A don sends three criminals to recover a treasure buried by his grandfather in a village. A fourth criminal joins the trio en route, and they decide to hoodwink the don and share the treasure between themselves.
Others Comment:
Refreshingly, the focus is not just on the hero, but on all the four characters who make up the team. Kalyaan realises that each one is a protagonist, and gives them an introduction scene each. The actors pitch in wholeheartedly and turn in engaging performances (even Hansika gets her lip-sync right!). Revathy, especially, lets her hair down and has a ball playing Masha, who, it is implied, is the 40-something version of the spunky, chirpy character that the actress played in Arangetra Velai. That said, there is something amiss with the film; it isn't as wacky as its premise sounds, and not as funny as it could have been. The writing isn't compelling enough and there are stretches where the loudness in the humour comes close to being juvenile. A duet in the second half only serves to increase the duration. But, luckily for us, there is a laugh just around the corner of an unengaging scene and this keeps the film entertaining while it lasts.
