Storyline

The plot revolves round the life of Karthik (Dhanush) a struggling freelance photographer in Chennai who does portfolios, weddings and other functions. Karthik has a keen interest in wild life photography and friends call him a genius, though he is bit of a loner. His role model is Madhesh Krishnaswamy (Ravi Prakash), a world renowned wildlife photographer and his dream is to be an assistant to this arrogant man. Karthik hangs out with his friends and is extremely close to Sundar (Sundar) who introduces his girlfriend Yamini (Richa) to the gang. Initially Karthik and Yamini can't stand each other but there lies the twist, when opposites attract. Written by Captain

Richa Gangopadhay is she a débutante? Unbelievable Emotive reactions are masterpiece

Dhanush Performance was amazing it shows that he must not act films like papilla , vinegar.

The movie can be scored much more in back ground music, Even GV has done a great work, still this subject has a great value for BGM. If music composed by U1 the movie would taken a little bit high

Cinematography by Ramji its just amazing, It Gives soul to the Screen.

Selva had given a great Movie, he penned a wonderful story Hats off to him.
