Aanandam, the campus movie which hit the theatres on October 21, Friday, has opened to highly positive reviews. The movie is directed by debutante Ganesh Raj, the former assistant of Vineeth Sreenivasan.
At the box office, Aanandam has succeeded in standing firm despite being released along with a superstar film. The movie has made a gross collection of 2.2 Crores, within the first 3 days from the Kerala box office.
It is undoubtedly an excellent box office figure for a low-budget film, which stars newcomers in the lead roles. Aanandam is expected to hit the theatres outside Kerala and India, by November first week.
Aanandam also marked the production debut of popular actor-director-singer Vineeth Sreenivasan, for his home banner Habit Of Life. The movie is scripted by director Ganesh Raj, himself.
Nivin Pauly and Aju Varghese made special cameo appearances in the movie, which revolves around the IV trip of a group of engineering students. Singer Sachin Warrier made his music direction debut with the movie.
Newcomers Vishak Nair, Anu Antony, Thomas Mathew, Arun Kurian, Siddhi Mahajankatti, Roshan Mathew, and Anarkali Marakkar, have played the lead characters of the movie, Kuppi, Devika, Akshay, Varun, Dia, Gautham, and Darhsana, respectively.
