Sree Nārāyana Guru Swami, was a saint, sage, prophet and social reformer of Kerala.The Guru was born into an Ezhava family, in an era when people from backward communities faced severe social injustices in the Kerala society.
Gurudevan,revolted against casteism and worked on propagating values of freedom in spirituality and of social equality, thereby transforming the Kerala society.
He is widely respected as a prophet, saint, sage and social reformer of Kerala.

Initially megastar Mammootty was considered the title role of Sree Narayana Guru. However, Mammootty, decided to gracefully withdraw from the role, stating that he may not be the right choice.The picture of Sri Narayana Guru is very famous in Kerala and Mammootty believes that he can hardly substitute the original looks and grace of of Narayana Guru.But he offered to play another the role in the movie so as to make up for not doing the title role.
The search for a fresh face to play Guru is still continuing.
Mohanlal also acts in the movie and doing the role of Swami Vivekanda.
