Oru Naal Koothu (One Day's Ado) is a 2016 Indian Tamil-language romantic comedy-drama film directed by Nelson Venkatesan and produced by J. Selva Kumar, featuring Dinesh, Miya, Nivetha Pethuraj, and Riythvika in lead roles. The title references the fuss over the wedding day of an Indian marriage. The story is based on the experiences of Nelson Venkatesan himself. The film released on 10 June 2016 to positive reviews from critics.
Three women face challenges in their process of getting married. Rajkumar (Dinesh), who is in love with his colleague Kavya (Nivetha Pethuraj), is reluctant to marry her, owing to her superior economic background, so much so that he delays talks of marriage. Lakshmi (Miya) is visited by several suitors, and every one of them is rejected by her father (Nagineedu), whose greediness makes him wait every time for a suitor who is per the family's status. Bhaskar (Lingesh) agrees to marry Susheela (Riythvika) but gets cold feet and ends up cancelling the marriage, insulting Susheela every time she demands an explanation. The story unfolds, telling how each of the protagonists attempts to fight the dogma of arranged marriage. Finally, Susheela's brother convinces Bhaskar to agree to marry Susheela, but she rejected the marriage because she is now in love with Sathish (Ramesh Thilak)
