Storyline

Kalidasan (Lal) is a chronic bachelor working in the state Archaeological department and is a foodie. His only companion is his cook cum confidant Babu (Baburaj). Manu Raghav (Asif Ali) is Kalidasan's nephew and he comes to his uncle's place, while searching for a job. Kalidasan's boring life gets an altogether different twist with a wrong call from Maya (Shweta Menon), a spinster who is a dubbing artiste, living as a paying guest with her friend Meenakshi (Mythili). It all starts when Maya dials for a dosa and gets Kalidasan on line, instead of the food joint. As expected, the initial conversations between these two unusual characters create negative vibes and are peppered with choice abuses, but a long-distance romance develops because they have a similar interest-cooking and food. If Kalidasan is a born foodie, Maya is reaching for her late mother by indulging in culinary activities which evoke a sense of deep nostalgia in her.

taste it, love it, cherish it..
13 August 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Its been a while, or rather put it this way, never enjoyed a movie so regaling in a long time. A light-hearted story with some beautiful moments, non fictitious dialogs, nice songs and an ensemble cast so congruent with portraying the ones we see in our daily lives. The movie s never a simulation, which is probably the best thing about it. A story which is thematically simple - Living to eat rather than eating to live, the long lost love interest, the psychological block and then being in love - and is depicted many a time in malayalam movies still imprints on us a fresh flavour, courtesy the crafty direction and some fabulous portrayals. Lal, Asifali, Swetha menon are all nothing less than awesome. Awing was Baburaj,would be easily his most remembered character. No characters wasted but kalpana, Vijayaraghavan impressive in his short appearance. The final performance by The Avial Band glued well, to my surprise. Crispier editing would have made the movie a class apart. Cinematography and background score needs special mention. Putting together, Salt'n'Pepper is one of those better romantic comedies, if not the best, you would get to see in malayalam. Foodies or non-foodies!! You'll definitely relish the feast.
