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

Beautiful and Emotional relationship between Father and Daughter!
19 July 2011 | by (Chennai, India) – See all my reviews

I saw Deiva Thirumagal movie.... Mind blowing movie... I cried for a few minutes but i was happy to cry... I like Vikram but after watching his performance in this movie i become a great fan of him... I really admire him for his dedication and hard work towards cinema... Most surprising elements are Baby Sarah, Anushka, Amla Paul and Santhanam. Baby Sarah stole the show with her outstanding performance. Anushka proved she can do performance role with perfection too... Santhanam is a great actor not only for his humour and also for his serious acting skills... Best movie to describe the beautiful relationship between father and daughter... I can say that you will cry but you will be happy to cry that is special of this movie... This movie should deserve good Box Office Collections so please watch in theatre because this is Deiva Thirumagal and it is Aweeeeeeeeesome!!!!!! Thanks...
