Amar, Akbar and Anthony are close friends living in Kochi. They enjoy a carefree life. Their perceptions and beliefs get shattered with an unexpected event and the resulting story forms the plot of the movie.
ACP Antony Mosses finds the killer of his friend ACP Aryan Jacob and just before revealing it, he meets with an accident, causing him to forget everything. Days later, he is forced to investigate the murder once again.
Set in the 1960s and 70s in Mukkam, Kerala, the film tells the tragic love story of Moideen who belongs to a renowned Muslim family and Kanchana Mala who is the daughter of a Hindu Thiyya aristocratic landlord. Since inter-religious marriages were a taboo then, the couple had to part ways as their families objected to their love affair. Moideen shifted ground to being a socio-political activist and Kanchanamala lived in her house under strict restrictions for 22 years. Both communicated through letters and language they had developed. Eventually Kanchanmala was caught and beaten mercilessly by her conservative relatives. The lovers then finally decide to go to America, for which Moideen arranges passport for Kanchanamala and himself. When he was returning with the passport, Moideen drowns in a boat mishap in the river Iruvazhinjippuzha in July 1982. This shatters Kanchana Mala. Kanchanamala attempts to commit suicide, but Moideen's mother holds her back. She takes Kanchanamala to ...
It was the real-life Kanchanamala, who insisted the director to cast Prithviraj the role of B.P. Moideen, her lover, in the film as she felt that Prithviraj was the most eligible and similar-looking person to cast Moideen. See more »
Look at this Iruvanjippuzha. It is connected with Arabian sea. Even if it is tried to be blocked, it will reach there itself. If Iruvanjippuzha is for Arabian Sea, then surely Kanchana is for Moideen. This is Moideen's word. Word is the most substantial truth.

What a magnificent story with great direction and cinematography. I can't believe that the film was directed by a debut director. It is said that the director took almost 7 years to complete the film. This itself shows his sincerity to the film.
Jomon T. John, had an epic comeback to films after a short period of time. He had done an amazing work to the film which made it, a blockbuster.
Gopi Sunder again made his eminence in background scores through the film with some amazing piece of 'ringtone-to-be' scores.
Prithviraj, experiencing an increase in his prestige through the film, made all the teenagers and college students, their own 'Prithvi'. His genuine way of acting will surely make him an award winner this year. Talking about the lead actress i.e Kanchanamala played by Parvathi Menon, was superb and had a stunning boldness and sensitive mind which made her a perfect heroine. The film had enough comedies without making the audience bore and had a twist and a sentimental climax. The supporting casts were superb especially, Appu played by Tovino Thomas and Sethu played by Bala. The camera and director showed their significance again very well in the climax scene. Unni Mohammed Sahib played by Saikumar, had a great sense of boldness and strong attraction towards his party as a Freedom Fighter in the film. Art Direction and Make-up was obviously great and magnificent as it is very strenuous and difficult to make a new film old or to make it in a background of 1960's. This film is an excellent example of Malayalam film industry and is certainly, a landmark film for the Malayalam Industry and hopes, for an another one like this.
