Chocolate is a 2001 Tamil film directed by A. Venkatesh featuring Prashanth and Jaya Re in the lead roles. Livingston, Suhasini, Mumtaj and Nagendra Prasad play supporting roles, while the film's score and soundtrack are composed by Deva.
Aravind (Prashanth) meets Anjali (Jaya Re) & falls in love at first sight without knowing her background. When this two meets Anjali tells Aravind that she would like to go for a trial-romance for a week, which might lead to a long-term romance, for which Aravind agrees.
Meanwhile, Anjali is the daughter of Jayachandran (Livingston) – (the Commissioner of Police) & Saradha (Suhasini) who are separated, but not legally divorced. Jayachandran wants his wife back, but she does not wish to reconcile with him for obvious reasons. Aravind maintains a cordial acquaintance with both of them, not knowing that Anjali is their daughter. Anjali constantly declines to acknowledge them as her parents until they reunite, hence she stays in a hostel. Jayachandran convinces Anjali to dispense with this trial romance, & make a deeper commitment as he finds Aravind a gentleman. Aravind vows to convince Anjali's mother Saradha to support him as her suitor. But Saradha hunt for a bridegroom in London for Anjali & plots to assassinate Aravind. Whether Saradha’s plans succeeds or Aravind & Anjali unite is the rest of the story…
