is an Tamil thriller movie written and directed by Vikram Sugumaran who was a former assistant of Balu Mahendra and also a dialogue writer of the award winning Aadukalam . The film produced by G. V. Prakash Kumar features newcomer Kathir and Oviya in the lead roles.
The story is based on a respectable man in a village whose only mistake in life seems to be his marrying two women. As he marries the second woman, his first wife outcasts him. The first wife has a son, while the second has a son Parthi and a daughter Deepa. The old man lives as a family with the second wife and the two siblings. Ritu, a friend of Deepa takes shelter in the family, fearing ragging at college. Deepa is spoken for a relative, and she is married soon afterwards.
With this, Ritu sets off to her hometown, Kerala, which is when she and Parthi their love for one another. Seems like a lot of characters? Well, there's far more. The first wife's brother, her daughter marrying the same uncle, their 12-year old son, first wife's son, the many uncles that the young lads have, Deepa's husband's family, Ritu's family, over and above the rival Ponram.
It's good to know a lot of people and be in a big family, but not when all that goes around is hatred and crime in various forms, apart from uncensored flow of language.
