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)

Remake movie hero getting flop in original script
9 August 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

By mistake I watched this movie, many got out during break time itself. Many actions are not acceptable like hero drive water bike under ship ,he will stand middle of the place where bombs will explode around him.. like many unwanted scenes… This team still thinks that Tamil people are uneducated and seems like we will believe all their lies. Comedy was worst too by vadivel. I feel this hero can act only in remake movies from other languages, he cant win in original scripts. I really had worst time watching it.

Most amazing scene was nayandara will get electric power attack, vijay will get kiss from nayandara with the help of electric power attack. when we watch this, we still cant understand why many are killed by eletric power attack :)
