Where did you watch this movie?

This contemporary satire provocatively depicts the financial and artistic crisis which plagued the once glittering Malayalam film industry at the turn of the 21st century. It depicts the struggles of Udayabhanu (Mohanlal), who is an assistant director and script writer and who aspires to make it big. But he is thwarted in his attempts by a scheming friend and junior artiste, Rajappan Thengamoodu (Sreenivasan), who steals his script. Using the stolen script, Rajappan Thengummoodu becomes superstar Saroj Kumar overnight. Udayan is left heart-broken but fate comes in the form of Babykuttan who wants to produce a movie with Udayan in the director's seat. And when Superstar Saroj Kumar starts working in the film, things seem to be going according to plan. However, just as the project nears completion, Saroj walks out from the project due to an ego clash with Udayan. Now Udayan must shoot the rest of the movie without the knowledge of Saroj and complete his movie to reveal his immense talent to the public. Will he succeed?
