Virunthali is all about poetic love and rib tickling humor. In life nothing is permanent and everything is very dynamic. Things like money, name, fame and love visit us for a short time, like guests entering a house, stay with us for some time and then leave.
They are akin to visitors/Virunthali that stay for a while and then proceed. This forms the basis of nomenclature of the film. The film is said to have been picturized in a philosophical set up and at the same time in an aesthetic manner too.
