Rearing roosters, maintaining them and using them for fights are a way of life and a matter of honor and lifeline to many people. In such a tenement, Pettaikaaran (Jayabalan) leads a very respectable life with his key aides Durai (Kishore) and Karuppu (Dhanush) along with others. His main adversary in hen fights is Rathinam, the police inspector. Pettaikaarar is known to have an impeccable track record of successes when it comes to fowl fights especially with Rathinam's. In an unexpected situation, Pettaikaaran challenges Rathinam to a fowl contest which witnesses Karuppu violating his mentor Pettaikaarar's word but emerging successfully with enviable proceeds. This results in the swelling of his status among his folks which plants the seeds of animosity in the minds of Pettaikaaran. What follows is an interesting and unexpected path with twists and turns highlighting on the way the multiple layers of human emotions with sense playing truant. Written by
Once we know, Tamil cinema is filled with actors and directors, who concentrate on movies, which concentrated on unbelievable fight scenes and songs in unusual circumstances. But i can see that it is slowly moving into the other side of the cinema, which touches the heart of normal people and in the mean time giving what they need. The movie must have been a complete drama or power packed actions, but the director he brilliantly made this movie in neither of the genre but mixes several genre like action, drama, romance, thriller etc in a single movie but concentrating more on the thrill in the drama, which is very rare in world movies. The songs are beautiful and he used it at right times. Brilliant performance by dhanush, haven't seen him doing a believable performance in many of his movies. In this movie, he was perfect in most of the scenes with his dialogues. But the best part is the movie is not just concentrated on a single character of the movie(99% of Tamil movies will have a story centers around a single character) but it focuses on multiple characters. The other actors performed equally and some better than dhanush. the movie deserves many awards and for sure it is a path breaking movie in Tamil cinema.
