Sushin Shyam composed the film’s music, while Sameer Thahir handled the cinematography, and Vivek Harshan took charge of editing.

Released on April 11, 2024, Aavesham received widespread critical acclaim for its direction, performances (notably by Fahadh Faasil and Sajin Gopu), action sequences, cinematography, music, and technical craftsmanship. The film emerged as a blockbuster, grossing over ₹155 crores on a budget of ₹30 crores, making it the fourth highest-grossing Malayalam film of all time and one of the top-grossing Indian films of 2024.

Plot Summary

Aavesham follows Aju, Bibi, and Shanthan, who move to Bangalore, Karnataka from Kerala to pursue aeronautical engineering. They opt for BK Hostel, run by the college clerk BK, believing it offers more freedom. Their carefree life takes a turn when they clash with Kutty, a senior student. This encounter leads to their abduction and beating by Kutty and his gang, only to be offered friendship later. Humiliated, Aju seeks revenge, leading them to befriend Ranga, a prominent Malayali-Kannadiga gangster who is always clad in white.

A drunken night leads Ranga to take the trio to his old house where they uncover a dark secret. Disappointed by Ranga’s passive approach, Bibi’s confrontation provokes Ranga to publicly thrash Kutty and his gang during the college Holi celebration. Though facing expulsion, they are granted a second chance. Their bond with Ranga disrupts their studies, and their lives spiral as Ranga kills two gang members who tried to leave.

Kidnapped by Reddy, Ranga’s former boss, they escape to Tumkur, avoiding Ranga’s search. Their academic focus returns until they plan to confront Ranga with Reddy’s help. Betrayed yet victorious in his battle against Reddy’s gang, Ranga reveals his loneliness and the trio’s significance. The film concludes with Aju and Bibi failing an exam, while Shanthan passes, and Ranga, now in black, humorously punishes them outside the college.

The technical team included Sushin Shyam, Sameer Thahir, Vivek Harshan, and Ashwini Kale as music composer, cinematographer, editor, and production designer, respectively.

Fahadh Faasil, portraying the Bangalore-based gangster Ranga, adopted a unique look with a thick handlebar mustache and white attire. Sajin Gopu, Mansoor Ali Khan, and Ashish Vidyarthi played significant roles, alongside newcomers Pranav Raj, Hipzster, Mithun Jai Shankar, Roshan Shanavas, and Midhutty. Principal photography began in Bangalore and wrapped up in November 2023.

Aavesham premiered on April 11, 2024, coinciding with the Eid al-Fitr and Vishu weekend. Initially set for Onam and Christmas 2023, the release was postponed to the first quarter of 2024.

Garnering a U/A certificate from the CBFC, Aavesham had a final runtime of 157 minutes, with minor edits for the Kuwait release.

On its opening day, Aavesham garnered ₹3.9 crores globally, securing the top position among simultaneous releases like Varshangalku Shesham and Jai Ganesh.
