Oggarane Story

Oggarane is a trilingual romantic comedy film directed by Prakash Raj. It is a remake of Aashiq Abu's Malayalam film Salt N' Pepper. It is a romantic story between two couples who accidentally get to know each other through their common love for food.


Kalidasa (Prakash Raj) works in the state archaeological department and is a food lover. His only companion is his cook, Servant (Brahmaji). Naveen (Tejus) is Kalidasa's nephew who comes to stay with him, while looking for a job.

Kalidasa has a normal life until he gets a mis-dialled phone call from Gowri (Sneha), a dubbing artiste living with her friend Meghna (Samyuktha). Gowri rings to order a special Dosa from a restaurant, but gets Kalidasa instead. Their conversations do not go well at first, but a long-distance romance develops due to their common interest—cooking and food.

Kalidasa is a born gourmet while Gowri is indulging in culinary activities in memory of her dead mother. Kalidasa starts to let Gowri into the secrets of baking with a multi-layered cake called "Joan's Rainbow". Kalidasa and Gowri both get the jitters before their first face-to-face meeting, as each becomes conscious of their own physical appearances, and both decide to send younger and better looking substitutes instead, Naveen and Meghna. When they meet, neither Naveen nor Meghna realise that the other person is a substitute, since they introduce themselves as Kalidasa and Gowri respectively.

Naveen thinks that Kalidasa is actually in love with Meghna, while Meghna thinks that Gowri is in love with Naveen. They attempt to sabotage their older counterpart's relationship by telling Kalidasa and Gowri respectively that the person they met would be unsuitable for them. Kalidasa and Gowri try to forget each other, but fail, and they decide to call each other and meet anyway.

Naveen and Meghna, who by this time had started to develop feelings for each other, are dejected upon hearing this and decide to leave the city so that their older counterpart may have a good relationship. Did Kalidasa and Gowri meet each other is to be watched in big screens. The Movie stars Prakash Raj and Sneha Prasanna in the lead roles and Urvashi, Samyuktha Hornad, Achyuth Kumar and Mandya Ramesh in supporting roles.
