Plot[edit]

Vishwa (Suriya) and Nilani (Preetha Vijayakumar) fall in love. Her mother does not approve, but she goes along with it. Complications arise when Vishwa exhibits "fashion" photos that he has taken of Nilani, which further upsets her mother. Then it comes to light that Surya's father Santhosh (Prakash Raj) had an affair, and things take a dramatic, tragic turn for the lovers. In the end, both families arrive at the airport to prevent Nilani from boarding the flight, but to their bad luck, they could not stop it. Nilani commits suicide by swallowing poison from her ring, and Vishwa, who gets hit by a wall, turns mentally challenged with the behavior of a child.

Critical reception[edit]

Indolink.com strongly gave a negative review stating that it's basically supporting actors beheading the lead actors and why do actor's son and daughter come to act in movies and criticized Suriya for his tedious face expressions. Suriya and Preetha vijayakumar could have just watched how Prakash Raj and Raadhika emote during emotional scenes instead of participating as hero and heroine.
