Pagalavan, Kesavan and Sekar are three friends, who lose their jobs in Chennai due to certain circumstances. Then they come across Das (Vijay Sethupathy), who runs a smart kidnap for ransom scam. Naturally his crime flourishes, and the three friends team up with him. Their path crosses with that of Arumai Prakasam, son of the state finance minister. Denied capital by his very strict father to start his business Arumai Prakasam stages his own kidnap, but ends up in the hands of Das and co. The comedy of errors takes a turn when the finance minister wants to catch the culprits, and gives the task to a very strict, encounter specialist cop, Brahmma. How Das and co try to stay ahead of the cop and how he nabs them, and what happens forms the rest of the story.Written by
Saw this movie today and I cannot remember when was the last time a movie made me laugh so much. The movie is a dark comedy with a brilliant script which meanders through the various realms of life that make of a typical Indian. The joblessness of youth, the dreams of a bright future, the authoritarian dad, the protective sentimental mom, the prodigal son, the loyal friends, the bullying rule-keepers, the ingenious cousins, the mythical sensual flame, fate's impeccable sense of humour, the Indian polity...it has all these stereotypes brilliantly inter-woven into a brilliant dark comedy. In many ways it reminds one of Guy Ritchie movies, and in many ways it reminds one of "Ek Chaalis ki last local" and again in many ways of "Jaane bhi do yaaron". In a way, this movie is an amalgamation of these and perhaps much more, but yet stays unerringly true to its own Chennaisque character. Very clever movie, and a salute to the director, scriptwriter and the actors (Vijay Sethupathy in particular) for pulling off a wonderful job and making a clever and entertaining movie. Keep 'em coming!
