This movie is depict the status of government schools in India. It speaks about the concerns of the students and the action to be taken. This is a state of the art movie, and a live sample of the education system in India and how it has to be designed. It is a story of a government school teacher Dhayalan (Samuthirakani) who is trying to bring the best from the students of a government school where he joined recently and make the school to believe with-in and grow inside. He is planting the confidence in all students and teachers and making everyone to work hard to prove themselves. The dialogs and the screen play is really awesome and powerful! This movie plants confidence and making the students to strive to reach the goal. Similar to all other movies, we have a Villon in this movie. Thambi Ramaiyah played this role (as Singam Perumal) very effectively. He is from the same village and working as an assistant head master (vice principal) of the school, trying to block all efforts of the new teacher to keep the power with himself. At one point he try to kill the teacher. But our hero planted a positive thinking on him and asking him to take care and lead the school. The characterization of the teacher (Samuthirakani) is similar to Che-Guevara! Che went to all places where there is a need to fight for the goodness. Similarly, the teacher is traveling to different schools willingly and trying to bring the best from the students and the teachers! This is a must watch movie! A good lesson to all students as well as teachers for how to behave and live as an example to the students!! When coming out from the theater, everyone feel satisfied and willing to do good to the society.
