Release Date:

Hridayam was released worldwide on 21st January 2022. It received a positive response from the audience after release. So the production decided to release it on the OTT platform too.


Hriyadam was released on 18th February 2022 exclusively on OTT platform Disney+Hotstar at 12am. You can watch this movie by getting a subscription to the OTT platform.


Hridayam means “heart” or “soul”. This movie truly describes these two words only in 172 mins. Today, in the busy schedule of going to campus, studying and making true friends at once is nothing impossible. But this movie has made it possible by showing two characters in their first year of an engineering college at KGC College of Technology in Chennai falling in love at once. 

This romantic- drama or coming of age story depicts the life of Arun Neelakandan and Darshana, how they met, how they fell in love, how their life made a sudden twist, and they got separated. Yes, I know this kind of scenario will be in most of the movie, but how it is beautifully presented in front of everyone by Vinneth Sreenivasan is unique as it has a different kind of ending because all endings are not meant to be happy.

For this, you have to watch the movie because by giving spoilers, you’ll lose interest in watching it. Must go and watch a movie one time. 

Coming to the performance of the actor, it is also 10/10. Playing the role of teenagers may be tough. All the lead roles had beautifully portrayed themselves, exactly what was needed.

Arun, the character, is difficult to play because it has more emotions than others. At the age of being a teen, everyone has many emotions in themselves that they cannot show in front of everyone, and they go on the wrong path. The same has happened with Arun. He also goes in the wrong direction to make his life the best. Pranav Mohanlal has this character life by playing it. 

Talking about the female lead role, Darshana and Nithya, they had also played their character nicely. Darshana is a cute going college girl. Nithya will make you fall in love with her as this character also has some insecurities with their partner. But through the quality of acting skills both the girls have must say that this movie has got the best crew. Also, the other characters also had given their best in the movie.

Music: Music is that medicine which can heal all your pain. A movie without music is nothing. Because music conveys every beat of emotion, whether it is happiness, sadness, or love, it will reach you, so the work by Music director Hesham Abdul Wahab and Lyricist Arun Aalat is done. 

Everything is up to the mark: cinematography, film editing, costume designing, production management, etc. 

According to the movie, the rating of the movie will be 8.5/10.


The only way to download the movie is through Hotstar and Amazon Prime. For that, you must have a subscription.
