We aren't able to understand the taste and liking of the superstar Rajinikanth. He is the person responsible for the remake of Jogi as Parattai... for his son in-law. But the film has pulled Dhanush down into the dumps again.
The director of the film Suresh Krish has again proved his inability in catching the attention of the viewers. The director has probably tried to be sincere and faithful to the original script, but nevertheless one is unable to digest the looks and action orient scenes of Dhanush. The mother-son sentiment on which the film is based becomes boring and irritating after a point especially when they start dancing at regular intervals.
Azhagu Sundaram (Dhanush) is a young village guy who is the only son of his parents. His mother (Archana) dotes on him. After the demise of his father Livington, Azhagu moves to Chennai in search of a job. A small clash with the villain leads to Azhagu Sundaram becoming a don in the name of Parrattai and is forced to wield the sword. From an innocent youth from a rural area, he goes on to become a gangster. On the other hand, his mother lands up in Chennai in search of her son without even knowing his address or whereabouts. Archana bumps into Meera Jasmine, a journalism student who takes pity on the old lady, takes her home and promises to help her in finding her son.
