Sangathamizhan (2019) - full transcript

Once a young man named Tamil learns that a businessman is planning to build a factory in his village, he tries to stop the plan for fear of pollution.

'Theni District'

'Due to air pollution'

Maharashtra Govt has banned
the operations of Sanjay Industries

'The case filed by the public against
this firm operating in Maruthamangalam...'

...has already met with 2 adjournments

With regard to this, the opposition has
not submitted any supporting documents

- Objection, Your Honor
- Objection overruled

It is the court's duty to allay
the fears of the general public

This is my humble request

Begin your argument, Mr Shanmugam

Ignorance of the general public
about Sanjay Copper Industries the reason for this fear

In the preparation of copper
we are introducing many reforms

We need extension of time to submit
supporting documents regarding this

'That's all, Your Honor'

After hearing the arguments
of both the sides

' much as industrial growth
is important to the welfare of society'

...we must bear in mind
people's security is more important

'Therefore Sanjay Industries'

...has to submit its justification in court

Until then this court notifies
interim injunction will continue

'Glad about stay continuing'

No big deal but make sure
you come for the next hearing, okay?

- I'll take care, you carry on
- Take photocopies


Come here

- Yes, comrade
- Are you all jobless?

Is your job just roaming around
court and filing cases?

If you can carry on atrocities
hailing from another town...

...can't we fight for our own land?

Stop it right here
Only then you're on safe ground

Otherwise I'll chop you to pieces

Comrade, if you hack us
one more will emerge!

- If even he's killed, same story
- How many of us will you kill?

Seeds have already been sown
They will sprout and spring up

Anyone who opposed us
has never lived you know

Hey! Not lived, huh?

In this world, someone or the other
will be born to oppose someone

You don't decide who lives

Leave that to God!

Do what you can

Come on, boys

- Relax, comrade
- Get going...go

Sir, we are in court
We will see them later

'Why get into a fight
with him unnecessarily?'


'Hey, trust me, I'm telling you-'

- Hello, bro
- 'Flirting, huh?'

'Nothing of that sort, bro'

- 'Hey...!'
- Vanakkam, bro

'Air is filled with jasmine scent, eh?'

Rainbow colors, huh?

Saro, you had zero demand in the market

But now you seem to be most wanted!

You are the one
who has forgotten me!

Shucks! I don't eat
old food nowadays

[whistles in appreciation]

- Hey...!
- Bro

- Who is this new chick?
- 'Don't know, bro'

Sir, I have an exam tomorrow morning

I came here only to take my exam

They brought me here even though
I tried my best to explain, sir

You brought a student here?
Are you brainless or what?

Bro, we didn't know-

- What is your name?
- Bhagyalakshmi, sir


I was just teasing these fellows

You don't worry

Wait upstairs for a while
You can leave early, okay?

- Hey! Take her upstairs
- 'Okay, bro'

Trust me and go up
Don't cry, dear

'Thanks, sir'

Chase these hookers away

Bro, what about that girl upstairs?

- What was her name?
- Bhagyalakshmi

Means the blessed one, eh?

Let me run up and check
how fortunate she is!


'Without realizing, I gave it to
the wrong hands and I'm in a mess now'


Raghu, please return all the costumes

I rented it 3 days ago

These costumes are needed for
shooting tomorrow, please give them

You go now, our boys will
return them tomorrow in the shop

2 chaps are standing out here
and torturing me for these uniforms

Please return them

- Check them out
- Yes, bro

Who are you?

'What do you want?'

You're asking me so decently

But he knocked my adam's apple out

You know how painful that can be!

How painful?

Hey, come here

I tapped gently

- But he used force, sir
- What's so important about the shoot?

Demanding our costumes
in the middle of the night

Actually, sir-

The day a policeman
dons his khaki uniform

...from that day onwards
he's bound by fairplay and justice

Whoever the criminal may be
he should beat him to a pulp

Tear his shirt to tatters
and drag him to court

One who fights against
bribe and corruption

Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
be a rowdy to tackle a rowdy

But at the same time
one who is common man's friend

He is a true police officer!

- Am I right?
- Yes, sir


That's hero Vikram's dialog
as Commissioner in 'Saamy'

My dialog is your 'yes, sir'

Hoping one day we'll wear
this uniform and speak these words

...we say 'yes, sir' and salute today

Will your sins be forgiven if you
grab even that 'yes, sir' from us?

You intend returning our costume?

I've been saying I can't return
from the beginning

Okay, forget it

- Will Thangam dress store be open?
- Opens at 5:30 a.m

Will you ask them for 2 uniforms?

Forgive us if we troubled you
But this is an important request

Will you take off that uniform
when you drink?

It holds a special respect
Okay? Bye then

- Sir, shall we leave?
- Yes, sir

You hold your breath well

- You should've sung that SPB song
- I wasn't in films then

What is it, dear?

Why are you so petrified
as if I'm here to rape you, huh?

- It's wrong, sir
- All I want to do is romance with you

- Come on...come on
- I'm not that kind of a girl, sir

Which girl will accept
'I am that kind of a girl'?

'You can use me as you like!'

Stop kidding, darling

- Please don't, sir
- Stop your drama!

Lie down now

I beg you, sir

- Please, sir
- Please 'please' me!

Who is this bear walking into my den?

I'll be back, dear

Hi, glad to meet you


Means I'll punch you till you pass out!

All my boys are downstairs

How did you come up?

Go ask your boys down there

Why ask the one up here?

1 minute, sir

Thank you so much, sir

You shouldn't be silent like this
hoping a savior will come to your aid

Are you a police officer?

Whatever costume he wears,
he will live that character

I'm trying to become a comedian
He's trying for a hero's role in films

Perfect hero, right?

Sports a 6 pack too!

- Pccht! Forget that
- Okay

As far as I'm concerned
you are a hero

One day you'll become a star!

Okay, please bless me

Sir, why are you falling at my feet?

- You meant it, right?
- Yes

From the bottom of your heart?

You said it with love?
Then you are God, bless me

- Will I become a hero?
- Sure

If you say so
that's enough

Bro, won't her words come true?


You'll be a hero of the masses

Sing the hero introduction song

He is awesome

Sir, simply superb

Sir, repeat that shake

"Oh my God! Oh my God!!
Sparks will fly in total Tamil Nad"

Gawd! He calls himself a hero!!

Sir, please don't sleep
Then Tamil cinema will go into slumber

Come what may
you are the hero

I'm the comedian by your side

What happened?
Hero sir!

Pack up!

'He who has 5 hands and face of an elephant
whose tusk is like the crescent effulgent'

'Son of Nandi, flower of wisdom,
He's Ganesha, I cherish and worship Him'


You are off to play cards
in our street corner, right?

Creating such a scene as if
you're working in a big firm?

Carry on, gambler

- Has he left?
- Yes

Shall we begin?

