Director Susindran was pretty overconfident that Naan Mahan Alla would be an exceptional flick focalizing on rapid rise of crime rates in Chennai. But, what should have been a crime thriller turns into sluggish drama with predictable narration. Hero’s act of seeking vengeances and settling scores with baddies has been the most common stories in Kollywood. In all likelihood, Naan Mahan Alla carries such hackneyed plot and offers nothing special to the audiences.
The film revolves around Jeeva (Karthi), a freewheeling guy with no worries in life. His family members and friends keep him invigorated over the times. Jeeva comes across the gorgeous Priya (Kajal Aggarwal) and falls in love at first sight and indeed impresses her. When everything is set to go on paths of happiness, Jeeva’s life is turned upside down when his father (Jayaprakash) is stabbed to death by group of strangers. What follows next is Jeeva’s mission of trapping the goons, who were responsible not alone for his father’s death, but are serial killers.
