Poova Thalaiya is the comedic story of a struggling Indian family that is trying to work through the fallout of death and reconfigured family structures. Varalakshmi (S. Varalakshmi) is a mother-in-law and matriarch trying to hold together and dominate a family that is not entirely her own. Her daughter has died, so she has now been functionally adopted by her son-in-law, Gemini (Gemini Ganesan), and his brother, Jaishankar (Jai Shankar). She also lives with her youngest daughter, Nirmala (Nirmala). Her son-in-law does his best to maintain equilibrium while mourning the loss of his wife and still managing the complications of family life, but Varalakshmi insists on ruling the home. When her son-in-law disagrees with her, she takes it out on his brother. The triangulation between them is as hilarious as it is frustrating. To make matters worse, Varalakshmi's older daughter has returned home looking to reunite with her mother. Everyone else had thought she was dead, because that was what Varalakshmi told them when she decided to disown her.moreless
