Director Saran, who introduced gangster movies in Kollywood through the movie Amarkalam is back again with his brand of movie, with a crisp and clear screenplay. He has succeeded in implementing a new concept in Kollywood.
Burma (Arya) is a small scale gun-seller. He kidnaps Veena (Adhisaya) for the sake of money. This incident leads to his encounter with Gurupadam (Napoleon). He joins as a henchman in Gurupadam's gang with some hidden intention.
The concealed motive is that Burma seeks revenge on Gurupadam who had murdered Burma's father when he was just a boy. Gurupadam's daughter Sangeetha (Keerath) falls in love with Burma. But Burma shuns her love realizing the risks involved in his job.
Burma carefully weaves his way into Gurupadam's gang and becomes the head honcho, after cutting away Gurupadam's ties with his other followers.
Finally Gurupadam becomes a lone man with no one to depend on but himself. At the right moment, Burma strikes his blow and becomes the leader of the gang.
Arya has done a good job and given a realistic touch to his character. Napoleon, the veteran actor attracts the audience by his acting skills. Keerath gives life to her character though there isn't much scope for performance.
Adhisaya has played the mirror image of Keerath's character. The director has rightly made use of Dhandapani, Ramji, Avinash and Ramesh Kanna in characters roles.
The location for each song sequence is superb. Kudos to art director Mohan Mahendran. Cinematofgrapher A. Venkatesh has captured the scenes with their true essences and emotions.
Saran, Bharadwaj and Vairamuthu combination will always be a super hit. This movie stands proof to that!
Saran has placed many twists in the course of the movie. Songs with less lyrics is a novelty in Tamil movies.
