Taramani, set in an upmarket glossy IT hub of the same name in Chennai, narrates the life of Althea Johnson, a free-spirited lady. Althea, who works as a HR in a corporate, has undergone a lot of terrible experiences in life: divorced from a man with a hidden sexual orientation and estranged from parents who antagonize her in some of the most stereotypical manner. Into this predicament falls the carefree and chatty Prabhunath who meets Althea in the midst of a heavy rainfall, and captivates her attention by recounting his love failure.

Althea nonetheless is weary of a romantic relationship and is more on the looked for a kindred spirit. Nonetheless, she falls for him and thus begins another journey of love, heartbreak, self-doubt, and redemption. The film is a satirical take on modern day relationships that stereotype women, while showing the flawed face of men.

The narration also delves deep into ‘complex’ issues like globalization, demonetization, ego, desire, greed, lust, hypocrisy, compassion, frustration and more.
