#Aarattu first half was good.. But second half was just blah.. Van bore like oru bomb padam.. It's more like a spoof for aram thamburan with some kurashi abram in the end..— Shazzam (@callmeshazzam) February 18, 2022
I’m okay with fiery dialogues , Bgm and over the top action sequences if it’s made in the right packaging . #Aarattu falls flat in all those aspects . The throwbacks and references which were supposed to invoke applauses were met awkward expressions from the audiences .— Premg (@ogpremg) February 18, 2022
#Aarattu is an unforgivable mistake committed by Unnikrishnan B and script writer Udayakrishna. The first hour was decent, but the second hour was utter nonsense. Reminded me of an old Mohanlal that did Mr.Fraud and Lokpal.— Sreenesh (@kamathehehe) February 18, 2022
Aaraattu, which is a complete mass entertainer, revolves around the central character Neyyattinkara Gopan, played by Mohanlal. Gopan visits a village in Palakkad for a special mission, and the film narrates where his journey leads him. As the teaser and trailer suggested, Aaraattu marks Mohanlal's comeback to his much-celebrated mass hero avatar, after a very long gap.
B Unnikrishnan, who is joining hands with Mohanlal for the fifth time with Aaraattu, had stated that the movie is his tribute to the superstar, in an earlier interview. According to the director, this film will celebrate the complete actor, who is unarguably the biggest superstar of Malayalam cinema and one of the finest actors of Indian cinema. The filmmaker had also confirmed that Aaraattu is specially designed for a theatre-watching experience.
Rahul Raj has composed the songs and original score for Aaraattu. The Mohanlal starrer features an extensive star cast including Nedumudi Venu, Saikumar, Vijayaraghavan, Siddique, Indrans, Raghavan, Nandu, Kochu Preman, Johny Antony, Biju Pappan, Sheela, Swasika, Malavika, Rachana Narayanankutty, and so on in the supporting roles.
