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

Fabulous! if only it weren't for the songs..
9 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

This movie was visually breath-taking and a fascinating portrayal of a culture long-gone. The story of the movie was simple yet extremely well-handled with all the main characters fully fleshed out. Even the minor characters (e.g. Vannapechi) were well-rounded due to excellent acting and a great script. My greatest issue with this movie was the songs. I was rather irritated that the director found it necessary to dumb down an excellent movie with silly song numbers that added absolutely nothing. The songs completely detracted from the pace of the movie as I had to get re-absorbed into the actual story after every song.

In summary, I loved the movie and I am even planning to re-watch it in the near future! I really hope that Vasanthabalan makes more fantastic movies like this and I am very much looking forward to his future endeavours.
