A full length comedy drama, the play presents Goddess Gajalakshmi Thaayar in an argumentative dialogue with Lord Venkatesa Perumal on how His devotees pray to Him only for materialistic gains & pleasures in life, full of expectations without any gratitude for what they already have been blessed with. Perumal refutes this accusation and challenges that He will prove Her wrong. The play goes on to show how Lord Venkatesa comes down to the Earth to stay with His devotees Aandal & Govind in their house and lives with them to observe their day today lives.
