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

Visual story telling at its best, makes the viewers feel first party witness to the going's on in the movie
14 March 2016 | by visshpoisonSee all my reviews

Beautiful portrayal of emotions, helplessness of innocents corrupt system. Credit to the casting team, no character seemed out of sync throughout the cinema time. No wonder it won amnesty International Italia award. Makes one see how human rights are being violated. How Innocents are victimized by the corrupt state agencies, which are meant to protect them.

This movie is a director's special. Danush not only as an actor has good taste in cinema, he's proved himself as a successful producer. Initially my choice of movies were based on the actors, then actors and directors and movies like these makes one choose based on who is producing that movie, such is the choice of Danush's movies.
