Veerappu is a Tamil language film. This was the second film that director Sundar C acted in the lead role. It is the Tamil remake of the blockbuster Malayalam movie Spadikam by Bhadran.

Plot[edit]

The story revolves around an ego clash between father and son. Puli (Sundar C) is a local rowdy and the son of a math teacher (Prakash Raj). Prakash Raj hates his son for being a rowdy and for not being proficient in mathematics.

As part of a flashback it is shown that young Puli was very good in physics but, being a math teacher, his father wanted him to excel in math which he was unable to do. As a result of repeated physical and mental abuse the boy takes the wrong route to grow up. In the meantime, rival gangs and police try to kill Puli, but he is accidentally saved by his half-sister, a daughter from an affair that Prakash Raj had.

Puli helps his half-sister in return for her unexpected help and vouches for her safety. The rival gangs kill her and put the blame on his father. How Puli brings the truth to light and unites with his family completes the rest of the movie.

Release[edit]

The satellite rights of the film were sold to Sun TV.

Box office[edit]

Veerappu was a commercial success grossing $2 million at the box office.[1]

The film is a remake of the blockbuster Malayalam movie Spadikam starring Mohanlal although parts of plot were lifted from another blockbuster Malayalam movie Narasimham (again starring Mohanlal) such as the half-sister and father being framed. (The Telugu movie Vajram starring Akkineni Nagarjuna is also based on Spadikam.)
