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

Beautiful Story With A Strong Message
19 December 2012 | by (INDIA) – See all my reviews

First of all i would like to congratulate the entire film crew for taking up a beautiful script and done it perfectly!

Cast: Vikram Prabhu: what else can he expect more than this from his debut movie! he has chosen his story carefully and has performed with brilliance. he just looks like mahout and has lived the character he played. wonderful film for him for his debut. hope he gets best debut actor award for playing his role naturally.

Lakshmi Menon: she has done a pretty fantastic job. her makeup and acting is so natural and she looks pretty. she looks exactly like a tribal girl.

Tambi Ramaiah and Asvin Raja: they have been there throughout the movie to make is engaged and laughing. good acting by them.

Direction and Screenplay: Prabhu Solomon has done his script carefully and taken it so beautifully so that even if it drags a bit, it keeps the people engaged to the movie. not even a single boring scene in the movie. he has used the special effects smartly in darkness so that it looks perfect

Music: Music by Imman is refreshing and became a huge hit among the audience. excellent reception for songs at theaters where they whistle and sing along the song! Imman has come up with another huge winner. There are tasteful melodies spread across the album while one nice foot tapping number is there as well.

Verdict: The film is a perfect family entertainer and also gives a strong message at the climax.It just shows the reality of current situation among youths. anyway the climax could have ended much more happier. nevertheless , the message conveyed gets into the mind of everyone:)

Go for the movie with your family and friends and i am sure you wont be disappointed. a good meaningful movie which must not be missed.
