The girl is willing to marry him only if he could build a toilet at his home. Government announces a toilet scheme through which all the villagers will get toilet at their homes throughout India. President plans to visit a village and he chose protagonist's village. What happens when the President comes? is toilet built at their home? did they get married? answers protagonist's act of declaring himself as President.

Really really awesome !!!!
19 August 2016 | by jeevanantham-74125See all my reviews

A very healthy movie for the Tamil cinema lovers. We are expecting this type of movie in the future. The director who done a brilliant job especially in dialogues. A brilliant acting by each actors and actress. Even a small role who gives a best effort in their acting. Songs and the lyrics are very nice and the bgm is very support to this movie. Camera work and color tone are more than brilliant, editing and all the other technicians gives their 100% effort to lift this movie. Even though there is some slow scenes after interval block but the overall movie is really really awesome. its slaps not only the politicians, its for a every person. This is a good start for a movie which resemblance the life of the common man. Hats off!!
