Storyline

Krishna (Vikram), who has the mental maturity of a five-year-old, works in a chocolate factory in Ooty. His wife delivers a baby girl and dies. The girl, Nila (Sara) is brought up in his own way by Krishna. He showers all his love and care on her. But fate takes a quick turn. Nila's grandfather Rajendran (Sachin Khedkar), a powerful and influential man in society, enters the scene. Fearing that his grand daughter is not safe under a mentally-challenged dad, he takes away the girl from Krishna. His other daughter Shwetha (Amala Paul) takes care of the child. Krishna runs from pillar to post to get back his daughter. He gets acquainted with advocate Anuradha (Anushka) and Vinod (Santhanam), her junior. They listen to Krishna's past and promise that they would do their best to get back the custody of Nila. Bashyam (Nasser), a leading advocate, appears for Rajendran. The rest is legal battle and arguments in court and who wins at last. Written by Raju

After Kannathil Muthamital, This is the only film which brought tears in my eyes.
18 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

I know am not the first to start praising about Deivathirumagal, still this movie deserves appreciation from every cell of my body. Am not ashamed to make it public that I was in tears through out the film. It was a spectacular display of emotions by both the father and the daughter. A beautifully crafted relationship. Vikram surpassed Sean Penn by truly living the character on the screen. Baby Sarah, no wonder you performed exceedingly cute, considering the fact that acting runs in the family blood. You have made your daddy proud. Director Vijay too needs kudos for keeping the movie clean from scratch till the end. All in all, a wonderful experience. So good to see Tamil Cinema heading in the right direction. Vikram, no one could have done that role better than you, and you never fail to impress me.
