Navarasa Thilagam Plot:
Ma Ka Pa Anand plays that cliched role you can find in every
alternative comical Tamil flicks and the character played by
Karunakaran, who plays the hero's sidekick is no exception.
These two lead a carefree life and end up losing money in the
name of business, gaining the wrath of Anand's father, played by

When he plans to get closer to her family by befriending the guy
(Siddharth Vipin) engaged to Srushti's elder sister, he realizes
something crucial in accordance with his own love life.
Suddenly, Anand's sole mission is to stop Siddharth Vipin's
