Storyline

Fresh printed bank notes to the value of incredible 10 billion rupies are stolen in India from a train by the henchmen of super-gangster Vikram living in London. The code card only being able to open the container with the money comes into the possession of beautiful Chandralekha. On the way to Vikram she comes across the two thieves Kadir and Azhagu who are on the run from the police - having in tow country-girl Rajathi whom they kept from committing suicide and who then ran away from her ruthless uncle. After some attempts of cheating each other Chandralekha is making friends with the thieves. When she discovers that Vikram is stopping at nothing - especially not at dead bodies - on his hunt after the loot, she informs the three others about the real value of the code card. In the following pursuit between Vikram, the four heroes and a special police brigade which has to get back the money before a state crisis comes about, not only fierce action, but also love comes to its own.

A movie, technically completely ahead of its time...!!!!
29 July 2015 | by mohit-sai6See all my reviews

This movie needs to be praised for its technical brilliance and camera work, which is way ahead of its time. Exotic locations and the music makes it a better experience. The light hearted humor and some thrilling elements makes it a good watch. This movie gradually achieved a cult status and is considered to be a pathbreaking road film, which explains why the movie did not do well at the box office. The whole movie runs on the basis of a very simple script. based on the classic, 'Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid', the director does a good job in moulding the film in a desi style which would be closely relted to the rural lifestyles. On the whole this movie is a good entertainer and can be watched to kill time.
