Where did you watch this movie?

Interspersed with humour, this insightful and inspiring tale follows the trials and triumphs in the life of Maradonna (Santhanoo), an aimless youngster who likes to waste his time doing practically nothing other than fooling around. For him everything in life is Oru Rasam (just fun) and wants to take the easy way out and lacks focus in his life. He is the only son of Joseph (Lalu Alex) a Banker and Mary (Ambika) who dotes on him. The only person who has a soft corner for him is the beautiful Sofia (Nithya) who has a limp and is the daughter of a failed filmmaker Kuruvilla (Vijayaraghavan). Maradonna messes up his life by making friendships with the wrong crowd and starting an internet café that fails. To recoup his losses, he becomes attracted to 'easy money' and becomes involved in illegal and immoral activities like dealing drugs. Soon he is conned and loses everything after pledging his house to a ‘blade’ moneylender (Salim Kumar). Upon getting to know about this heartbreaking reality, his father is hospitalized and his mother finally loses faith in him. A shattered Maradonna decides to commit suicide by jumping from a lighthouse into the sea. As he is about to jump, he is held back by a divine force in the form of Angel John (Mohanlal), who offers him a new lease of life. How will Maradonna use his second chance?
