Where did you watch this movie?

This radical social drama daringly probes closely-held concepts about spirituality, enlightenment, faith in enlightened masters, truth and deception through the twists and turns in the family of Sathyamoorthy, a wealthy diamond businessman. While he has the faith in spiritual masters, his younger brother, Raja is a cynical sceptic, believing most of them to be fake. After some sparks of animosity, Raja falls in love with Hema, and the lovers get married with the blessings of their respective families. During their honeymoon, Raja and his entourage come upon a secretive group of people practising human sacrifices. Raja delves deeper into the origin of these inhumane and cruel practices, only to identify the source to be a man masquerading in society as an enlightened saint and a spiritual master. How will Raja succeed in exposing the true and demonic face of this fake saint?
