Production

The film was in the making for more than fifteen years. Sukumaran says this movie was a childhood ambition, a destiny. His devotion to Sree Narayana Guru is what promoted him to make this movie. Over 2000 hand drawn images constitute the story board. Mohanlal was initially cast as "Swami Vivekananda", a cameo role in the movie which comes in the flashback, but later on withdrew from the movie due to problems with his shooting dates. The cast includes some of the best in the Malayalam movie industry.

The story revolves around the life and teachings of Sree Narayana Guru. Various events in his life like the Aruvikkara movement, Vaikom Satyagraha are detailed. The movie involves two major sub plots which highlights the relevance of the guru and his teachings as well as his love to his fellow beings one where an intercaste couple portrayed by Navya Nair and Kalabhavan Mani fights the caste establishment with the blessings of Gurudevan. Another sub plot involves a family where Jagathy Sreekumar plays a drunken abusive husband and his wife(Kalpana) who is at the receiving end seeks the Guru's help and finally with the Guru's blessing Jagathy Sreekumar returns to the path of righteousness.
