Where did you watch this movie?

J. C. Daniel goes to great lengths to make a movie. He sells everything to make his dream a reality, further borrowing money to meet the expenses. When finally 'Vigathakumaran' is screened at capitol, a 'cinemapura', the upper cast members of the audience creates a ruckus over a lower cast girl acting as a Nair lady. Rosie, the lead in the film, hunted by the Madambis leaves town never to be seen again. Years later, the shriveled, poverty ridden Daniel, with only his wife Janet by his side, is leading a life far removed from what he had envisaged. Chelangatt Gopalakrishnan's interest in Daniel's life, his efforts to give him his due and the flashbacks to the incidents in Daniel's life after 'Vigathakumaran' form the rest of the movie.
