an Indian dish made with highly seasoned rice and meat, fish, or vegetables
from Persian beryā(n) ‘fried, roasted’
Biriyani is the story of two friends, Sugan (Karthi) and Parasuram (Premgi Amaren, who has been in all five of director Venkat Prabhu’s film). They work, along with Sugan’s soon-to-be brother-in-law, for a company that sells farm equipment (I think? The showroom was full of tractors, anyway). The company is opening a new showroom in Ambur, so Sugan and Parasuram drive up there from Chennai. The guest of honour at the showroom opening is wildly successful businessman Varadharajan (Nassar) who takes a shine to Sugan. Sugan and Parasuram ditch a boring party following the opening and go in search of biriyani.
