Where did you watch this movie?

This multi-layered drama compares the lives of two students who make very different choices in life, and the ultimate consequences of their actions. It follows Bergmans (Arjun), a brilliant but unruly student, is thrown out of his seminary for committing the sin of the flesh after being caught red-handed by fellow student Sam Fernando (Arvind Swami). Blaming the good-hearted Sam for his ouster, Bergmans vows revenge and challenges to prove that evil does reign supreme in this world. As they grow up, their choices in life take them along diametrically opposing paths, spiralling them into an ultimate conflict between good and evil. Who will be the victor?

Trivia:
As the film portrays Christianity, Rajiv Menon explored the way artistes capture biblical themes. For this he and Ratnam took inspiration from Simon Schama's documentary called Power of Art on Caravaggio.

To get the perfect prescription for this movie, Jeyamohan wrote a 200-page novel, which was later transformed by Mani Ratnam into a screenplay
