Not bad if you like Tamil commercial movies
3 March 2012 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

I think this was Prashanth's last big hit. Any way He had been MIA for a while and had two big releases recently both of which well didn't stay long in the movie theaters. Its sad because luck has not been on his side professionally and personally.Winner is what Prashanth can do if he had good material to work with.The story is simple a city guy goes to visit his wealthy grandparents after a long time and falls in love with a girl belonging to a family of thugs who love taking out their "aruvaals" for making a point.It worked because of the packaging of the movie.It's biggest strength was Vadivel. Even Vivek fans will agree that he was extremely funny in this movie. Together with the glamorous Kiran and some decent songs, Sundar.c made a winner out of the movie.
