Evocative and provocative, this multi-layered relationship drama revolves round the life of Karthik (Dhanush) a struggling freelance photographer in Chennai who does portfolios, weddings and other functions. Karthik has a keen interest in wild life photography and friends call him a genius, though he is bit of a loner.
His role model is Madhesh Krishnaswamy (Ravi Prakash), a world renowned wildlife photographer and his dream is to be an assistant to this arrogant man. Karthik hangs out with his friends and is extremely close to Sundar (Sundar) who introduces his girlfriend Yamini (Richa) to the gang. Initially Karthik and Yamini can't stand each other but there lies the twist, when opposites attract.
What will happen between Karthik and Yamini? How will Karthik's career as a photographer evolve?
Television actress Deepa Venkat dubbed the voice of the female lead in the movie.
Initially, Yuvan Shankar Raja replaced G. V. Prakash Kumar as music composer in the film, with the latter reporting it was due to "money and time issues". However, in a sensational turn, G. V. Prakash Kumar was assigned again as composer, after Yuvan Shankar Raja moved out of the project as he was busy with other commitments and could not give priority to Selvaraghavan, who was in rush to complete the film and move on to his next project, 'Vishwaroopam'.
The story of this film is based on the book 'A Beautiful Mind', that was written by a German-born American journalist Sylvia Nasar, which also inspired and resembled the movie, 'A Beautiful Mind' (2001).
