Story & Reviews
The bilingual film is getting different responses in Tamil and Telugu states. It is being said that it is receiving more positive responses in AP and Telangana than in Tamil Nadu as Telugu director Anudeep is said to be a brand images for unique comedies and crisp one-liners.
The plot of the series revolves around an Indian man, Anbarasan, who falls in love with a British girl, Jessica. The catch here is that the boy’s father is unable to accept this romance because his (Anbu’s) grandfather fought against the British.
