Embedded with intense emotion and fierce action, this haunting social saga delves into the sensitive subject of bias against Tamil in Tamil Nadu, due to rampant westernisation and materialistic lifestyles in modern Tamil society. The stigma and double standards faced by those educated in Tamil-medium schools is explicitly highlighted through the tragic events in the life of Prabhakar (Jiiva), an orphan who is brought up by a Tamil teacher and subsequently becomes passionate about the Tamil language and goes on to become masters graduate in Tamil. This heart-wrenching tale plots Prabhakar's struggles throughout life, his tragic love affair with Anandhi (Anjali) and the terrible sequence of events that gradually causes him to deteriorate into a psychopathic serial killer, who later confesses to killing 22 people in cold blood. What horrific events could have turned a gentle and passionate young boy into a mass murderer?Written by
A movie which came up with zero expectations and was highly acclaimed for its shear class.I was really surprised by the fact that this movie was made by a new comer.Everything in this movie is perfect.Story,Screenplay,Direction,Editing,Music,Cinematography and so on.
I need to give a special mention about Yuvan Shankar Raja's music.He suddenly drifted from his stereo type techno genres to this breath taking unorthodox use of violins and flutes.A music which will make u vibrate,Make u cry,make u feel the pain of love and what not.Hats off to him.
One big reason i went for this movie is Sreehar Prasad.A six time national award winner has proved his class once again.
The actors were just on target without overdoing their part and were perfectly suiting the roles.
The director truly is precious gem to the Tamil cinema and has really got the potential to take Indian cinema to world stage.
In spite of great reviews and acclaims,this movie wasn't a commercial success and didn't get any awards.This really pricks me each and every time i watch this movie.Such good and bold cinema can come in Tamil or rather in India only if their hard work is recognised.
