The story develops during the 1987-88 period. It was a time when Mohanlal's 'Rajavinte Makan' and Mammootty's 'Athirathram' were such a rage among youth. Louis wishes to be like Vincent Gomas and Tharadas, the heroes in these movies.
The film exhibits a get together of a group of friends after a long interval of 14 years. They discusses their naughty works, silly love stories, etc that happened during their college life with their life partners.
What makes Shaw shank Redemption the best movie on IMDb ? The same makes Athmakatha an equally or even better movie. This is truly a gem of a movie from Premlal (debutant director). How to instill hopes and courage to a daughter who gets to know she is soon going to be blind like her mother who passed away and her dad who has been taking care of her since then? How does the father show her the right path. Spell bound script and tight performances from Sreenivasan (blind father) and Shafna (daughter). There is not even a single scene in the movie that is clichéd or stereotyped. I give a standing ovation to PremLal for giving us a Masterpiece. The movie would have won all the Oscar's and other major awards had it been a western movie. I truly hope more and more people get a chance to watch the classic
