Nachiappan is a wealthy and successful Indian American restaurateur based in Los Angeles, USA. He has two sons– Vishwanathan "Visu" and Ramamoorthy "Ramu"– who are identical twins. They both are medical students and spend their evenings helping out their father alongside the restaurant's chief cook, Juno. One evening, when Visu & Ramu go to the airport to do their lunch supply, Visu sees an Indian family from Chennai– Madhumitha "Madhu", her younger brother Madhesh, and their grandmother Krishnaveny– having some problems with the immigration authorities. Ramu pitches in to help and learns that they just flew in from India so that Krishnaveny can undergo a surgery to remove her brain tumour. After many confusions, the trio meet with Ramu also. The twins arrange for the three to reach their host.
