Storyline

Based in Chennai, plainclothes police officer Pugazh slays Raka, a male wanted by Inter-pol, during the Shri Ganesh Visarjan. This news alerts his associates, some of who become alert, while others relieved, and Pugazh is instructed to proceed with his next target. The latter then meets with Janavi and both eventually fall in love. She then lets him speak with her wealthy Munich-based father, J.D., who instructs them to come home. Once there, he displays his disapproval for Pugazh. Unable to get close to his target, his stay is prolonged, prompting his mother to also travel there. And it is her arrival that will dramatically alter the entire situation - changing everyone's lives forever. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

please stop making movies like this.
4 July 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

now let me say, when kuruvi came out in 2008 i thought there cant be a worse movie than that..but i have to give credit to director prabhudeva and actor vijay for breaking it..it was a tedious task for the audience to sit in the theater for digesting such a non-sense of a movie..this movie gives importance to the usual punch dialogues(could drive you crazy for hours), comical stunt scenes...etc the comedy scenes could have been better..vadivel was at his irritating best..the movie shows some level of vulgarity, it could concern some audiences..nayanthara has proved she has the ability to do some lame acting and pathetic dancing.. vijay now has a series of flops starting from azhagiya tamil magan..its time for him to look in to some serious subjects rather than making non-sense movies and making the audiences fools by watching this garbage...

my rating for villu....1/10
