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

Laugh your way through this feel good movie
16 September 2018 | by raulukmjSee all my reviews

I don't know the number of times I have watched this. The story is Ari-Pranchi aka Pranchiyettan who is trying hard to remove his knick name is then crux of the movie. What all he and his friends try to change this is presented in an extremely hilarious way. Innocent has a wonderful role as Mammootys sidekick. With thrissur slang and simplicity of the dialogues, this movie clearly entertains you.

Siddique plays Pranchis arch enemy. Priya Mani is the female lead. Both have good roles in the movie. Jagathi also has a super cameo. It's a laugh riot with a final feel good ending .
