Storyline

Pagalavan, Kesavan and Sekar are three friends, who lose their jobs in Chennai due to certain circumstances. Then they come across Das (Vijay Sethupathy), who runs a smart kidnap for ransom scam. Naturally his crime flourishes, and the three friends team up with him. Their path crosses with that of Arumai Prakasam, son of the state finance minister. Denied capital by his very strict father to start his business Arumai Prakasam stages his own kidnap, but ends up in the hands of Das and co. The comedy of errors takes a turn when the finance minister wants to catch the culprits, and gives the task to a very strict, encounter specialist cop, Brahmma. How Das and co try to stay ahead of the cop and how he nabs them, and what happens forms the rest of the story. Written by Bhama Ravi

'Crime does pay' so does this movie...
28 August 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Wow... finally a breakthrough . For us Tamilians the time has come to bid adieu to Hollywood movies from directors like Guy Ritchie for we've got one here. Definitely a world class characterization filled with black comedy with no words to describe. Vijay Sethupathy does it again selecting an excellent script. Everyone in the movie has a definite role. The Indian political 'Thamasha' is dealt superbly with a couple of scenes near the climax. There are a number of favorite scenes in this movie but the best was at the CM's office talking to his minister and the son (I avoid spoiler by not saying more).I paid 150 bucks to watch this movie at a local theater. This movie paid well and even more, for a movie fan like me. Waiting eagerly for more movies of this sort from the team.
