The lead character Raman (Dileep), is an employee in a rice mill in Pune. He used to carry the rice to the mill for processing on a bicycle. Later he decides to buy an auto rickshaw and goes to his village to collect the money that his parents invested in his name in a post office in his hometown 30 years ago. One way to his hometown by train, he befriends a girl krishnendu, who happen's to be his father's arch enemy's daughter. Once he reaches his village he ends up in his father's rivals (krishnendu's) home and later comes to know that they are awaiting to kill him. Raman takes advantage of a tradition of their house that not even one drop of blood should fall inside the house to keep himself alive. Whether or not he comes alive forms rest of the plot of the movie.
Ivan Maryadaraman released on 4 April 2015.
Times of India gave the film a rating of 3/5, stating that "it is one of the oldest plots in tinsel town - a film that banks on love between the younger generations of warring families interspersed with antiquated rituals and their attempts to kill each other. It gives you an eerie feeling of familiarity. However, the scriptwriters here are Udayakrishna and Siby K Thomas, who have managed to churn out profitable flicks by showcasing stupid villains, strained relations and romantic comedies."
The critic at NowRunning gave this film a rating of 2/5 stating "Measure it by any yardstick, and I'd still maintain that 'Ivan Maryadaraman' is certainly not my cup of tea. For that matter, neither is the Telugu original that it blatantly admits to have been inspired from." The film was a flop at the box office.
