Un Samayal Arayil (English: In Your Kitchen) (titled Ulavacharu Biryani in Telugu and Oggarane in Kannada) is a trilingual romantic comedy film directed by Prakash Raj.
Kalidasan (Prakash Raj) works in the state archaeological department and is a food lover. His only companion is his cook, Servant (Thambi Ramaiah). Naveen (Tejus) is Kalidasan's nephew who comes to stay with him, while looking for a job.
Kalidasan has a normal life until he gets a mis-dialled phone call from Gowri (Sneha), a dubbing artiste living with her friend Meghna (Samyuktha).
Gowri rings to order a special Dosa (named "Thattil Kutti Dosa" in the film) from a restaurant, but gets Kalidasan instead. Their conversations do not go well at first, but a long-distance romance develops due to their common interest—cooking and food.
Kalidasan is a born gourmet while Gowri is indulging in culinary activities in memory of her dead mother. Kalidasan starts to let Gowri into the secrets of baking with a multi-layered cake called "Joan's Rainbow".
Kalidasan and Gowri both get the jitters before their first face-to-face meeting, as each becomes conscious of their own physical appearances, and both decide to send younger and better looking substitutes instead, Naveen and Meghna. When they meet, neither Naveen nor Meghna realise that the other person is a substitute, since they introduce themselves as Kalidasan and Gowri respectively.
Naveen thinks that Kalidasan is actually in love with Meghna, while Meghna thinks that Gowri is in love with Naveen. They attempt to sabotage their older counterpart's relationship by telling Kalidasan and Gowri respectively that the person they met would be unsuitable for them.
Kalidasan and Gowri try to forget each other, but fail, and they decide to call each other and meet anyway. Naveen and Meghna, who by this time had started to develop feelings for each other, are dejected upon hearing this and decide to leave the city so that their older counterpart may have a good relationship.
Did Kalidasan and Gowri meet each other is to be watched in big screens.
