The film features the story of Tukaram and Madhura, two strangers in the city who are brought together by the kind of happenstance that makes the magic of fairy tales. As an archaeologist, Tukaram is much more concerned by the warp of weft of stone and entirely unconcerned by the lack of social milestones marking his journey. Madhura is an RJ, a voice that the whole city knows and recognises but with a stranger's face. Set in a world dotted by people who are misfits much like our protagonists, it is finally food that will bind these characters. Nana Patekar plays the character of Tukarma while Shriya Saran plays the character of Madhura. Tadka is directed by Prakash Raj.
