Lingusamy's Paiya is yet another hero oriented mass masala with a thin romantic coating. The only plus point of the movie is song sequences, thanks to the peppy numbers of composer Yuvan! There is no need for searching a story in this kind of films. The film is just filled with as usual hero heroine meeting, love at first sight, meaningless duets and handful fights etc...
Shiva (Karthi) is a jobless young man. He is in lookout for a job and comes to Bangalore for an interview with his close friends where he sees Charu (Tamanna). As usual he falls in love and dreams a lot. To hype his adrenaline, Charu nears him and requests for a ride to Mumbai.
On the way to Mumbai, Charu explains why she came to Bangalore and her real problems. At that time a gang chase them and Shiva clears them successfully. But another gang also chase them.. all are from Mumbai. But this time they are not chasing Charu. Their target is Shiva. After fighting with them, Shiva explains his Mumbai connections and the flashback.
Now both the Andhra as well as Mumbai gangs chase them. Shiva handles some 50 plus goons single handedly. So there is no need for explaining the remaining part... i.e., how they escapes from the chase and joins in the love track!
