, a.k.a. Pranchiyettan (Mammootty), is a successful businessman based in Thrissur. He is a devotee of Saint Francis of Assisi and often has imaginary conversations with the saint. His ancestors were rice traders, but he has grown beyond the small rice shop to expand his business into jewellery, real estate, finance, shopping complexes and lot more. Even though he is successful and wealthy, he is not well-educated and he is unhappy with his name and also wants to become a celebrity. He is called Ari ("rice") Pranchi by everybody, citing his ancestors' business as a colloquial taunt. He wants to change his image from Ari Pranchi to something great and is ready to spend a fortune for it. The film deals with how Pranchi tries to get a good name and what changes that brings to his life. Written by JashDM

my view of pranchiyettan
18 September 2010 | by (kottayam,kerala) – See all my reviews

the much hyped mammootty release for the Ramadan 2010 "pranchiyettan and the saint" turned up well. the film is a comedy film.the movie deals with c e francis , played by mammootty, who does many things to become popular. it isa very clean cinema without any fights. the first half is comedy and the second half turns serious. the direction is good. overall the movie didn't create much waves amng fans, they expect a rajamanikaym type of performance. the film deals with the simple story of a man. the sentiments to the last part did not work out well. yet the feel of the film is good. mammootty performed the thrissur slang to the very best.that is the main highlight of the film. definitely watchable for all good viewers of malayalam film lovers. if someone really like smammootty the excellent actor, rather than the superstarism, go for it.

verdict: 6/10
