Pistha Story

Pistha is directed by K.S. Ravikumar and starring Karthik Muthuraman and Nagma in the lead roles.Karthik plays Manikandan, an Ayyapan devotee whom Mouli hires as the manager to his factory and businesses. When Manikandan goes to see Mouli's business he finds that it is not what he thought it was; that is, nobody works. Nagma plays the role of Mouli's daughter.

She is very mischievous and causes many problems for her father because she breaks everything wherever she goes. She wants to have control of her grandfather's assets but the catch on his will was that she can only get access directly after she gets married and half of the assets will go to her husband. For this she marries the humble Ayyapan devotee Manikandan.

But after the wedding we see another side to Manikandan, who tells us now that he is an ex-convict. Then a battle goes on between Nagma and Manikandan. Then we find out about why Nagma is the way she is—this is due to her sister's death (which she blames on her father). Near the end Manikandan proves to her that her sister's lover was the cause of her sister's death. Nagma then understands and asks for forgiveness from Manikandan. The film ends with Manikandan becoming an Ayyapan devotee again.
