A lot of marriage proposals that come by her way fail, and at last, her marriage is fixed with Prasad, who works abroad. The marriage preparations had been going at a brisk pace. A day before the wedding, she gets a phone call that carries a shocking message. How did she handle the situation? What happened to her marriage? The rest of the film speaks about it.

Star Performance

Aishwarya Lekshmi has done an excellent job. Her character has various layers, and she emoted exceptionally well. The rest of the cast has done what was required for their roles.


The film comes with a different script. Aishwarya Lekshmi is given a meaty role, and she fits in the role perfectly. Though the plot appears emotional, the screenplay didn’t go that much deep sentimental. But, the film has all its emotions at its place but with humor laced over it. The issues faced by unmarried women are shown, and the dialogues are written well. Many people would relate it to reality, for sure. The characters are developed well and executed neatly. The visuals, BGM, and editing are okayish. However, certain things like Archana’s interest in sports should have been dealt with properly.

What’s There?

  • Neat plot with good execution
  • Performances of the stars are appreciable

What’s Not There?

  • A few minor mistakes


The film carries some incidents that happen in real-life. With the natural performances of the stars, the film is interesting. Although there are a few minus points, it could be left considering the pluses. Archana 31 Not Out – watch-worthy!
