Nayanthara’s 75th film, Annapoorani: The Goddess of Food, released in theatres today. Audiences have given the yum-musing, food-focused film that Nilesh Krishnaa is directing mixed to positive reviews, calling it a lighthearted, enjoyable movie that is only worth watching once. However, due to a lack of promotions for Lady Superstar’s film, the movie has not garnered much attention. 


Starring Nayanthara and Jai in lead roles, here's what Twitteratis feel after watching the food-drama.

The Nayanthara-starrer, which was released on December 1, revolves around her titular character, Annapoorani. She hails from an orthodox upper-caste family and aspires to become a chef. But when she realises that this might involve cooking meat, which is forbidden in her family, she keeps her passion a secret. However, her secret is revealed after an accident. Speaking about Nayanthara's character in the film, director Nilesh said in an interview, “Annapoorani is the story of an upper-caste girl who hails from an orthodox family. She wants to become a chef. The film centres around her struggle in the male-dominated culinary world, where she has to cook non-vegetarian dishes as well.”

Nayanthara and Jai, who last shared screen space in the 2013 blockbuster film Raja Rani, reunite on screen after 10 years for Annapoorani. Interestingly, according to director Nilesh, it was Nayanthara who recommended bringing Jai on board. “Nayanthara ma’am suggested that Jai play the role of Farhaan in the film," said Nilesh.

Also starring in the film are Achyuth Kumar, KS Ravikumar, Sathyaraj, and Redin Kingsley. Thaman has composed the music, while Sathyan Sooryan has handled the cinematography. 

Nayanthara’s upcoming projects

The Jawan star will next be seen in producer-turned-director Sashikanth's film Test, in which she shares screen space with R Madhavan and Siddharth. The movie’s team recently released her first-look poster for the film on her birthday (November 18). The Iraivan actress is also very busy with the filming of her Dude Vicky-directed movie Mannangatti Since 1960. The film also stars Yogi Babu, Devadarshini, Gouri Kishan, and Narendra Prasath.
