The movie is about a loyal servant, Muthu (Rajni), working for Zamindar Malayasimman (Sarath Babu) and the cunning plans by the uncle of Malasimman to capture the whole wealth which uncovers some mystery about Muthu.
Senthil and Ganga marry against the wishes of their extended family, and move into a mansion right next to where the cousin intended as Senthil's bride Shweta lives. Several members of Shweta's family are miffed at Senthil's "unauthorized" wedding, and his mother start's fearing for the newlyweds' safety when they move next-doors to their cousins. Soon after moving into their new house, strange things start happening, whether these are caused by the apparent ghost of a former occupant, Chandramukhi, or any one of the suspicious members of the extended family, will be looked into by "psychiatrist extraordinaire" Dr. Sarvanan.

When the movie hit the screens, Rajnikant himself was not sure if it will become a hit. By any standards, this was something unusual. Rajni's movies - even if they are crap - usually runs for 100 days. There was a reason why everone was so anxious about this movie. 1. Rajni's earlier movie, BABA, was a FLOP. (Though i loved it.) 2. This was a remake of the Malayalam hit movie, Manichitrathazh. 3. This did not have any of Rajni's stunts. (that which generally portrays him as a demi God with supernatural fight scenes and punch dialogues)
Honestly, it was exciting to see Rajinikanth showing his acting talents in a controlled manner. His screen presence was simply amazing.
Rajnikanth as Vettaya Maharaja - This alone gives you a feeling of the money well spent. (Laka Laka sequence)
I am not giving 10 for this because of vulgarity in Vadivelu's comedy.
