Major Nagarajan mythological with Ganesan unusually starring as a minor local deity, Veerabaghu, apprenticed to the more popular male deity Muruga (Sivakumar). Muruga is born to earth specifically to eliminate the evil Soorasura (Ashokan), and the film includes spectacular footage of the war between the two kings Athigaman and Malayaman, halted by Avvaiyyar’s (Sundarambal) pacificist speech. The dialogue was noted for its lofty classical Tamil idiom. Jayalalitha and Vijaya played Muruga’s consorts. The film is also known for being 80s star Sridevi’s debut, aged 5, in the role of the child Muruga.
