Where did you watch this movie?

The film's story is about a carefree young atheist, Baba, who is a reincarnation of a saint from the Himalayas. After several twists and problems caused by corrupt local politicians, Baba is taken to Mahavatar Babaji, whom Baba was a follower of in his last life. Baba gets tested by the deity and is given seven chances of wishes; the test is that if he uses any one of the wishes for his own personal desires, he would have to take many more births for him to get rid of the Karma.

Trivia:
Soundarya Rajinikanth was a title animation designer for the film.

The movie was highly anticipated as it was Rajini's first shot at writing a story and screenplay. Thousands of his fans were deeply touched and moved by a scene in which he works as a load man.

A intra-state political party in Tamil Nadu made severe anti propaganda against the movie for having too many smoking and drinking scenes.

Rajinikanth voiced Mahavatar Babaji in the film.
