Dinesh (Nivin Pauly), a bachelor, tries to impress Shobha (Nayanthara) with the help of his best friend and hopes he will get married to her someday.



Love Action Drama marks the directorial debut of actor Dhyan Sreenivasan, and his second screenplay after Goodalochana. The film also marks the debut production of Visakh Subramaniam and Aju Varghese under their newly formed production company Funtastic Films. It was during the time of Adi Kapyare Kootamani (2015) that Subramaniam and Aju decided to co-produce the film.[1] Love Action Drama was announced in July 2017, during the fifth anniversary of Thattathin Marayathu. The film, according to Dhyan, is a modern-day take on the 1989 film Vadakkunokkiyantram written, directed and starring his father Sreenivasan. Nivin's and Nayanthara's character's were named Dineshan and Shobha after the names of the lead characters in Vadakkunokkiyantram.[2]

It was Vineeth Sreenivasan who suggested the name of Nayanthara and she immediately agreed after hearing the screenplay.[1] Dhyan completed the screenplay by November 2017. The filming was expected to begin by the end of the year, but had to wait for the lead actors' availability.[3] In February 2018, Aju said that the shoot would begin by July 2018, once Nivin completes filming Kayamkulam Kochunni. He also revealed that Nivin was planning to lose weight for the role.[4][5] A pooja function for the film was held at Anjumana Devi Temple in Kochi on 14 July 2018, with principal photography beginning the same day.[6] The first schedule ended on 27 July 2018.[7] After a delay, the second schedule began in February 2019 and the entire filming process was completed by early June 2019.[8]
