It is better to get one thing clarified in the beginning of this review itself. Don't try to find the meaning for the title of the movie at any stage of this 3 hours long film! Madurai Veeran is the remake of Teja's Telugu hit Nuvve Nennu. The story revolves around the campus and a don's house with gory events. The story is not new to any of the southern language film goers. It again follows the beaten track.
Ramesh is the son of a rich businessman in Madurai. Heroine Saloni is the daughter of a milk supplier-cum-local rowdy Lal. Both study together in a college.
Initially Saloni hates Ramesh without any particular reason. Later she realises that she is having a feeling of possessiveness towards the hero. Finally, it results in a deep love for him. But as usual, the parents of both sides oppose their love strongly. After seeing that they are adamant in their love, the parents use a technique to separate them. They promise to get them married on a condition that they should not meet each other for the next one year. But on the other hand, their parents try their level best to see that they get married secretly. Love doesn't follow any rules and it never tolerates betrayal. Ramesh tries to elope with Saloni. But he is forcibly taken to Mumbai and kept under house arrest by his father. On the other side, Lal arranges for Saloni's wedding with someone. On the wedding night, Saloni elopes from her house and rushes to Mumbai. But before she reaches there, Ramesh has already left for Chennai to visit her. The rest of the movie deals with the re-union of the lovers against all odds with the help of the student force.
