Story Details
Durai returns to his village from Malaysia after 20 years in the pretext of getting married. However, his prime aim is to conduct jallikattu along with the panchayats of five neighbouring villages and fulfill his father's dream. Will he succeed?
Others Comment:
This is Captain Vijayyakanth's son Shanmuga Pandian's second film, and he easily slips into the role of a youngster wanting to re-establish ties with his roots. His tall frame and physique work in his favour, especially in the action scenes, but his dialogue delivery lacks punch. Despite his best efforts, he looks a tad uncomfortable in front of the camera. Even if it's just reeling off the names and varieties of bulls, he seems to be working too hard to get it right! Debutante Meenakshi, as his love interest, is an interesting find — she has an impish charm, and complements Shanmuga Pandian in the romantic sequences. She and Bala Saravanan (as Durai's friend, Kodhandam) have us chucking through the film. Vela Ramamoorthy, Mime Gopi, PL Thenappan (as another village chief, Perumal) and Marimuthu (as Durai's uncle, Pattaiyaar) hold their own fort and look convincing playing their part. However, who truly scores in the film is Samuthirakani; as the persistent do-gooder, he fights for the right — the right to peacefully conduct jallikattu, and also for the right, against the wrong. Despite appearing in the film in just a few scenes, his character has a strong presence throughout the script. If there's a second hero in the film, it's Santhosh Dhayanidhi's refreshing folk tunes; his bit songs add to the scenes.
