Directed by debutant Lakshmy Ramakrishnan, 'Aarohanam' is about free-spirited women, who under the pretext of gender, are subjected to suppression. In a male dominated industry, Lakshmy successfully weaved a heart-warming story about the search for a missing mother by her children without exploiting the condition of any character. Viji Chandrasekhar, who played the lead in the film, swept everybody off their feet with her performance as a mother suffering from bi-polar disorder. One of the highlights of the film is that it addresses a domestic issue with unparalleled sensitivity. The film is all set to be remade in Hindi by Lakshmy herself.
