Where did you watch this movie?

Liberally spiced with upbeat humour, this romantic drama follows the twists and turns in the life of Manohar (Karthik), who tough is a schoolteacher in a local town. He is a bachelor living along with his friends, Nassar, Junior Balaiya and Charlie. Manohar has had a troubled love-life, having lost his lover, Kasturi (Suchitra) in a car accident. His friends are wastrels who roam about the town, flirting with the local girls. During one such dalliance with an army officer, VK Ramaswamy's daughter, Kalyani (Bhanupriya), they are put behind the bars for a few days. Manohar also gets peeved with their behaviour and reprimands them for their uncouth behaviour. Humiliated, the friends decide to wreak their revenge on Manohar. They collude with Janagaraj, a clerk in a local bank and attempt to trick Manohar into believing that Kalyani is in love with him. A few anonymous letters later, the plan becomes successful. In the meantime, during the course of a few accidental events, Manohar comes across to Kalyani as a brave and resourceful hero. Impressed, she seeks his hand in marriage through the help of her father. This sudden development takes his scheming friends aback. They cook up evidence to convince Manohar that Kalyani is a woman of loose character. The gullible Manohar believes the subterfuge and cancels the plans of marriage. Despondent after the twin love failures in his life, Manohar attempts suicide in a hotel. Thinking he is dead, the friends flee the town to avoid police confrontations. Will Manohar survive to learn the truth about how his friends betrayed him? Will Manohar and Kalyani unite in the sacred bond of matrimony? Can they bring themselves to forgive Manohar's misguided friends?
