The film is directed by debutant Mandhira Moorthy
Sasikumar's Ayothi, directed by debutant Mandhira Moorthy, has been receiving a positive response since its release. Meanwhile, the latest speculation is that the film will be remade in Telugu and Hindi. However, no official announcement has been made yet regarding the buzz and who has acquired the rights.
The film revolves around a chauvinistic patriarch Balram (Yashpal) from Ayodhya, who decides to take his family, consisting of his wife Janaki, daughter Shivani (Preethi) and a young son, on a pilgrimage to Rameshwaram. During the road transit from Madurai to Rameshwaram, Balram misbehaves with the driver, leading to an altercation. As the driver loses control, the car meets with an accident, leading to Janaki's death. When the driver informs his friends, characters played by Sasikumar and Pugazh, decide to help the family in transporting the body to their native. The film unfolds with some soul-stirring series of events of the day.
The technical crew of Ayothi consists of cinematographer Madheshmanickam, editor Lokesh and music composer by NR Ragunanthan and art director G Durai Raj. The film is backed by R Ravindran's Trident Arts banner.
