This tale of domestic catastrophe & deluded match-making is set in South India. Police sub-inspector (ret) R.M. Swaminathan has lost his job after suffering a stroke. Then a mysterious white man falls from a hotel and dies in front of him…
Swami & Amma's eldest daughter, Jodhi’s engagement to a Very, Very Good Boy, Mohan, is put under threat when the white man dies. Foreign embassies are putting pressure on the police to investigate, but local bigwig DDR doesn’t want anyone to link his hotel with the death. So Swami receives a visit from his police colleague, KP. Murugesan, he of the magnificent moustache.
