Storyline

Krishna (Vikram), who has the mental maturity of a five-year-old, works in a chocolate factory in Ooty. His wife delivers a baby girl and dies. The girl, Nila (Sara) is brought up in his own way by Krishna. He showers all his love and care on her. But fate takes a quick turn. Nila's grandfather Rajendran (Sachin Khedkar), a powerful and influential man in society, enters the scene. Fearing that his grand daughter is not safe under a mentally-challenged dad, he takes away the girl from Krishna. His other daughter Shwetha (Amala Paul) takes care of the child. Krishna runs from pillar to post to get back his daughter. He gets acquainted with advocate Anuradha (Anushka) and Vinod (Santhanam), her junior. They listen to Krishna's past and promise that they would do their best to get back the custody of Nila. Bashyam (Nasser), a leading advocate, appears for Rajendran. The rest is legal battle and arguments in court and who wins at last. Written by Raju

Unconditional Love well portrayed.
17 July 2011 | by kgradhakrishnanSee all my reviews

Deiva Thirumagal - Must watch in a theater. The bond between 'Krishna' and 'Nila' and the way they have portrayed it will never be forgotten for a long time. We couldn't control our tears towards the end of the movie. Perfect blend of all elements - Music, Screenplay, Dialogues, Camera and acting.. Can never be made better.

Music by GV Prakash is fabulous. The theme music still plays back in my mind.

Vikram - Bow down to your acting, sir!

Baby Sarah as Nila - Great potential.. Very cute acting and her cuteness is the ultimate emotional factor in this movie!

Santhanam's comedy is good, but is not very hilarious.

Anushka did justice to her role.

Amala Paul - Artificial acting apparent.

The movie is absolutely fabulous and you will come out of the movie hall with a heavy heart and a smile on your face!!
