A Thrissur based man named Joy Thakkolkaran conceives the idea of making agarbathis from elephant dung and the film tracks down the challenges that await him in his venture.

Punyalan Agarbathis derives much of its warm humour from the apparently ludicrous concept of the lead character Joy Thakkolkaran. He paints colourful dreams of entrepreneurship with his notion of using elephant dung for making agarbathis.

Ranjith Sankar makes sure that he takes off from this cardinal idea and maintains a good flight, notching up light-hearted sequences and at the same time absorbing the dreams, despair and frustration of a man who wants to do something different.

The narrative is nourished with characters sketched with a fancy for the real and for satire. A bald-headed judge would chatter cheerfully with those in the dock and would lour at them in the same breath. A driver with his simpleton looks is invested with loads of childish naivete that he would weep for his mom when caught in police station.

Jayasurya infuses an easeful, sparkling wit into Thakkolkaran and he is enriched with a script that goes for slightly silly, but abundantly playful humor. This is one film where the dim-witted servants need not have to mouth obscenities to amuse themselves. They would rather seriously indulge in playing 'angry-birds', religiously treasuring each point they garner.

Even the woman characters, though a few, command a good-natured authority and presence on screen. Be it Anu, the wife of Joy or the advocate, the script treats them with respect, making them share the shine and glow of the lead character. Perhaps it's this genuine warmth about this film which helps it override certain scenes conjured up solely for the purpose of a meaningful conclusion. The lapses are easily forgotten for the rich presence of moments that make P unyalan Agarbathis a lovable film.
