Meenakshi (Kavya), Simi (Karthika) and Devi (Manya) are college students and good friends. They are expelled from college for attempting to leak the question papers. Simi's boyfriend Thomas Chacko (Vineeth Kumar) always bails them out and this time they go to Nelliampathy. On the run, they meet Raghuram (Mamooty) a wild life photographer working for National Geographic Channel who comes to Nelliampathy to photograph a rare species of bird. Initially the four friends are suspicious about him but later befriend him.

Just when they begin to like and trust him, he goes missing. The girls who have a knack for trouble try to investigate the mystery. The rest of the film is about their quest for Raghuram with his past slowly unfolding as the story develops. The film moves towards a riveting climax as alarming truths starts revealing one by one.

Raghuram has a past. Searching for a rare bird he reaches this hill station and meets Kalyani (Mahi Vijay), the village chief's daughter, who had a striking similarity with his sister. But one day she disappears mysteriously. The mystery is solved in the end, which forms the highlight of the film.

Mammootty as the drunken but humorous photographer is superb, especially in the comic scenes. Kavya as usual looks good and has done a great job. Jagathy and Machan Varghese's separate comedy track is okay. Suresh Peters' music keeps the tempo alive. After a hiatus cinematographer Santhosh Sivan is back in Malayalam, to wield the camera for his brother's film.

Produced by Siraj Valiyaveettil under the banner of Valiyaveetil Movie International and directed by Sanjeev Sivan, APARICHITHAN is a must watch even though it seems heavily inspired from Hollywood.
