Annapoorani Movie Story & Review

Annapoorani is a young chef with big dreams. He is inspired by his father, who cooks food for devotees in a temple. Annapoorani wants to be like her hero Chef Anand Sundararajan and reach the top as a chef.

But there is a problem. Annapoorani’s family eats only vegetarian food and her father would not let her even go near meat. Despite this, he is determined to become a chef.

Annapoorani secretly joins a cooking course at the university, pretending to learn something else to please her family. But her father found out and pressured her into an arranged marriage.

Instead of giving up, Annapoorani runs away to Chennai with her friend. He gets a job in the same hotel where Chef Anand works.

Annapoorani works hard and attracts the attention of the President of France. He has been promoted to the role of a top chef.

But then, jealousy comes. Chef Anand’s son Ashwin is trying to ruin his career. He stages an accident, and Annapoorani loses her sense of taste.

Even though it is difficult, Annapoorani does not give up. She works hard and becomes one of the best chefs of India, proving that determination beats all odds.
