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
i was really impressed with the level of sophistication in the movie's plot. this is definitely among the better performances dhanush has given in his career, and he really captures the imagination of the audience. he really gels with his character, giving a realistic feel that stayed in my mind long enough to give this movie a review.
the integrated songs are also a welcome change from the typical cut and migrate to different country kind of songs that tamil viewers are so used to. and viewers will certainly enjoy the dance sequences:)
the masterful capture of emotions in the second part of the movie and the parallels drawn to rooster fighting are a treat to movie fans who expect more from their movie experience. all in all, a must see for all, for the casual entertainment seeker, or the serious movie buff.
