Kokki Kumar (Dhanush) runs away from home after his dad murders his mom. Taking to begging on the streets, hes wrongly arrested by police when they roundup other tough guys in the area. Later he becomes a local don with help from others.
He comes across KrishnaVeni (Sneha) a prostitute who likes his nature. When attending the marriage of his gang members sister he marries her, Selvi (Sonia Agarwal).
What happens inbetween and after go to nearest movie hall.
The narration is different in this movie. But the ending is predictable. Too much of blood (red ink) flowing everywhere is little eye sore.
Dhanush with his voice from nose does not actually fit to be a don later on. Its acceptable when he is there as a school drop out but not few years later.
The story does not have any suspense and is not supposed to be a thriller, i believe.
The background score is pretty ordinary and does not lift spirits.
The script could have been little more tighter.
The songs seems to have lot of inspiration.
Click here to listen to the songs from raaga.
The song ‘Neruppu Vaayinil’ sung by KamalHassan looks to be slower version of ‘Stranded on the streets’ song from movie Nal Damayanthi, there is a resemblance to score from movie Kadhal Kondein and some trace of song ‘Anbe Sivam’ from movie Anbe Sivam.
The song ‘Pulpesum Poo pesum’ has inital resemblance to ‘Be a Rebel’ from movie ‘Rang De Basanti’ and heavy influence of Hip Hop song from the West.
Select the song ‘Going thru emotions: Prelude’, an advertisement from Citibank will be played (not sure whether the ad is played for users outside India). Listen to the background score then continue listening to the instrumental of the movie.
