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

Good movie : well made
10 April 2011 | by anoop kSee all my reviews

Pranchiyetan and the saint is a movie revolving around the central character ,Prachiyettan's ( played by Padamshree Bharat Mammoty) reflection on his life, on his futile attempts to achieve, fame respect and recognition, Ultimately leading to self realisation.... A very well scripted movie, Master director Ranjit nicely blends thrissur slang and the central character's possible imaginary tryst with St Francis.In the process Pranchiyettan as well the viewers are taken through stark realities of life , in what meets the eyes are not always true... and what one percieves as success and successful people in real life are often neither happy nor successful and true success in life lies within oneself and helping others in realising their's
