Where did you watch this movie?

This upbeat romantic tale follows the love story of Velayudhankutty (Jayaram) who loves Ammini (Sitara). As per tradition, she is his 'murappennu’ - his uncle’s daughter and therefore automatically considered to be his bride-to-be. All should have been well, except that the Uncle (Innocent) has different plans for his daughter. Vexed with his uncle's repeated rejection, poor Velayudhan goes to Palani in Tamil Nadu and becomes a barber tonsuring the heads of thousands of pilgrims, which prompts him to write home claiming to have become the ‘head cleaner’ in a large electronics factory. Anandavalli (Urvashi), his employer’s daughter, falls for him. Will Velayudhan remain true to his childhood love, or agree to marry Anandavalli out of gratitude for his employer?
