The title is the address of a joint family, where the members of the family are all at loggerheads, fighting and arguing with each other. Their cook, has left them after a month because of the way he was treated, and it would seem that he has stayed longer than most of the previous cooks. The youngest member of the family is Radha (Deepu), a grand-daughter, whose parents died in an accident ? she is expected to do all the work, and is bullied and put upon by the rest of the family. Into this family comes Raghu (Sudeep), who wants to work as their cook. From the very start, he does everything possible to re-unite them, and to re-awaken their love for each other, which has been suppressed. That?s the basic plot.
This is a delightful film, directed Sudeep, who is excellent in the starring role. He is a very versatile actor, who has the art of being convincing as each different character he plays in different films. Deepu is also very convincing as the girl who is at the beck and call of the whole family, and who never complains, and cheerfully does everything she is asked to do. But the entire cast is excellent, each playing the unpleasant and argumentative character, before Raghu makes them all change, and then they become loving towards one another.
This is a film which should be watched again and again. What a pity there are not more people in the world like Raghu.
Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
