Storyline

Bomman (Vikram Prabhu) a mahout and his pet elephant Manickam make a living out of performing in temples and film shootings. He is assisted by his uncle (Thambi Ramaiah) a drunkard and wastrel. Due to certain circumstances, they find themselves in a remote village protecting the villagers from a wild heard of elephants. Bomman knows that Manickam is not a trained Kumki elephant who can take on or stop the attack of the wild elephants. However he does not care as by then he has fallen madly in love with the village chieftain's daughter Alli (Lakshmi Menon). Meanwhile the villagers treat him like their saviour, as the wait begins for the wild elephant on rampage. Written by Karthik

Can watch once
15 December 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Do not expect much of attention to detail in this film. For instance, the lead actress is portrayed as a tribe, But her language includes some English words too.

Music is excellent. vikram Prabu needs to improvise on his acting skills especially performing emotional scenes. The location chosen is also very good, But again the details are missing, We expect a tattoo or a different style of speaking Tamil form tribes.

I think the movie was over hyped with the presence of Rajni, Kamal and others for the audio release and we expected a lot from the movie which hasn't been met. I would blame the director for dragging the story-line and making every next scene predictable.

Overall, the movie is not worth watching with a high priced ticket. I would say, WAIT UNTIL IT COMES ON IT AND I AM SURE THAT THIS WILL HAPPEN SOONER.
