Storyline

Surya (Surya Sivakumar) is away at war as his father, Krisnan (also Surya) dies of lung cancer. As Surya sits on a plane in combat gear heading into battle, he reminisces about his father's influence in his life. The film opens with the father Krishnan's romance with Malini (Simram), which in turn is contrasted with the son's aggressive courting of an engineering student Meghana (Sameera Reddy) from a train ride in Tamil Nadu to her graduate studies in Berkeley. The romance is swiftly followed by an extended period of professional and personal uncertainty, in which the son turns back to father figures to help him get back on his feet and seek out his true calling. Well made, though overlong film, reportedly autobiographical about the director's own relationship with his father. Written by Joyojeet Pal

Trivia

After the Visa Interview scene, Surya is seen playing a tune on the guitar. His sister, Shreya, asks him from which film the song he is playing is from, to which Surya responds that it was his own composition, and that it would take a while for tunes like that to feature in cinema. The tune which he plays is "Manjal Veyil" from Vettaiyadu Vilayadu, also directed by Gautham Menon, which released in 2006. See more »
