Nayanthara stars as Annapoorani, an aspiring chef, in Nilesh Krishnaa's film.

While her passion and the challenges of her orthodox background are evident,

the film's execution often feels rushed and lacks depth .

Key moments, like Annapoorani's rapid rise to a five-star kitchen, seem implausible.

Despite addressing gender dynamics in the culinary world, the film misses deeper insights.

Nayanthara shines in her 75th film, but the narrative feels disjointed.

"Annapoorani" offers a moderate cinematic experience and is currently in cinemas.