'Am I not one amongst the people?
Why can I not rule?'

'You are one amongst the people, but-'

- Leaving?
- Are you back?

You call this a profession!

[excerpts from 'Nadodi Mannan']

'But the atrocious taxes you impose
and the flogging whips you bulldoze'

'...have determined, as our king
you know to live but not to rule!'

Hey! Appa has come

What's happening?

If I tell you to study
do you ever listen to me?

What to do?
Like father like children!

- What is he doing?
- Practicing for 'Tik Tok' video

Is there money in it?

Hey! Do you call this a job?

Not only are you jobless
you're a bad influence on my kids

'Go out and look around'

Sons usually give their salary to
their parents on the 1st of every month

'Aren't you ashamed to stand
as an extra actor for a few 100 bucks?'

- What's in the bag?
- 'Murukku'

- Give me
- 'Look at his face!'

He'll become a hero it seems!

'Thinks he's Kamal Haasan'


'What am I saying and
what are you doing?'

Instead of munching this,
you can eat some crap!

Anger at the tip of your nose!

Akka, give me a 'dosa'

You still want a 'dosa' after the way
my husband insulted you?

Akka, that 'murukku' is stale

He was so concerned for my health
and you're blaming him

So now I am the culprit, huh?

My husband is working like a dog
doing 2 shifts instead of 1

Your father happily strolls
to the street corner to gamble

You are gallivanting
for a chance in cinema

Even after looking at him is it no one is
responsible in this house?

At least 1 person should
be diligent in our family?

If we are all spendthrifts,
won't we be penniless?

What are you saying?
How can we afford 'dosa' then?

You have a way with words
Make your own 'dosa'

Don't ruin the pan
trying to make a crisp 'dosa'

'Help yourself to ghee if you want'


'You're a great inspiration
to everyone, sir'

Worked for your boss, you climbed up
the ladder and now on par with him

'Today you want his daughter as bride'

Learn everything
but not this kind of stuff, huh?

'Good morning, sir'

'Long time!'

Thanks for your appointment, sir

What can my boss do for you?

My wife wants my son to get married

I spoke to him too

But he told me he has
already decided on the bride

Idiot! What if he brings some fool
and introduces her as his wife?

Then what will happen to our status, sir?

But do you know whose photo he showed?

Your daughter's photo, sir

That's why I came to
discuss this alliance


Hey Rohit!

What is this, sir?

Dad, ask them to let go of me


A businessman bred a dog as his pet

He took care of this pet
better than himself

The dog followed him wherever
he went like his faithful shadow

Almost as a family member

One day when he decided to
find a groom for his daughter

...that dog came up to him and asked

'You are looking for
a son-in-law all over the town'

'Why didn't you think of me?'

All said and done
it's just a dog, right?

Do I spare that dog's life?

Or should I kill it?

Don't resort to murder, sir
Please let go of my son

'Set a thief to catch a thief'
is an oft repeated adage

- Do you know that?
- Of course, sir

Then I don't have to waste
my breath trying to explain

Get lost!

Where did I stop?

'If it pertains to my business'

...I will stoop down to any level

If it has got to do with my status

...I'll go the whole 9 yards!

I've signed on the dotted line, sir

Love you


Sorry, sir

Is it okay I'm here
in my shooting costume?

- I know the costumer, not to worry
- Not that, sir

- I'm there, right?
- True, right?

Sir, this looks like the haunt
of the rich and famous

In one go, can we spend
our hard earned money?

If the rich frequent the pub
every week, it is their hobby

We go when we feel like
to make ourselves happy

Then let us go in, sir

Didn't you want to visit a pub?

Then why this change of mind?

- Are you playing a double game?
- No, sir

You first
I'll follow, sir

What is this, sir?

It is jam packed like
a temple on new moon day

New look, sir?
Coolers and all

Gives a rich look, sir

- How is it?
- So you've come well-prepared

Yes, sir

Excuse me


[whistling loudly]

You called out decently
and it wasn't heard

My whistle did it!

Hi sir, what would you like to have?

- What is your name?
- Excuse me, sir

What's your name?
Which area?

Shantha kumar from Vannarapettai

Aren't you a local chap?
I'm also a local chap, eh?

Then why this English between us?

- How should you speak to me?
- Welcome, anna

Vanakkam, anna
Please sit, bro

- What is your order?
- That's the way to ask!

Hello sir, what would you like to have?

- Bring two 90
- Don't have 90, sir

Only 60 and 30

You are being impudent
Do you get it?

I follow the rules here, sir

You're running a booze shop
and what rules are you talking about?

- Get lost!


Don't stipulate conditions to customer

Customer is king!

- Understand, go
- Okay, sir

- Forget it!
- Apologize to him

Sorry, sir


Drink, sir

- Sir...?
- Hahn

It's jam packed here and still
one chap is ogling at another chick

- Who, sir?
- Turn this side

'That's the way, lovely!'

- Tell me, brother
- Aren't you ashamed of yourself?

Why should I be ashamed?

If you are dancing with your wife

And some chap ogles like this,
how furious you'll be?

Why should I lose my cool?

That lady who is dancing

She's my wife!

'He's connecting person to person!'

Why aren't you dancing with her?

I don't know to dance

She dances really well
only with him

I'm just the audience, that's all

Why take it to heart?
It's no big deal, brother

Sir, am I making sense
or you think he's right?

Come what may, you are
people's favorite and always right

Why do you even doubt this?

- Tell me, sir
- Get my bill

It's on the house, sir
Today is madam's birthday

- She's paying for everyone
- Who is your madam?


Madam...there she is

Dai, bring the bill
for our booze, go

Who is the baby here?


Announce a break for 5 minutes, sir

You must be tired after drinking
Take rest for 5 minutes

Who is the birthday girl here?

You, huh?
Happy birthday


If it's your birthday
treat your friends

Why buy drinks for strangers like us?

- It's my treat
- Balls!

- Want me to repeat it?
- What?

Treat your friends or
your employees on your birthday

Or help out people
in your neighborhood

It will be a blessing
to your entire lineage

Only the rich who can afford come here

What do you gain
by giving him freebies?

- Listen here-
- Forgive me if I said something wrong

I won't apologize like that
because I'm not wrong

Sir, why are you talking to her?

- Go on, find your way out
- 'When did I speak to her?'

Hey! Whom are you
trying to knock down?


A man shouldn't look good!

'She would've hit on me
He ruined even that!'

- Sir, you keep going
- Leave me alone, sir

That's it, what I say goes


- Dai! Continue
- Who is this fellow?

- What, sir?
- What more do you want to do?

- Did I do something wrong, sir?
- When have you ever been wrong?

You measure every word you speak

You didn't even give the bill

You created a scene
to imprint your face in her mind

- Is that so?
- Of course

Won't that girl ask her friends?

Who is he? What does he do?
Where is he from?

