Storyline

Nirmali, a married Paediatrician in her late 30s, leads a peaceful but joyless domestic existence in Guwahati, Assam. Her husband, a senior Doctor, spends most of his time doing relief work in surrounding areas, leaving her alone at home to take care of their son. One day, she meets Sumon, a young PhD student researching food habits in northeastern India, who warms up to her in a manner she seems unaccustomed to. Sumon's work exposes him to the belief that there's no kind of food that can be considered abnormal, and Nirmali is drawn to this idea. The two quickly discover that they have a shared love for food - specifically, meat. Together, they bond over meals comprising unusual meats on platonic dates, although Sumon longs for some sort of physical contact. As Nirmali's tastebuds grow more adventurous, their relationship takes a dark and bizarre turn.

Haunting obsession for love
10 May 2020 | by anubhabnandySee all my reviews

The trailer suggested this movie to have some unexpected twists and turns in a romantic relationship.But it never even hinted about the dark and realistic often undiscovered territory of the human mind that is showcased in the second half of the film.

Like many other romantic movies this movie opens up with a normal relationship building up from day to day events.The character played by Lima Das named as Nirmali is a pediatric surgent and with a sudden turn of fate somehow meets the male protagonist Suman played by Arkaprava Barua. Though by the first half it was clear that Nirmali is married and this relationship was sort of extramarital but that was pretty common in movies like this.

The original twist comes in the second half of the movie.This slow pace of events through out the entire runtime was the main catalyst to what comes next.The change in the tone of the movie was so gradual that it slips right under our skins and we only realize it at the end of the story that whatever we were watching is just a twisted representation of human obssessions. The story is revealed in such a flawless fashion that we cannot even fathom to realize for a moment the signs of extreme darkness lurking around every scenes .

Aamis is a Bengali-Assamese word which generally means non-veg.Both of the protagonists have this common trait of love for non veg dishes.However a twisted enough meaning of this word is more than enough to describe the true nature of the movie or story to unfold.The English naming of this movie "Ravening" is more suitable to describe it.
