Madhu (Amyra Dastur) is a young game developer and she often gets weird thoughts about her past life, doctors call it as a illusion caused by her job stress while she believes in reincarnation.

Did You Know?


KV Anand revealed that Ilayathalapathy Vijay was his first choice for Anegan as he wrote the script with the actor in his mind. But unfortunately, due to his prior commitments for AR Murugadoss' Kaththi, Vijay had turned down the film. The cinematographer-turned director even mentioned that it was Vijay who had put forward Dhanush's name for the film. So that's how Dhanush landed himself into Anegan. See more »

User Reviews

Wonderful movie that is a synopsis of what Tamil cinema means
27 March 2015 | by madd-53720See all my reviews

Danush's acting was brilliant. There it is, the most important thing said. There are other important things, such as the sense of fun, nice story, style, drama and entertainment value that makes up the best of commercial Tamil cinema. It is nice to see all of these come together.

The moviemaker has thought it fit to leave it up to the viewer to decide whether this was really a reincarnation movie, or only pretending to be that for most of the flick. But in the meantime, they were able to take us from historical gem- the history of tamils in Myanmar pre revolution to fun and cool Madras street lingo.

It did not feel like 2.5 hours, just grab a beer and relax with this very entertaining movie, no matter where you are from!
