The film covers Ayyappan's life at Pandalam as the young Manikandan, born out of the union between Lord Shiva and Vishnu in his Mohini avatar, his childhood at the gurukul, and the miracles he performed. It depicts Manikandan’s fight with Udayana, the slaying of the demoness Mahishi and the instances that lead to his friendship with Vavar, a robber from Turkistan. This friendship is considered to be the epitome of religious tolerance till this day. Once the purpose of his embodiment is fulfilled, Manikandan gets united with the idol in the Sabarimala Temple and is henceforth known as ‘Swami Ayyappan’.


The movie's promo won the 2013 TASI Anifest India Viewer’s Choice Award in the 'best film - commissioned' category, and the 2014 FICCI BAF award for Best Animated promo (international).
