The Hero Kannabiran(Suriya) commits several murders at the beginning of the film. Then the story moves backward. One of the southeastern districts of Tamil Nadu. There is a town belonging to Tamil cinema. Kannabiran was the son of the great man (Sathyaraj) of that town’s Advocate. He is in love with Adini (Priyanka Mohan). Meanwhile, Kannabiran’s uncle (Vela Ramamurthy) commits suicide with his family.
He dies in an accident shortly after another woman calls Kannabiran on the phone. Kannabiran begins to investigate the background. It seems that some people are carrying out a terror like the Pollachi incident there. What Kannabiran does is the rest of the story.
Within the first eight minutes a fight, a song is over. After that, the director takes a long time to tell about the towns where the story takes place and the enmity between those towns.
Then, the love scenes between the Hero and the heroine unfold on the screen without any novelty. This is where most of the film takes place, in the middle of which the villain makes his debut. The villain lives in a large sophisticated bungalow that does not fit neatly, even though the area where the villain is located looks like the town next door.
In one scene a teenager is rescued from the villains and produced in court. The judge has not yet arrived.
The man leaves after telling the nervous woman, ‘Here I come’, and goes on to another scene that does not fit the serious context.
In the first few scenes the villain kills his wife. When the father-in-law asks, he tells the driver that he has run away. The father-in-law does not speak until the climax of the film.
Suriya as Kannabiran and Priyanka Mohan as Adini have done well. Sathyaraj, Saranya, Prince, Devadarshini, M.S. People like Bhaskar also have the opportunity to star in the film.
