Storyline

Four immigrants (Pandi, Murugan, Afsal and Kumar) are detained by the local state police, tortured and forced to admit to a crime they have no knowledge of. When all hope seems to be lost, a policeman from their hometown speaks on their behalf at the court hearing, setting them free. The policeman asks for a return favor and the boys oblige, oblivious to the consequences that await them. As they unwittingly bear witness to a political treason, the system seeks to silence them at any cost. But Pandi is determined to be heard. Written by anonymous

Impactful Masterpiece!
10 February 2016 | by naveensankaran18See all my reviews

I was eagerly waiting for this movie for ages and it has finally arrived after getting several laurels around the world. I won't reveal the story much but it is all about the scapegoat technique handled by the cops. Right from the start, the screenplay was very gripping and there was no clue about what is about to come next.

The performance of the whole cast is very surprising as everyone acted to their core and brought the very best in them. Although the movie is very intense, there are some humor elements through some body languages and silly comments. It may take some sweat off our head but another scene will be right behind to take you to the edge of the seat.

I haven't watched such an intense movie with so much quality content in it, delivered in a very grippy manner.

Easily, this is the most impactful movie of this decade!

I sincerely thank Vetrimaran for making such a masterpiece!!

Cast-performance-BGM-screenplay-content = Visaranai.