Won't they also fill up the blanks?

Good lord!

You know it all
No one can fool you, sir

Don't know how I can match
your acting skill, sir?

Somehow please save me, sir

Come, sir
Let's go

He washed all the dirty linen happily
Why is he wringing me to drip-dry?

Happy birthday, my darling

Thanks, dad

I thought you would
call me at 12:01

I thought you will be busy
So didn't want to disturb you

- Coffee
- Okay

I'll call you back

'Maruthamangalam - Theni District'

- Won't you measure 1 kg correctly, bro?
- Go, lady

Your measuring sucks

If he says it is over
wait and watch!

- Measure properly
- Get lost!

Groceries are all over
Clear off, everyone

You gave hardly 10 people
How can it be over?

How will I answer the people
of the neighboring town?

Are people of this town mad
to tolerate this atrocity?

What are you doing with
the groceries you get?

I didn't get any stock
Do what you want

- We shouldn't spare him
- Take your hands off!

[overlap of angry voices]

Look here

No use talking to him

We will solve this
at the right place

Come along
Follow me

Collector has arrived
Get up, all of you

- Let's tell him our problem
- Yes, tell him everything

- Sir
- Good afternoon, sir


- What is this?
- They are waiting from morning

They are refusing to leave, sir

Why are all of you protesting
in front of the police station?

Sir, we have no access
to benefits granted by the Govt

Hardly 10 people are given groceries
in the Govt ration shop, sir

He claims Govt allocation was so low

We have no rice or lentils
to feed our children

Even our roads are not well lit
when we walk home at night

- Even that power supply is cut
- Yes, sir

We have no school facilities
for our children to study

Sir, our hospital is just
a namesake establishment

There aren't any doctors
nor any medical supplies, sir

Do you know how we suffer
to get drinking water, sir?

If we go to the neighboring town
to get water we are driven away

Should we suffer like this?

We are depending
on you to save us, sir

My hands are tied

You returned your voter IDs
and declined the need for elections

What arrogance!

Is it his words?

He's repeating like a parrot
what he has been taught

Is this how we get punished
for repealing elections?

What is the solution, sir?

Your wants will be fulfilled
only if you say 'yes' to elections

Withdraw your election repeal

Will we be alive
till we vote, sir?

It is all our wretched fate

'We won't gain anything
appealing to them'

- Let's go
- Calls himself a collector

- Clear out now
- It's a no win situation

What are the people saying?

Ignore their pleas

I repeated verbatim
whatever you asked me to

I don't know how long this will last

It is not your place to comment

They have started lamenting only now

It will change

Change is imminent

'Praise be to Kittappa'

'Avatar of Spirituality'

'Come stressed out
Go happy without a doubt'

'Praise be to Kittappa'

'Kittappa Astrology Center'

'Glory to seer Kittappa'

Praise be to the Goddess of

Thank you very much, swami

- He got his due
- Here, sir

I don't take money

Thank you

I don't accept cash
Please hand it over to her

- I thought as much
- You charge Rs 1000 it seems

I don't have balance to give you
Let me read your palm also

- It's okay, I'll take leave
- Don't make a fuss

- Show your palm to him
- I feel shy

He should feel shy!

'He is in the cine field
Kindly predict his future'

Wow! This is superb!
Because your Venus is exalted have a good chance of
even acting with Super Star!

'Silence! Silence!!'

Due to transit of Jupiter to Capricorn

...director Mani Ratnam will call you

- Then?
- 9 planets are favorable

Not surprising if you co-star with
Nayanthara, Trisha and Tamannaah

- 'Bro'
- Swami

From my mouth to God's ears
my prophesy will come true

After it happens
you'll come in search of me

Even if it doesn't
we'll come in search of you!

'What a curse!'

- Congratulations, sir
- Thank you, sir

- I'll take leave
- Bless you

Hold on, sir

You'll leave as soon as
your job is done, huh?

Be calm and listen to
what's in store for my palm

Kindly take a look, swami

Come on
Show me your palm


Bro, don't show your hand to anyone

It will be chopped to pieces

That's all I can say now
I don't like to be negative

You look like a negative
that hasn't been printed

'Who are you to foretell, black ape?'

How humiliating!

Thinks he's Nostradamus
He predicts only with cowrie shells

May justice lift its righteous head

Jai Hind!

They made my skull piping hot!



Your faces tell me're slightly on the affluent side

But you want an alliance from our family
That seems like a surprise twist

We decided to find
a bride for our son

What does it matter
mansion or mud house?

Are you saying we live
in a mud house?

Father-in-law, please stay out of this

- Go and bring the 'bride'
- Okay

Our girl is so-so
Not worth seeing

You and your jinxed mouth!

Why do you spoil for a fight?

'Come to my home', huh?

Do you like her, son?

Very much

We like your daughter

Is that so?

Shall we discuss all the other details?

What is there to discuss, sir?

I won't give a naya paisa
in the name of 'dowry'

Did we even mention the word?

It's very difficult to find a good bride

Gold, right?
We can save later

He has come prepared to say 'yes'

I won't agree if you ask
for a bike or car

We have all that, sir

They are in favor of this alliance

'Why are you listing out
one by one from memory?'

Keep quiet, son-in-law

My granddaughter will
visit us every Friday

She'll go back to your house
only on Monday

Even I can't part from my son for 2 days

'She can stay with you
for a whole week if you want'

'How do I get rid of them?'

Here comes the star of our house

Good afternoon

'Vanakkam', sir

- Where do you work?
- I'm trying for a chance to act in films

Cinema, huh?

Dozens of youngsters are waiting
in every street with their photos

How can you survive on that income?

No, if I get a good chance

...I can earn enough to have
the income tax department raid me

My eldest son runs 6 xerox shops

'Why don't you help him?'

It is very remunerative

Why be obsessed with cinema
and make a joke out of it?

You're mistaken, sir

Get up, man

You keep jabbering
Get up, man

Who are you to offer
my brother a job?

How dare you call him a joker!

- Mind your words
- Get out of my house

Hey! Keep quiet

Why are you hitting our son?

Step outside and
hit your son all you want

'Serves me right for
seeking this alliance'

1 minute, wait, sir
I'll convince my family

Please wait
Let's talk it over

- Let him go
- As if we need his advice!

- Your dreams
- He's so thick skinned

- And goal they are trying to bury
- 1 minute


What did they say that was new?
As if you haven't said the same, huh?

They were quite decent

Why this sudden overflow
of care and concern over me?

I'll take your limbs apart
if you laugh like this

This sister of yours waits till the groom
gets down from the auto at our doorstep

And then announces, 'I love someone
I'll kill myself if I don't marry him'

'Did we raise her, for her to die?'

Why didn't you blurt this out
when you asked me to match horoscopes?

Did I give you this groom's
horoscope to match?

