Lyrics: Palani Bharathi
Thavasi (Vijaykanth) is the head of a village. He is a man with values and he provides justice to all the problems in the village. Jeyasudha is his wife. Bhoopathi (Vijaykanth) is their only son. Thavasi and Jeyasudha get their son engaged to Rajadurai's ('Nizalgal' Ravi) daughter Priyadarshini (Soundarya). Sankarapandi (Nasser) is Thavasi's brother-in-law. Sankarapandi and Thavasi are enemies due to some past incidents.
On a situation, Thavasi's verdict affects the poor family of Maragathammal (Vadivukarasi). To compensate for that and to provide justice to the affected family, Thavasi makes a decision that no parent would think of - he gives his son Bhoopathi to Maragathammal's family.
the meanwhile, Sankarapandi makes use of every opportunity to defeat Thavasi. Will Thavasi face and succeed Sankarapandi's games ? Will Bhoopathi ever get married to his fiancée Priyadarshini ? These questions are answered in the later part of the movie, after several twists !
movie's formula story (by Cinni Krishna) is not new. It has been told several times (M.G.R. has done several variations of this story in the past). We have also seen several versions & variations of this story in Nattamai, Chinna Kounder, Yejaman, etc. The main reason this movie is worth the watch is its simple narration. The screenplay flows smoothly. Director Udayasankar has done justice in the screenplay and direction area (except for the climax). The last one reel is filled with Masala and it is very cinematic. The dialogues are too much in some scenes - it appears as if they are trying to project Vijaykanth for political gains (in the absence of Rajnikanth, everybody else starts speaking 'politically correct' dialogues in their movies !).
aykanth fits the role of elderly Thavasi. He speaks little and acts more by expressions. On the other hand, Younger Vijaykanth in the Bhoopathi role acts little and fights and dances more ! Viajykanth flies during fight scenes with the help of some graphics ! Bhoopathi Vijaykanth does not appear young enough to dance with Soundarya and Prathiyusha !. Makeup for older Vijaykanth is not good. He looks almost like his son (his hair is gray only in few areas !). To differentiate the older Thavasi character, he could have used a totally gray toupee or a beard ! Jeyasudha has done her mother role well. Nasser has done his villian role with ease. In some it scenes, it looks like he is frustrated doing such villain roles ! (Tamil Movie World should give better roles to this talented actor !). Vadivelu brings in laughter in some scenes, if not all his scenes. That’s it – they have started mentioning about Osama Bin Laden and Bush in the Tamil Movie jokes ! Soon we can hear more references to Osama Bin Laden and Bush in Tamil Movie Songs (probably by Poet Vaali) !! Vadivikarasi has done her Maragathammal role well. Ilavarsu’s acting in the Kaarmegam role is natural - his accent and casual acting good. Ponnambalam has acted well in his Kottai Perumal role. Shriman, Thiagu and Delhi Ganesh have small roles and they provide the required acting. Kuyili, 'Mahanathi' Sankar, ‘Nizalgal’ Ravi, Prathiyusha, Ganthimathi are also in this movie ! (and there is nothing to mention about them !).
per’ Subbarayan has spent more attention in the fight sequences and some of them are interesting to watch.
ic is by Vidhyasaagar. The songs are not that great in this movie. 'Thanthana Thanthana thai maasam' (Yesudas, Sadhana Sargam) is OK to listen with the movie. Yesudas's voice is good to listen in this song. 'Desing Raja Thaan' (SPB, Sujatha) song is OK to listen with the movie. Vijaykanth's costumes (color) are not good in this song. 'Panjangam Paarkadhe' (Chitra Sivaraman, Sri Vardhini, Shankar Mahadevan) song is not good. Dancing is not the Vijaaykanth's forte - this song has some bad dance movements. 'Yelai Imayamalai' (Manikka Vinayagam) is a hero introduction + title song and it is not good. 'Ethanai Ethanai' (Shankar Mahadevan, Sujatha) song is OK to listen. 'Rasa Maha rasa…' is a small background song in the movie and it OK to listen.
