One Line Review: A beautiful movie that travel’s through one’s different phases of life.
Vineeth Sreenivasan means ‘minimum guaran-tee’ for the movie-buffs. Whenever he directed a movie, audience never got dissatisfied. After a gap of six years, when the man came with Hridayam wearing the director’s hat, Malayalam cinema got one of the best love stories in the recent times.

Our review for Hridayam is 10/10.
Arun Neelakandan joins an engineering college in Chennai. He meets Darshana there and immediately falls in love with her. Due to some misunderstanding, things fall apart between them and Arun falls into the addiction of alcohol. Slowly, Arun regains his senses and understands the path he’d taken is wrong and starts to focus on his studies while patching up things with Darshana as well.
After his college, Arun and his friends drift apart seeking their career. Arun collaborates with a wedding photographer and starts a wedding photography company that flourishes big. He meets Nithya on a wedding and the rest of the story is how he shapes his future career and life.
Hesham Abdul Wahab – one can’t ignore this name while talking about the grand success of Hridayam. His music oozes beauty and let the movie and characters flow into the hearts of viewers. Vineet Sreenivasan is a master in filmmaking and who treats the process as an art. With right way of placing songs, he simply proved that people won’t even feel that the song is a hurdle in a movie. There is a total of 15 songs in this almost 3 hour movie, still it flows like a stream!
Hridayam is a beautiful musical journey for a viewer. While onscreen, it is about the journey of a man through his campus life and afterwards. Pranav Mohanlal was exceptional as Arun Neelakandan. He portrayed various shades of Arun from his campus to family life with perfection. This should have been his debut in Malayalam cinema and it would have been awesome.
The casting team deserves a huge applause. Each and everyone in Hridayam has their own importance and contribute their part to the story. From Arun’s friends to his family everyone were casted perfectly.
With apt background music, Hridayam is a treat for your ears and your soul itself!
A Vineeth Sreenivasan magic!