I gave you my lover's horoscope, bro

Why dress to kill
for a groom you dislike?

'Well asked, my son'

Your sister has even asked

...that lover boy to come here at 4:00 pm

He is coming with his parents
in an auto, on the way

Yes, bro

These people were glued to their seats

I went through hell
before I could pack them off

But you made it easy for us

Clear all this rubbish now

You can also step out

Why glare daggers at me?
We need you only to stop a wedding

This is a match that should be confirmed
Better if you're absent, see you


Listen, Mr Murthy

If your name was not on
our Govt ID as head of the family won't have this roof over your head

We'll discuss all this later

Get ready, my dear

How much can I handle at this age?

- 'Irresponsible lot'
- Listen!

My bro-in-law is the breadwinner

'Even he is zipping his lips'

Are you creating a scene,
you addicted gambler?

I know how to get even!

Why drag my husband in
your father-son squabble?

I've buttered up your husband
He'll be in a good mood, go and check

- No respect for your akka
- Won't invite me for your wedding?

- You are 1st on our list, bro
- Smack you, get lost!

'Auto is here'

'Ask this man the address'

Which is Mr Murthy's house?

You are...?

No idea!

I'm hungry, let me
help myself to an apple

Come, we'll go in

I'll give you Ravindran's number

He'll be very helpful

You don't stand like a sculpture!

Okay, Savitha

- Sir
- Food photography

Then Kamalini

- Sir?
- 'Housing board lifestyle' is your subject

Actually you're very fortunate

'You'll get varied subjects
and expressions over there'

I'll refer you to one Mr Guru

I'll forward his number to you

'Contact him for any help'

[humming a song from 'En Annan']

Waitees, madam

- Why is he here?
- Muruga!

Sit down


Met him in the pub-

- 4-5 college girls are here
- What for?

Some project it seems

Went above my head
So I brought them to you

Did you get a commission?

I've brought them to you
Will I even dare to ask?

- I swear, no
- Then why bring them here?

'They have cameras'

Photo or cinema means in our area
I can only think of you

Don't lay it too thick
Bring them over

- Want tea?
- It's okay, Muruga

Then pay the bill

Isn't it wrong, sir?

It isn't a crime at all
to make use of chaps like this

Handle him with care

- Okay?
- Thank you

DD, sir

- Sir?
- Drunken dance

We saw her in the pub
Birthday baby

Try to look sad and pathetic

In the pink of health
drowning in those spirits!

Speak decently, sir

- Hi
- Sit down

- Would you like tea?
- No, thank you

What about you?

You won't drink here
What I can do for you?

First of all, sorry


That pub incident the other day

'I reflected on what I did'

What I did was wrong

- Oho!
- I'll change my ways now

Don't change your habit
for random strangers

Reform if you feel it is right
Or else maintain your attitude

- Punch?
- Sounds nice, sir

Come to the point

'Housing board' is a project
for my photography course

I'll express the struggles here
through the photos I click

You'll mint money
out of our hardship, huh?

Our struggles are of no use to us
Let them at least benefit

Expose only our struggles or what?

No, I'll showcase your happiness too

You'll be envious of us
Shall we?

- They will click you also, sir
- For sure

- They play out in the streets
- Politicians play in our lives!

Vanakkam, bro

Yellow shirt, Philips anna
Meet and greet him

They are here to click photos, bro

Ask them to do a good job

- Recognize this game?
- No, we don't

You roll this round ball
in shopping malls and show off

- Slow bowling or fast bowling
- This is our area's snow bowling

All smart kids but won't go
beyond 10th grade in our area

Isn't our Govt aiding them?

How? Education will give knowledge

Knowledge will give us jobs
Will it appease our hunger?

Click your photos

Hold your ammunition in your hand

Pick it up

Gather everything

She is Selvi akka of our area

'Look at her blushing'

When dogs sleep
she'll get up like a ghost

Knot her hair, pour the batter in a mud pot

...thinking of her mother-in-law and
sister-in-law, twist, turn right and left

She'll slide the fritters into boiling oil
and take them out crisp and crunchy

Wow! Our tastebuds will dance in joy!

But if akka washes her hands
I don't guarantee the taste!

- Sorry, sis

Why lose your cool?
Pose for the photo

- Go ahead and click
- Take it

Selvi akka, smile
That's my beauty queen!


He is our area's costume designer

He's the reason for our boys
being stylish and slick

If you give him a pattern
from a magazine or newspaper

He'll copy it to the T and
fling it on your face in 1 hour

Talent 100%
But poverty is 101%

That's why he's stuck in this hell hole
But he'll come up in life soon, bro?

Take your photo

Pose for the camera

This is our Mary akka's shop

Just like how 'bhajji'
is special in our beach

...our akka has the best handicrafts
to decorate your shelf at home

Mary akka
Flash your smile

This is the last stop for today

If you want more
come tomorrow

I'll take you around
You can click more


She said she would take a photo of us

- Ask her
- Hello?

Excuse me

You forgot to click us?

- Er...I forgot
- How can you forget?

I clicked the snaps
I forgot to show you

- Then show us
- Tell me your number

- 733...
- Tell me your number

Sir just gave you his number

I asked for your number

'He'll call me a hero everywhere
Now sudden 'Ghajini' memory!'

- Didn't get
- You will

1 minute

I like you

Don't get me wrong

I like you, wanted to know
if we can be friends


I got it

- Thanks
- Enjoy

Sir, look at this

What is this, sir?

That girl has clicked only me, huh?

Look...look here, sir

Here, in this corner

'Why are you hiding and peeping?'

Why didn't you come into the frame?

"In my eyes a butterfly smiles enticing"

"In my heart it sprouts wings rejoicing"

"In my eyes a butterfly
smiles irresistible"

"In my heart it sprouts wings invisible"

"Happiness in everything I see
My heart liquefies in ecstasy"

"In the palm of my hand tight
is my laughter clasped in delight?"

"In everything I hear, rhythm echoes to me"

"In all that moves, dancing feet I see"

"In my breath's journey
a fragrant festival spree"

"The wonderful wind whispers in my ear
Dusty earth chats with my feet so clear"

"Whose words will I hear?"

"Flowers stop me with their heads crooning
My companion pulls me fondly beckoning"

"Whose call will I comply unquestioning?"

"Beauty in all her grace
invites with a smiling face"

"Budding wings of love so true
bloom and blossom anew"

"Beauty in all her enchantment
allures with an air of amusement"

"Budding wings of love and shyness
bloom and blossom in earnest"

"Happiness in everything I see
My heart liquefies in ecstasy"

"In the palm of my hand tight
is my laughter clasped in delight?"

"In everything I hear, rhythm echoes to me
In all that moves, dancing feet I see"

"In my breath's journey
a fragrant festival spree"

"The wonderful wind whispers in my ear
Dusty earth chats with my feet so clear"

"Whose words will I now hear?"

