Singer Karthik was initially roped in for the "Maruvaarthai" song and had even sung it. However, director Gautham Menon was not pleased with this version as he felt that Karthik's vocals did not fit the song. Gautham then had Sid Sriram sing the song, which subsequently made the final version. See more »

3.5 years since the date of its announcement, this movie finally got to see the light of day. Overcoming various struggles in making and release, the team had managed to sustain the expectation levels high throughout this phase. Whether the movie lives up to it is a big question mark.
Raghu (Dhanush) is an Engineering student at Chennai who falls in love at first sight with actress Lekha (Megha Akash) who comes to his college for a shooting. Surprisingly, Lekha also falls for him since the beginning and they get along. Lekha's guardian Guberan has other plans of making a fortune out of her acting career and is not ready to let her go. When Lekha decides to settle with Raghu, Guberan threatens Raghu's family and she has no other option but to give up her love interest. After 4 years, Lekha calls Raghu and informs him that she and Raghu's estranged brother Thiru (Sasikumar) are in trouble and she needs him to come to Mumbai. What happens at Mumbai and how Raghu manages to solve the crisis is the plot.
For 2.5 hrs, the audience get a claustrophobic attack of getting stuck in Dhanush's mind-voice.While Gautam Vasudev Menon's movies are known for the narration through the protagonist's mind-voice, this one has done it to death! While the first half was bearable because of the songs and the excitement of audience, the second half goes all over the place, lacking content and direction. The director has literally mocked the audience by showing how Dhanush escapes the gun shots because of his belt buckle and a key (?)! This is just one of the too many irking sequences in the movie. Sasikumar as a cop trying to deliver dialogues in English didn't gel too well. Darbuka Siva is the only saving face with his fresh rendering of music and BGM.
The hero keeps saying that he needs to shift from Auto Pilot mode to Beast mode to Death Wish mode. But the audience had been granted with Death Wish, by default!
