Storyline

The film set in 18th century is all about a group of people who steals from the wealthy to provide food and shelter for their tribe. Kombodhi (Pasupathy) is the gang leader and during one of his missions he meets the brave Varupuli (Aathi). He brings Varupuli to his village and a bond develops between the two. But Varupuli has a past and his real name is Chinna. For the death of a youth (Thogaimayan) from neighbouring village, the King had in fact ordered one youth to be given as offering to the Almighty and Chinna was the choice. Sequence of events lead to Chinna escaping from the offering only to find out the mystery behind Thogaimayan's death. But that was too late as too many things happened in his village by then. Now he goes on the hiding. Cut to present, Chinna is taken to be offered to God. What happens then forms the climax. Written by Captain

A must watch (but not without its share of flaws)
3 June 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

First things first,kudos to G.Vasanthabalan and team for their admirable attempt to recreate s.venkatesan's sahitya academy award winning novel kaaval kottam.The casting is near perfect with Aadhi ,Barath,Dhanshikha and Pasupathy.I am not going to give away the story,watch it for yourself.The art director and the cinematographer(Siddharth) deserve special mention.This movie is not for the average moviegoer who is accustomed to gravity-defying stunts, over the top heroism ,gaana\kuthu songs, so its not surprising that this movie did not fare well in the box office.The movie also conveys a valid and relevant message at the end.

On the flip side the director (and the editor) could have made the movie shorter as the movie spans over 2.5 hours .Kathik's re-recording has nothing to write home about.Songs also act as speed breakers at times.Singampuli's characterization could have been handled better

Lets hope that the box office failure of this movie does not thwart the director to stop from making good movies like this...
