Storyline

Siva (Madhavan) comes to Madras from a small Tamil Nadu town to study. He instantly falls in love with elusive stranger Priya (Meera Jasmine) who resists his charms quite persistently. Madhavan later discovers that romancing Priya can be a dangerous hobby. Good performances - especially by Raghuvaran as the brother-in-law who can't see eye to eye with Siva and by Vivek as the (unnecessary) comic relief in the film. Written by Joyojeet Pal

trendsetter of early 2000s. Made R Madhavan's career
28 February 2019 | by stylegamerSee all my reviews

A different run of the mill love story. I first watched this movie in the fall of 2002 and was impressed by the trendsetter action scenes and storylines. The movie cast in stone the career of madhavan and director Lingusamy and set the the tone of the rest of the movies which followed after.

Amazing that a director like lingusamy who previous directional venture was that of a village based story could come up with a technical finesse that is unparalleled at the time.