"Flowers stop me with their heads crooning
My companion pulls me fondly beckoning"

"Whose call will I comply unquestioning?"

You called me so many times

I was in a seminar
That's why I couldn't answer

- Pick up that invitation
- For whom?

My sister's wedding

Take a look and contribute generously

Show your power!

The other day I saw you in the pub

You are here now, why?

- Because
- Let me answer

Elephant needs sugarcane grove
to appease its hunger

But an ant needs just the residue

When wallet heavy, elephant
when pocket empty be an ant

Aiyo! What a punch line, sir!

Hearing his punch lines
don't try to impress him

He won't fall for your bait

You tried to impress him in the pub?

Sir, you're Tamil Nadu's treasure trove
Don't try to slip away so soon

- Even I want 2 'idlis'
- My plate tempted you, huh?

"Like a delicate flower as a princess
I was wrapped in cool comfort of affluence"


'I wanted to tell you right then'

Actually I'm the hero
He's the comedian

"Inside a matchbox with bare minimum
I found the azure sky extend maximum"

"On a 'dosa' pan; way to my heart
I found love, never to part"

"In my eyes a butterfly smiles enticing"

"In my heart it sprouts wings rejoicing"

"Without knocking my world has opened"

"All of a sudden this has happened"

"In my eyes a butterfly
smiles irresistible"

"In my heart it sprouts wings invisible"

"Without knocking my world has opened"

"Vibes clicked and this has happened"

"Nothing else, I conclude
My heart doesn't need, dude"

"Dearest, we'll seize the moment
Hand in hand, with wonderment"

"Like a shooting star, love
I fell from the sky above"

"In one single day I lived a lifetime
Thanks to you, my love sublime"

"Beauty in all her grace
invites with a smiling face"

"Budding wings of love so true
bloom and blossom anew"

"Budding wings of love and shyness
bloom and blossom in earnest"

We've already invested a lot
for this project in Theni, sir

But as of now

It is a tough proposition considering
the present situation of that hillock town

You said there's land
available near Krishnagiri?

Either it is closer to residential areas
Otherwise it is reserve forest area

Bengal, Sikkim, Haryana

Only reason our projects
were rejected in these 3 states

Issues in the chemicals we dumped

I don't know what methods you'll resort to

'Construction has to start
within 2 months'

Only the good news
you've registered the land what my ears should hear!

How will we leave it?
I'll handle everything

Vanakkam, bro

Hello, Gopi, looks like
your business is booming, huh?

Don't rub salt on the wound, bro
I hardly get more than 2% commission

That corporate company is
looking for land elsewhere

He'll very soon ask us
to return his deposit

Don't give in to his demands, bro

The honey bee will
definitely build its nest

What actually matters is
who drinks the honey, huh?

I'll call you back in a while, okay?

Lunch is ready?

- Sir, 1 photo
- Oh yes!

Please click a snap of us

How are you, sir?

I'm fine, Muruga
How are you?

- Thank you, sir
- You're welcome

What brings you here, Muruga?

Director asked me to follow up
He has promised me a good role

Will you join me for lunch?

Let us eat with him

- We had lunch
- It's okay, come

- No, please carry on
- Okay, see you

- Thank you, sir
- See you, bro

Sir, Mr Ramji is your friend

Why didn't you accept his invitation?

One who sincerely invites won't ask
'Will you join me for lunch?'

He'll clasp my hand and say
'Let's go and eat now'

My father's pearl of wisdom, sir

Don't give me all this dope
just because you have a way with words!

You're truly a brain box
C.I.D Shankar, sir

Missed a good meal, sir

'Murugan, come to the hospital right now'

Which hospital?

'Meenakshi hospital'

Hey! What happened?

You're fine, right?

Need to do an abortion

- Abortion, huh?
- Sir! You never told me

When? You were with me all the time

As if I'll have an eye witness!

- Not me, sir
- Not for me either

- Then?
- My friend

Sir, you've climbed 1 tree and
plucked the fruits off another tree

Don't be so vulgar, I'm not
responsible for that either, sir

- Who is it?
- Revathy


I'll call you back, di

Smooth operator!

She and her boyfriend have
been dating from their school days

He is in the Navy now

They didn't meet
for a whole year

They met last month

She had missed him so much

Both were a bit careless

Ended up pregnant

You're saying it casually like how
our phone hangs suddenly

Will you be serious, sir?

- Hey! Tell me
- What was I saying?

Ended up pregnant

'What was I saying', huh?

She called me and said
she wants to commit suicide

I suggested it is simpler to go in
for an abortion and I brought her here

Hospital is insisting on formal
approval from my parents

Or my husband

That's why-

You brought your friend
who wanted to kill herself her foetus can be killed, right?

Decent name for it
is abortion, correct?

- What happened?
- I need time to think

Brainwaves don't flash
in the wave of a hand, no?

Let's go and talk to your parents

Which parent will accept and forgive
after having stepped out of line like this?

So you realize it is wrong?

- Very good
- If you can help, do so

Otherwise I'll handle it
Don't be sarcastic

I know her parents very well, okay?

Confirmed, they won't accept this

Where is this 2-legged vehicle rushing to?

Look, I don't know her parents at all

But I can assure you 101%
they won't accept her condition

Still we have no choice
Let us go and meet them

Talk and try to convince them

If they don't accept her
we can plan our next step


Come on

'What are you saying?'

'I pampered you because you're my daughter
and you've brought disgrace to our family'

Why don't you just die?

I trusted you completely

You made me bow my head in shame
Why didn't you elope with him then?

- How dare you come home!
- What are you hitting her?

I sent her to study and
she loves some riff-raff

Why hit her mercilessly like this?

She is pregnant, I say

Appa, let go of her

Stop it, dear

- Listen to us, pa
- Just follow me

- Don't protect her
- Listen to us, pa

Why are you behaving so inhumanly?

What a disgrace!

Sir, come when
you're done hitting

We are guests
waiting to talk to you

Who are you?

Kamalini's boyfriend, sir

Only then he will take us seriously

- Kamalini, what is this?
- Uncle

Sir, why are you so short fused?

Revathy was scared to tell you

So she told her friend
she wants to commit suicide

Worried her friend will die...

Kamalini decided to kill
the foetus and so she called me

Revathy is your heir
That baby is your lineage

How can I decide for you?
So I sent her back to you

But your anger got the better of you

What else do you want me to do?

If our child has a problem
as parents we should be accessible

She shouldn't be scared
how her parents will react, sir

Then there's no bond, sir

I'm a random stranger and
she asked me to sign her abortion

I'll teach her a lesso-

Sir, why are you so over emotional, huh?

Your brain can't think logically
when your emotions take over

But I'll help you
I'll give you 2 options

Option number 1!

You can beat her up till 5:00 pm
or 5 weeks locking her in

You will get her baby aborted
and find a groom of your choice

Then what will happen?

