Where did you watch this movie?

Fast-paced and fiery, this action-oriented crime thriller delves into the dangers in the life of Bala, the favourite hitman of gangster Pasupathi (Dev). When Bala is not zooming around in jeeps with a wild-looking gang, parading down lanes with the same gang faithfully following a step behind him, or knocking down one person or another, he's successfully wooing Arthi, the girl he has fallen for at first sight. Arthi is the daughter of Jeyamani, a rival gangster. Ailing don Paranthaman (Thilakan), mentor of the two rivals, seeing his protégés at each other's throats, brings a compromise by suggesting that Arthi be married to Pasupathi's wayward son. How will both the mafia kingpins react when they come to know that Bala and Arthi are in love?

Trivia:
Interestingly, while some scenes were shot on a boat about fifteen kilometres from the harbour, in Chennai. However, for the safety of the lead actors, a lavish set was erected at the Vauhini Studios, Chennai, where Shaam and Meera Jasmine danced to the beat of a song.

Vidya Balan, the original choice for lead actress, was replaced by Meera Jasmine in this movie.

This movie is directed by debutant Deepak who had gained vital experience when he assisted editors Lenin-Vijayan, and director A.R. Gandhikrishna.

One of the highlights was immensely popular soundtrack composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja that comprised of five tracks
