The plot revolves round the life of Karthik (Dhanush) a struggling freelance photographer in Chennai who does portfolios, weddings and other functions. Karthik has a keen interest in wild life photography and friends call him a genius, though he is bit of a loner. His role model is Madhesh Krishnaswamy (Ravi Prakash), a world renowned wildlife photographer and his dream is to be an assistant to this arrogant man. Karthik hangs out with his friends and is extremely close to Sundar (Sundar) who introduces his girlfriend Yamini (Richa) to the gang. Initially Karthik and Yamini can't stand each other but there lies the twist, when opposites attract. Written by Captain

The beginning of a New era of Tamil cinema !
1 December 2011 | by jtsh-plSee all my reviews

Selvaraghavan has created magic once again ! ; First Aayirathil Oruvan and now Mayakkam Enna ! Selvaraghavn deserves a huge applause ! The direction and screenplay are just awesome ! he is definitely the next generation Tamil director ! Performances by Dhanush and Richa are mind-blowing !Richa doesn't look like débutante at all ! The first half was a bit slow, but the second half was just amazing and classy! The songs are really refreshing especially Voda Voda and Kaadhal en Kaadhal, Pirai Thedum was really Melodious and Background Score by G.V.Prakash was very good- G.V.P has definitely a very bright future ahead The movie is completely different from other Tamil movies ! A new genre has to be created for the movie to fit in , It doesn't have useless and crappy masala stuffs which can be seen in most of Tamil movies like that of Vijay ! These kinds of Movies should be encouraged from now on. Great Job and hats-off to Selva and Dhanush !
