Neyyattinkara Gopante Aaraattu (transl. Neyyattinkara Gopan's ritual bath), or simply Aaraattu, is an upcoming Indian Malayalam-language action-comedy film written by Udaykrishna and directed by B. Unnikrishnan. It stars Mohanlal and Shraddha Srinath in the lead roles and features Siddique, Nedumudi Venu, Saikumar, Swasika and Rachana Narayanankutty in supporting roles.
Principal photography of the film began on 23 November 2020 in Palakkad district. Mohanlal's character drives a vintage black Mercedes-Benz with 2255 on the number plate, a reference to Mohanlal's iconic line from his 1986 blockbuster Rajavinte Makan. Shameer Muhammed edits the film while Vijay Ulaganath is the cinematographer. Rahul Raj composes the original songs and background score.
