The story of two brothers, Thiru Murthy (Madhavan) and Guru Murthy (Aarya) who are poles apart in character. Their father was a constable but after his demise, Thiru takes on the same duty. Due to his lack of bravery, Thiru find it difficult to fight crime in his town. It is in these times that Guru who is not a cop steps up and assists his elder brother. As Guru wins many of his brother's battles with crime, the accolades are showered though on Thiru to an extent that he is promoted as the Superintendent of Police. The turning point in the story arises when Thiru is caught off guard and brutally thrashed. It now becomes imperative for Guru to build his brothers courage to face his fears and overcome them. This point onwards we see Thiru stand tall and brave and how he along with Guru tackle the villains who are out to hunt them down. Written by UTV Motion Pictures

A Festive Movie
6 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

The multistarrer with Arya and Madhavan playing the lead has the typical makings of a Lingusamy film. The casting of Madhavan and Arya was good, but their acting skills have not been put to much use. Although the film starts on an interesting note it soon takes a very predictable story-line. The director has also included an equal number of songs for both the lead pairs :Arya- Amala and Madhavan-Sameera in order to give them equal weight- age. As the film moves on the action sequences become a bit boring but the good editing and camera work captures our interest back. Released on a festive season the film gives the people that mood and surely wouldn't be that bad an outing for anyone.
