Storyline

Held in a cell, Sivaji reflects how he came to be under police scrutiny and his subsequent arrest for a variety of economic offenses. He had returned to Chennai from the U.S. to live with his parents and maternal uncle, and had hoped to invest money in colleges and hospitals so that people who are not privileged can benefit - much to the chagrin of a sophisticated goon, Adisheshan, who threatens him, and asks him not to tread on his territory.

Those who think that the movie is not that good, should watch it again because many like me have enjoyed the movie very much the second time!! rajini's acting,style and his sheer presence are the highlights of the movie....shankar has given his best too....shreya looks sexy all the way....vivek's role as a sidekick goes well as well....all the people behind the camera deserve a standing applause as well....lot of money has gone into this movie-nearly 80 crores INR - solely dependent on Superstar's fame...and the way people have received this movie,it might bring in lot of profit to the producers/distributors and whomever concerned with the movie....a must watch for every rajini fan and for others,watch it sans expectations....100% enjoyment ride
