Story of Makaramanju Malayalam movie
The story revolves around the love stories of a painter and his creation. The painter Raja Ravi Varma is in the process of painting a masterpiece. The painting's theme is that of the Pururavasu, the renowned king who fell in love with the beautiful nymph Urvasi. Urvashi was sent to the earth in form of a village belle by the celestial beings who were not happy about the fact that Pururavasu was able to communicate with nature, birds and animals and they wanted to break this charm that the king possessed. When the king professes his love to Urvashi, she agrees to become his wife if certain conditions are fulfilled but she disappears from the scene when she realises that the conditions have been broken. A shattered Pururavasu roams around the entire place searching for his lost love and finally succeeds in finding her. This is one of the love stories. The other part is that of the painter of the masterpiece, Raja Ravi Varma who gets attracted to his model Anjali (Karthika) and both of them become passionately in love with each other. They find it difficult to detach from each other. The love of the painter and his model acquires certain shades from the painting of Urvashi and Pururavasu.
