Storyline

Thamizh thug for hire in the city of Chennai who has no ties to anyone and will do any dirty work as long as the money as good. He meets a young girl named Shruthi and they fall in love. But there are two obstacles in the path of their romance : firstly, Shruthi detests Thamizh's violent ways and secondly, police sub-inspector Govindan is pursuing Shruthi obsessively with intent of making her his mistress. Meanwhile, Dubai-based crime lord Ali Bhai has arrived in Chennai for the purpose of silencing his chief rival gangster Narasimhan and also to meet Thamizh who is rising within the gang's ranks. However, during the meeting, Ali Bhai is arrested in a police raid conducted by Police Commissioner Mohammed Moideen Khan and his gang hatches a morally abhorrent plan in order to secure his release.

This one is sure to satisfy action thriller lovers. Plus points. Hero and Villain. Excellent casting. Chemistry between hero and heroine. Hair raising action. Racy script. Foot tapping songs. Excellent screenplay. Comedy except for the water joke.

I dnt find any negative points. Everything perfectly placed. One of the biggest grossers. An overall showcase of Vijay. Perfectly planned by the director though its a remake. was better than the original Kannada movie which felt annoying . Hate Kannada movies which has no star value. Music has greatly contributed to the film which adds flavour to the scenes. This movie will be an evergreen one for Vijay and to people even who hate him.
