Storyline

Chittan (Vikram) is born to a vagrant in a cemetery, who dies soon after. Raised with no contact to the outside world except with dead bodies, he grows up inept at social interaction. An acquaintance with a neighborhood drug dealer Gomathi (Sangitha) gets him a job as a handyman in a cannabis farm. Chittan ends up in jail where he makes his first real friendship - with a conman Shakti (Surya). When Chitthan and Sakthi try to step out of their lives of illicit activities, the local drug-lord interferes. Written by Anonymous

Outstanding, brilliant movie
14 April 2008 | by kamesh-4See all my reviews

Practically everyone of the main characters were brilliant. I liked the innocent and happy play of Suryan and Laila very much which contrasted nicely with the darker nature of the movie. Even Simran's dance was very good - no elaborate glamor, just plain and simple dance elements - I found it breathtaking. The characters were powerful yet realistic and believable. The police, the jailors, the rich, corrupt guys, the helplessness of poor people caught in these dynamics. Its such a relief to have a director who is original, strong, secure, no need not to copy from Hollywood. Bollywood is so bereft of ideas that no movie can survive without some item number, trying to cover up empty movies with technical whizbang - see the movie Race for example. Absolutely marvelous movie.
