What is Pappachan Olivilaanu all about?

Pappachan Olivilaanu narrates the story of Pappachan, a jeep driver who is accused of bison hunting. Pappachan’s father, Maathachan (played by Vijayaraghavan), was a revered shooter in the local community. Pappachan dreams of following in his father’s footsteps and often boasts about his shooting skills, causing issues with the Forest Department.

When Pappachan is investigated by government officials after bragging about a recent shooting, he goes into exile. Srindaa plays Pappachan’s wife, while Aju essays a village character.

Despite a predictable storyline, the film entertains with its comic timing and some incredible performances by Aju, Vijayaraghavan and Saiju, among others. According to Sinto and Saiju, the story is inspired by a real-life character.
