Being one of the biggest hits and memorable Malayalam films of recent times, Angamaly Diaries tells the story of a group of young boys.

Madhumita has brought her own unique flavour to this film, and I can't wait for the audience to watch her vision for the film," said the actor.
Director Madhumita echoed similar sentiments and said he couldn't have asked for a better actor to play. "It has been a delight to work with him and this exciting bunch of actors".
