'North 24 Kaadham' is a contemporary and socially relevant drama that revolves around three pivotal characters; three strangers who are forced by circumstance to travel from South to North Kerala on a day of 'bandh' (day of political strike during which the state comes to a halt entirely).
Harinarayan (Fahadh Faasil) is a brilliant IT professional working for a multinational company in Kochi. He is basically a loner and suffers from OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) and is hated by his colleagues. Harinarayan reluctantly embarks on a journey to Thiruvananthapuram by train to make a presentation about a software he has helped develop. But he has to interrupt his journey and go to the other side of the state to help Gopalan, a veteran politician, reach his home in Kozhikode, where his wife is critically ill.
This not only upsets Hari's routine and schedule, but also disturbs his standard of hygiene. He is joined by Narayani (Swati) who regularly goes out of her way to help others. A social work graduate, she works for an NGO in Thiruvananthapuram.
This difficult and tumultuous journey becomes a life altering experience for all the three, especially the protagonist.
This contemporary road movie has brilliant splashes of situational humor, while also providing critical look at the plight of the general population during frequent bandhs or shut downs in the State of Kerala.
