Hridayam - Reminscene about College life


The movie Hridayam has Pranav Mohanlal, Dharsana Rajendran and Kalyani Priyadarshan in the lead role.  The protagonist “Arun Neelakandan” moves to Chennai from his home town Palakad to study engineering where he found a real sense of life.


The first half of the film has the nostalgic element to remind us of the things whatever the good and bad we did in our College days.  Relatable events in the film made us reminiscent of our beautiful memories in college.  Friendship, Love, Laugh and separation made college life so special and memorable.  

The Protagonist's College life revolves around getting new friends, falling in love at first sight, getting ragged and beaten by seniors, returning the same to his juniors, getting along with his partner in crime, clearing arrears at one go, late-night parties, participating in sports and cultural activities.

During the period of college years, there will be a conflict happened when the transition to adulthood occurs. The conflict between our innocence and adrenaline rush attitude will be evident in the first year of college days.   Later it will switch to “Live to the fullest rather than regretting it later”.  

Happening life moves to an end when the final days of college life reach the last day.  Within four years,  we discovered the new world where Friendship and Fun are the ultimate motives. The saddest part is the world we discovered soon to be disappeared when college life ends.

In the second half of the film, the Protagonist explores his life and found Photography as his profession.  He joined with Jimmy to start an Intimate Wedding Photography Company.  During one of such weddings, he met Nithya (Kalyani Priyadarshan) and both liked each other.  They get married with their parent’s approval.  They begin the next phase of life and the film moves to the end with a realistic conclusion without any cinematic twist and turns.

The feel-good movie will recollect your college memories which urge you to ring your best friend in college.  The film is smooth and feels good with lovely music, visually appealing and heartfelt performances from the actors.
