Manjapai (Eng: Yellow Bag) is a 2014 Indian Tamil comedy movie directed by N. Ragavan. Produced by Thirupathi Brothers and A Sarkunam Cinemaz, it stars Vimal, Rajkiran and Lakshmi Menon. The film saw its worldwide release on 6 June 2014. The film was remade in Telugu as Errabus with Vishnu Manchu and Dasari Narayana Rao.
The film starts with Tamil (Vimal) who is raised single-handedly by his grandfather, Venkatasamy(Raj Kiran) in a village, as his parents had committed suicide after eloping and giving birth to him. 25 years later the boy is working in a Chennai-based IT company, staying in an modern upmarket apartment. Tamil meets Karthika (Lakshmi Menon) a medical student using tricks to get to the front of the traffic signal. They fall in love at first sight, and end up being so engrossed in each other that they don’t realise that the signal had gone green. The way Karthika tricks the police officer and gets away with it endears Tamil to Karthika. He follows her and in no time she reciprocates.
Meanwhile, at work, Tamil is selected to go to US in three-month project and he brings Venkatasamy to the city to spend quality time before he leaves for US. Venkatasamy, coming from a rustic background, is unfamiliar with the urban lifestyle of people in a modern city.
He even bathes and washes his clothes at a fountain causing much embarrassment to Tamil which he does not share with Venkatasamy. He causes further hardship by disturbing Tamil during his date with Karthika, causing a breakup between them. Venkatasamy infuriates Tamil further by slapping Karthika’s father, an Assistant Commissioner of Police, for allowing his daughter wear short clothes in public. Tamil pleads with Karthika and finally she forgives him.
Tamil spends many a sleepless night working on a project on his laptop. Venkatasamy assumes the laptop to be a sandwich grill and without knowing how to use it, he puts it on the stove causing the laptop to explode into pieces, thus destroying the project work. Tamil gets fired from his job resultantly but he hides his anger and frustration from Venkatasamy,