Your loving bond between
your daughter and you will sever

Option number 2!

Do a background check
on her boyfriend

If he's a good chap
get them married

You'll have a grandchild in 10 months

Who knows how famous
this baby will become?

How many people are waiting
to applaud your grandchild's feat?

I know what you're thinking

How your relatives will react, right?

Please ignore them

You'll spend your hard earned money

They'll find fault with your feast
after licking the banana leaf clean!

Can we give up our child's life
for their jealous comments?

Sir, I know that girl
for a very short period

Even I realize she is good as gold

Imagine your feelings as her father

I understand your plight, sir

What is your name, sir?


Nice meeting you, sir
Take care, sir

Come on, let's go

- How can you leave?
- What now?

Mission accomplished

Their family problem
They can handle it now

- Why should we hover around?
- What if something drastic happens?

Nothing to worry

When I spoke for so long, he thought
for a second without losing his cool?

Problem was solved right then

Good character and anger
go hand in glove

Anger evaporated with those blows
His good nature surfaced, all is well

- How are you, akka?
- Come in

Go and sit there
Bhai, 2 glasses tea

My hand!

- Butter biscuit
- Bro, butter biscuits

- Fresh ones please
- Okay

Wonder what's next!

- Sit down
- You take a seat

This is my area
Please sit


'Muruga, be brave!'

Muruga'nna, soooper coolers

- Thanks, my pet
- My pleasure, bro

Take your coolers off please?

He just complimented me

I need to look at your eyes
and say something

Go on

What I wanted to say was-

Malefic effects of Saturn, huh?

- For 7 and ½ years
- Jinxed-mouth!

Ignore the ill-omen!
You continue


Biscuit fell into the tea

Why don't you blurt it out?
Don't hum and haw

- Sorry
- Don't feel bad

I'll eat that bit in the end
Tell me whatever is on your mind

Er...I didn't realize
at first when I met you

You, your area
Your people

This tea shop
Bhai the owner

Even this butter biscuit
I didn't realize I will like this much

Why should I meet you in the pub?

Why should I fal-

Fall flat for you

Love, huh?

I thought as much

Why today of all days
my biscuit fell into the tea?!

The day I met you
I made up my mind

You should never like me
at any moment in time

You are up there
and I am way below

You don't have to climb down for my sake
I needn't climb up to your level either

It will take time
and I'll get tired

Let me repeat the same dialog

Our brain won't think logically
when our emotions take over

- No-
- I'll help you

I'll give you 2 options

Option number 1, we can be in love
and roam around park, beach, theaters

Even our montage song will be cool, okay?

You'll get me branded shirts
and we'll go on long car rides

Your father's BP will shoot up
seeing us together

Will I be able to face him?

No, I can't because I have
a family to take care

My ambition plus my people
who depend on me

Then option number 2!

We meet on the road
10 years later, serendipity

I introduce my wife and you say
'This is my husband'

But instead if you dare call me 'bro'

Girl, I swear you've had it!

I somehow think
option #2 will work out

Give it a thought

I think your tea is cold
Shall I order a fresh glass?

- Bhai, 1 glass-
- No need, anna

I'll go home and drink, bro

You called me 'anna'?

See you, bro?

Thanks, 'na

So soon, huh?

Fast as lightning!

Bhai, give me your new biscuit

- This packet?
- Yes, that one


Bro, how are you?

- You, huh?
- 'Sleeping, bro?'

What do you want now?

Making sure others don't sleep

I wanted to know
if you were sleeping soundly

A girl came of her own accord
and professed her love to you

'What should you do?'

Accept your feelings for her too

'Or deny it'

Instead you're doling out advice

Giving me options

'What do you think of yourself, huh?'

Listen, if I see you face to face-

In my area, a girl called Kamala

'...fell in love with one fellow
When he denied his feelings for her'

...she tortured him
to the worst possible extent

Unable to cope, imagine
if he surrendered to her!

Are you fully tanked?

Don't even for a minute think
I drank because of love failure

I am drinking with full confidence
my love will succeed, huh?

You have the gall to give me options!

'Listen now to my options for you
Either you profess your love to me'

I'll respond likewise
and we can have a gala time

Or else shut up and hang around
with me like we usually do

'Let it be 6 months or 1 year
Whenever love blooms, let it blossom'

Till then let it be my one-sided love

I'm fully sloshed

'I intend having a 'rock & roll'
session with you'

I've got 2 left feet

Try to stop me if you can, da

I said I've got 2 left feet,
you drunken female!

Jujujuju...go to bed, baby

Baby, huh?

"Ruling king"

"Ruling king pulling heartstrings"

"Look what glad tidings
the future brings"

"Kamala is a girl so stylish
She is yours to relish"

"Aiyaiyo! She's a live wire
Kamala your heart's desire"

"Kamala is a glam doll snazzy
She is all yours, joyous and jazzy"

"Aiyaiyo! She's a holy terror
Kamala your heart's tremor"

"Kamala, o' so classy
My glam-doll; lovely lassie"

"Without giving us a green signal
you stand tight lipped, hey girl!"

"Kamala, o' so snazzy
My Miss World; lovely lassie"

"Without nodding your head
you stand there lips zipped"

"Hiccups overlap
Maybe a booby trap"

"If you inch any closer to me
my heart goes bumptey-bump, baby"

"My status is single
I'm ready to mingle"

"If love breezes in with a chime
attend to your duty full time"

"Kamala, my flower, my love
Kamala, my lotus from above"

"Kamala, o' so classy
My glam-doll; lovely lassie"

"Without giving us a green signal
you stand tight lipped, hey girl!"

"Kamala, o' so snazzy
My Miss World; lovely lassie"

"Without nodding your head
you stand there lips zipped"

"Is your heart kindled by fiery desire?"

"Via a current wire
her eyes electrify fire"

"Is your heart sparked by red-hot desire?"

"Via a current wire
her eyes inflame fire"

Don't hit my navel!

- Okay, huh?
- Okay!

"Ruling king"

"Ruling king pulling heartstrings"

"Like a myna clinging to a current cable
you made my heart flutter so vulnerable"

"Firing a love-rocket on a single daredevil
you made my mind go bonkers and yell"

"I'm iMac apple
You're high volts, pal"

"Don't power me up inside
Don't take my heart on a terror-ride"

"You play games with your iBall gizmo
Fireworks flare up in my brain as dynamo"

"Kamala is a girl so stylish
She is yours to relish"

"Aiyaiyo! She's a live wire
Kamala your heart's desire"

"Kamala is a glam doll snazzy
She is all yours, joyous and jazzy"

"Aiyaiyo! She's a holy terror
Kamala your heart's tremor"

"Kamala, o' so classy
My glam-doll; lovely lassie"

"Without giving us a green signal
you stand tight lipped, hey girl!"

