Aasha Latha is living with her son after getting separated from her husband Damodaran. Latha's son falls in love with a girl and she too accepts his proposal happily. Soon, families of the young couple come forward to fix a date for their marriage. One day, the girl's family and Latha's son pay a visit to a temple where a relative of his lover talks bad about his father Damodaran. He soon leaves the place upset over the incident.
Despite his lover's constant attempts to calm him down, Latha's son heads to his mother's village to find out more about him. In the flashback, it is revealed that his father Damodaran was unemployed and doesn't come forward to help his father with agriculture. He then comes across Latha one day in a college in his village and soon falls in love with her. She rejects him out of fear over her brother, who has strong caste feelings. However, Damodaran doesn't stop pursuing her and she accepts him in due time. They then decide to get married and start a life of their own together. That is when Latha's brother separates them and she raises her son without revealing who her father is. Whether Latha's son finally meets his father and gets to be together with the girl he loves forms the rest of the plot of Indhira Kobai.
Be it in the romantic scenes or when he is shown practicing agriculture, Damodharan has matured immensely in his performance. Aasha Latha has played her role without any hiccups throughout the course of the narrative. Other cast members have played their parts well as required.
Director Vijay. T. Alexander's attempt to make a film that focuses on not having caste feelings and embrace agriculture is praiseworthy. Although there are romantic sequences, they make us cringe on many occasions. The dialogues are a big plus, but the filmmaker has been unable to give them a strong punch in visuals. Ronald Reagan scores in the background score department, but his songs are not in the same league. Vellai Kesavan's cinematography skills come to the fore and he has shot the film well.
In short, Indhira Kobai can be given a skip.
