Aruvam (transl. Formless, Shapeless) is a 2019 Indian Tamil-language supernatural thriller film written and directed by Sai Sekhar. The film stars Siddharth and Catherine Tresa with Kabir Duhan Singh, Madhusudhan Rao, Sathish, Aadukalam Naren and Manobala in supportive roles.
Sai Thaman composed the film's soundtrack while cinematography and editing were handled by N. K. Ekambaram and Praveen K. L. respectively. Principal photography commenced on 13 July 2018.
Jyothi (Catherine Tresa) is introduced to us as a primary school teacher who does not have the sense of smell. She is inferior about her disorder and tries her best to help out the needy as her carelessness in childhood leads to her mother's death, which in turn changed her as a person.
We also get introduced to Jagannathan (Siddharth), who falls hook, line, and sinker for Jyothi at first sight. Jagan proposes his love for Jyothi on one side, while some murders take place in weird fashion in the city on the other.
It is later revealed that Jagan is a Food Safety Inspector, who is a staunch crusader against food adulteration happening in various food outlets in different parts of Tamil Nadu, ordering the closure of the outlets when he detects adulteration.
He is also shown to have a strong sense of smell. His crusade against food adulteration induces many enemies in his path, including his own higher officials in the Food Safety Department, who attack him. Jagan fights them, but gets mortally weakened, after which he decides to give up his life by falling off a train onto a banyan tree.
Jagan's soul then inhabitates Jyothi's body and she inadvertently murders the people who were responsible for food adulteration and Jagan's death.