"Kamala, o' so snazzy
My Miss Universe; pretty posy"

"Without nodding your head
you stand there lips zipped"

"Is your heart kindled by fiery desire?"

"Via a current wire
her eyes electrify fire"

"Is your heart sparked by red-hot desire?"

"Via a current wire
her eyes magnetize fire"

"Ruling king"

"Ruling king pulling her heartstring"

"Look what glad tidings
the future brings"

"Kamala, the lotus-eyed one
Kamala, forever full of fun"


Vanakkam, sir

Please take a seat

How much is the current rate
per acre near Krishnagiri, sir?

Krishnagiri, huh?

Sir, I know the agent
you're dealing with over there

We have our informers

Yes, I don't deny it

So are you saying you won't be
building your factory in my town?

What can we do, sir?

We've waited long enough

Your townsfolk are not being cooperative

You've lost your MLA clout
On what basis do you want us to wait?

True, I lost my political post

But do you remember
who is responsible for it?

I got into the bad books
of my Party higher ups

Bad name with the people too

Having lost my political clout

I've been working for your factory
to be set up in my town

It is just a matter of time

'I will definitely win this election'

'Why are you glaring at me?'

Govt supply of groceries,
electricity, water supply, road

I've disconnected
all these for my people

They will automatically come to me

Only with the below poverty line

...we can ask and get what we want

Sir, I'm a business man

But I'm a politician

My ideas are on a different plane

You are trapped in a lion's den

Hereafter the lion decides
whether to release you or not

Let's wait and see

We'll see

He doesn't know

...who the lion is!

I don't believe he will
come over to our side

He has no other choice

He has to depend on us

Bro, this is the chap
chasing our madam

- Hello
- 'Where are you?'

Movie is about to start

At the signal, give me 10 minutes

'Don't lie'


Just say 'I'm at the signal
I'll be at the theater in 10 minutes'

She isn't believing me

'He is at the signal'

'In 10 minutes he'll be
at Woodlands theatre'


Okay, make it fast
I don't want to miss the 1st scene

Hey! 1 minute

'If you are man enough
come out, I say'

'TN 10 AV 8049'

That's my bike in the parking lot

Hey! Who is this
screening such a note?

Brother, show me your face please

You are a man for sure
but that's my bike, sit down

- I'll go and check?
- I'll come too

You sit, I'll be back

Leave some for me, okay?

'He is at the signal'

'In 10 minutes he'll be
at Woodlands theatre'

Who are they?

They called me out and
now they are running away

They got scared of me, not you

They are my dad's men

Is your father Baashhaa of Bombay?

I have to call and tell my dad
before they go and report to him

- He's your father, right?
- Yes

Why such a serious tone?

Call him

- 'Hello, appa
- Where are you?'


Didn't I tell you
not to step out?


You go to your home now


'Let go of me'

'Let me go'

Let me go

Let go of me


"Look at him, the spark in his eyes
He's dynamite; a real prize"

Looks like you're in Chennai now

Hey! If anything untoward
happens to my daughter-

Nothing will happen

I would like you to be present
to witness whatever happens

I've shared the location with you
Come as soon as you can

'I'll be waiting'

Whether you like me or not
you've got no choice but to marry me

And there's no change in that

Are you very confident?

- I'll hit-
- Do you have full faith?

What's that stare in aid of?

Half an hour ago
if you had kidnapped me would've kidnapped
only Sanjay Yadav's daughter

You made a mistake

You kidnapped me right in front of
the man I love with all my heart

Didn't you see his eyes when you hit me
and shoved me into the car?

I saw the blind fury in his eyes

Wondering about your fate
under that rage of fury

...scares the hell out of me!

Better if you leave me right here

For your own good

Hey! Are you threatening me?

Chee chee! You shared
this location only with my dad?

I shared the same with him

I swear on everything sacred

Until 10 minutes ago that girl and I
shared only a decent bond of friendship

But the moment you hit her
in front of me

Imagine, that fury within me
is refusing to simmer down!

Only then I realized
how much I love her


'Sorry, we kidnapped madam unknowingly'

I don't want any of you
to come and say this

I'm not in a mood
to forgive any of you

If you have any idea like that

...kindly delete, okay?

My anger will abate only when
I bash you up in front of her eyes

That's my 1st gift to her

Okay, baby?

Trying to make trouble?


Leave now
Right away


Who said his name is 'Murugan'?

His name is Thamizh!




Murugan who is in love
with my daughter

Who is he?
What does he do?

Where does he live?

I need all these details

I have to meet him

Yes, sir

'Do not chop down trees
Do not fell them please'

'Persevere to preserve
Trees we will conserve'

'Few Months Ago'

'Do not destroy nature
We will protect trees forever'

'Do not chop trees down
Do not fell them to the ground'

[slogan shouting continues]

You are all girls gathered here

If the problem magnifies and you get hurt
you have to take your exams tomorrow

Won't you find it tough?

Go home now

We appreciate your concern

We can take care
You carry on

After all you're a female!
What temerity, huh?

If a girl is protesting so bold and brave
and raising her voice, shouldn't you know?

There is a man behind me!

Who is that man?
Call him here

- What is the issue, darling?
- Listen, dear

They are planning to chop this tree
which is an obstruction to this shop

How many generations
it would have witnessed

If they want to chop it so coolly
how can we accept it?


You'll bring the roof down even if
a plant is uprooted, imagine a tree then

Who is that monkey, dear?

"Hey there! Move, dude
I will rip your ears into two"

"Who came spoiling for a fight?
I'm king of blows; to wrong the right"

This chap?

Where are you off to?

"Move aside, hey you!
Your face will be minus ears 2"

"Who wanted to pick a fight?
I have come to wrong the right"


"Even fear will flee; terrified
with a glimpse of him, petrified"

- Oh gawd!
- Wait

- Isn't it this buffalo, dear?
- Yes

He is sitting in cool comfort, that's why

Land, trees, air is for everyone
You have the right only to enjoy nature

You have money to
buy an air-conditioner

For those who can't afford
trees supplement as air conditioners

Only because of chopping trees
we are already buying water

- Moron!
- Don't you watch the News on TV?

People waiting for hours
for water, carrying pots?

Even after watching it
won't people like you change?

If humans get angry
they will resort to only blows

But if Mother Nature gets furious
she will wipe out everything!

Let's preserve the existing trees and
save them for our next generation

Stop felling trees

If you do, she will protest
If she opposes, I have to show up

But sir is very busy
Do you get it?

He has reformed, darling

You had better grow few plants
in front of your shop

- Come, my dear
- Okay

Sister-in-law, Thamizh isn't here as yet?

He went to bring Thenmozhi
He'll be here any minute

Hello, Thamizh

Welcome, Thamizh

Let's make this festival
the most memorable one

I must tell you this also

Kuzhandhaivel has got
the MLA seat once again

We must unite and make him win

How can we dispute your words, sir?

