Rearing roosters, maintaining them and using them for fights are a way of life and a matter of honor and lifeline to many people. In such a tenement, Pettaikaaran (Jayabalan) leads a very respectable life with his key aides Durai (Kishore) and Karuppu (Dhanush) along with others. His main adversary in hen fights is Rathinam, the police inspector. Pettaikaarar is known to have an impeccable track record of successes when it comes to fowl fights especially with Rathinam's. In an unexpected situation, Pettaikaaran challenges Rathinam to a fowl contest which witnesses Karuppu violating his mentor Pettaikaarar's word but emerging successfully with enviable proceeds. This results in the swelling of his status among his folks which plants the seeds of animosity in the minds of Pettaikaaran. What follows is an interesting and unexpected path with twists and turns highlighting on the way the multiple layers of human emotions with sense playing truant.Written by
In the league of Devar Magan, Paruthiveeran yet another movie that portrays the life of people as it is in the reality. Aadukalam is a movie based on the life of rooster-fighters, their passion, love, emotions and everything.
After success of Polladhavan, Dhanush and Vetrimaaran have tagged again for this classical venture and have succeeded too, making it both commercial and critically acclaimed movie.
Plot: Pettaikaran and Rathnasamy are the rivals in the rooster fight. Karuppu, the jockey of Pettaikaran team, goes to win the best rooster award and a ransom price money in a tournament despite Pettaikaran denial to compete with his rooster. Rest of the movie depicts how situations go bad as people change after Karuppu gaining popularity.
Yet another brilliant acting from the lead, Dhanush and excellent acting from the support casts Jayabalan, Kishore, and Narien. Tapsee who does the love interest of Dhanush, has done a recent job as well.
Music is done by G.V Prakash Kumar has delivered exactly what it is supposed to.
Full credits to Vetrimaaran for this excellent direction and superlative screenplay.
No wonder that this movie has bagged six National awards including best actor, best director and best screenplay.
For those who are looking for an honest and a quality movie, I would highly recommend this.
