Storyline

Impoverished people in modern secular India find their wishes being fulfilled after leaving a written request at a Bhagwan Shri Murugan/Shivji Mandir. A disbelieving DIG of Police instructs his team to investigate but ends up frustrated when they themselves become believers and devotees. He then assigns this case to Ravi Sharma, an atheist, with hopes of apprehending the suspect, a CBI Officer, Kanthaswamy/Krishna, who works with the Economics Offenses Wing, and had publicly exposed many high-profile cases, including the wealthy Ponnusamy/Padmanath. This results in the latter getting paralyzed and his enraged daughter, Subbalakshmi, swearing to avenge this humiliation by attempting to ensnare Kanthaswamy in a web of lies and deceit - while the police continue to be baffled by repeated sightings of a caped crusader - who not only appears to have superpowers but can also fly.

An epileptic suizure waiting to happen!
28 November 2011 | by (Mumbai, India) – See all my reviews

There is no doubt that this is a bad movie, so why bother writing any more about it? well for on thing, the editing is the worst kind possible, the screen is flickering and flashing ALL the time, not just for special action scenes, but for every scene, the brightness is out of control and the flicker is introduced to make the movie seem interesting and fast...

the editing is also choppy, the cuts are in milli seconds throughout and the comedy track just shoved in forcefully....

vikram has a good look in this movie, but for decent movies in the same genre see, aparichit (vikram), nayak (anil kapoor), hindusthani (kamal hassan) (all the above are by shankar)
