There are some elephant story movies in Malayalam, saying about the passion and love of elephants towards men. But In this movie, the story thread has the smell of revenge, the revenge of an Elephant. Elephants are social animals so far. But the invading of humans into their territories and enslaving them for his needs turned the nature of elephants. Even if this is an animal story it has much resemblance with the humans. If a child is growing up under the supervision, love and care of adults he will eventually turn into a good social being. On the other hand, if the same person is growing up under the shades of loneliness, crime and hate he will become a social nuisance. That is, if the circumstances are worse a man can be turned into an animal. We may fetch this idea from the core of this movie. Society considers such persons under the tag of criminals. they look them with hatred. But no one has ever drenched the disastrous story behind them. Even the media is celebrating the crimes, and the blames the culprits, but they never looked back their life. In the movie Aana we can a see a poor animal, who turned turned into a beast.
