Set in Madurai, the film revolves around the alcoholic Dharma Durai (Vijay Sethupathi), who often ruins his brother’s businesses. His mother Pandiyamma (Radikaa) is his only support. One day Durai runs away with his brother’s money and ends up at a medical college in search of his love Stella (Srushti Dange) and his close friend Subashini (Tamannaah) is his only support. The rest of the story is about Durai and his past in flashback mode.
Vijay Sethupathi comes up with a brilliant performance, especially as an alcoholic addict. He steals the show with his brilliance.
Radikaa as Sethupathi’s mother delivers a strong and suave performance.
Among the ladies, it is Aishwarya Rajesh who stands out with her realistic skills.
Yuvanshankar Raja’s music is well in sync with the rural backdrop and the music is well complimented by Sukumar’s cinematography.
Director Seenu Ramasamy has started off with a sensitive drama but looses track somewhere in the middle.
Tamannaah doesn’t seem to fit the bill however, she is far more expressive than her regular roles.