We'll always be 2 steps behind you

What do you say?

- Yes
- Of course

"I am as happy as can be
Nothing else is necessary"

"My home sweet home and hometown
charming and cheerful all around"

"No comparison to the love I'm bound"

"Seas can run dry if that's possible
Mountains can even tilt or topple"

"But true love will never wane, impossible"

"What else is necessary?"

"I lead a life most satisfactory"

"What else do I need, tell me?"

"What else is basic necessity?"

"This life is heaven on earth in totality"

"Every day is a festival gregarious"

"Like golden drops of honey nectarous"

"Shoulder to lean on as bonds bloom"

"Dreams feathered by a peacock plume"

"Even if this world opposes vehemently
a brave heart that defends diligently"

"This family has a proud lineage steadily
to sacrifice their own life so speedily"

"When you walk by
with your hawk-eye"

"Even eyes that don't notice
will immediately realize"

"Whatever you say is our oracle"

"Sir, we consider your word as gospel"

"We are on cloud nine
What else do we need divine?"

"Your family is known for its generosity"

"Like father like son you see
He is our aiya's progeny"

"What else is compulsory?"

"I lead a life most satisfactory"

Please come in

- Hello, how are you?
- Very good, bro

Please sit

You found your way here only now!

Ma, with whose permission
are they here to see me as a bride?

They just wanted to see you informally

Tomorrow isn't your wedding!

Because they are appa's relatives
don't act smart, I'll poison the coffee

Anyhow you'll eventually get married

- Why be so rude?
- Let go, aunt

This groom lives in London

You can happily sightsee
whole of London, right?

Manju, will you divorce your husband
and marry this London chap?

- I can go and suggest
- Your tongue is your worst enemy!

- 'Rajeswari'
- Your daughter, no?

Please bring Thenmozhi, dear

Don't make me talk unnecessarily, ma

- I don't want this
- Listen

'Thenmozhi is so grown up now'

- 'We saw her when she was young
- Yes'

- 'How are you, dear?
- How are you all doing?'

- We are fine
- Doing good

Okay, bro, we will take leave

Why leave so soon?
You can have lunch with us

We'll come another day, bro

- Why don't you eat?
- When we come with our son

- We'll take leave now
- Thank you, take care

I can't get married to a stranger
and live somewhere else

At least one of you try
to understand my feelings

- Thenu, this groom lives abroad
- That's why, dear

My uncle Thamizh also worked in Dubai

Didn't he come back for us
because he was so homesick?

Thenu, stop beating around the bush

Why don't you be frank and say
'I'll marry only Thamizh'?

Is it so, my dear?

The entire town's gossip is
I'll become your daughter-in-law

But you and aunt have never
felt that way even once, right?

Aunt, Thenmozhi is very talkative

You think I won't be
able to adjust here, right?


This family is my breath

All of you please
understand how I feel

- Don't cry
- Looks like you are going out somewhere


She says if she has to get married
she will marry only you

Did you say so, Thenu?

From childhood we've played together,
made fun and teased each other

How can you assume
I'll marry you because of that?

I don't know if you will marry me or not

But I know you like me a lot

I believe you won't reject me

- Uncle, where is the groom from?
- Our town only

But he lives in London now

London bridegroom is it?


Say 'no', pa

Why are mother and daughter conspiring?

- Wait
- Uncle...uncle

Why are you jumping to conclusions?

- Father
- Tell me

She is the bride of our house, our gem,
jewel in our crown, she belongs only to us

Tell them we don't fix
any alliance outside our family

- You're such a minx, son
- Are you happy now?

Now you must blush, dear

Am I not right?

Hit him

Beating me before we get married?

I don't want her
She's all yours

Wait, dear

- Screw you!
- She wants me even before we get married

Enough of all this banter

We can fix an auspicious day
after the festival and get you both married


Hello, sir
Please come here

Speak in Hindi

Anyone knows Tamil?

- What, madam?
- What is happening here?

We are preparing this ground
for a copper factory to be built here

Copper factory?

People in our town own this land
How can a factory be built here?

'What are you saying?'

'From our forefathers' time
this has been agricultural land'

'You tricked us by making us
part with our documen-'

- Yes, sir
- What happened?

People of this town are objecting
to a factory being constructed here

- Has the property been registered?
- Yes, sir

Then toss the legal document
on to their faces!

'This is our Marimuthu bro's land'

Kumaresan anna's land

- Show
- Look here

- Kumaresan bro's land?
- This is Sekar anna's land

- How did they get ownership?
- Don't know

Thamizh is here
Let's discuss it with him

I'll get back to you

Hey, come

- What's the problem?
- Factory is coming up here

Good if a factory comes up
Why protest for that?

Not an ordinary factory

It is a copper factory
which will affect people's health

What are the repercussions?

'Show me'

'Toxins from copper when melted
will disperse in the air'

'When people inhale, it will
irritate their respiratory tubes'

'And affect their lungs and lead to
miscarriages in pregnant women'

'It can affect even the next generation'

'A similar factory was
built in Maharashtra'

'People protested with
great difficulty and closed it'

- How did this happen?
- Means?

Can't happen without your knowledge
You would've only given the documents

A real estate group brought this land
in bulk intending to plan a layout

But I was not aware
of this factory plan

Your uncle Kuzhandhaivel
is completely in the loop

How did they get hold of
our people's lands?

All because of corporate rascals, bro

Everyone has bought 10 acres each
from registrar's office to mill owners

I think they sold each land separately
and handed it over to a corporate firm

This won't be accepted
anywhere else in our country

- What can we do now?
- We can't touch them

Bottom line, we can't even go
anywhere near their area

I was also wondering what to do

You gave me the perfect idea!


- Have they left?
- They got scared and ran away

Sir, shall I-

Get into the car


All get in

Leave now
Right away

Take your vehicle and leave

'Listen, dear'

Your father wants to talk to you

- Tell me, pa
- 'What's the point in beating him?'

- This factory is bad news
- 'I know'

- 'You're hitting the wrong man, come home'
- No, but-

'Just listen to me'

Who the hell invented this wretched phone!

'It's wrong'

'I can handle it'

Hello, Devaraj

Is it something important
you want to discuss?

I believe a proposed factory here
will be hazardous for the entire town

Someone has fed you
wrong information

If this factory-

Hey! Get up
Get up, I say

Treating an elderly gentleman
with scant respect seated like this

You are speaking out of turn

- Do you know who I am?
- I care two hoots, da

First you find out about me,
my father and our entire town

Thamizh, let me handle this, okay?

Sanjay sir, please wait

Gopi, escort sir to the other room

- Please come, sir
- Wait for a little while

Devaraj, you're speaking
without knowing the actual facts

Most of our people will benefit
jobwise because of this factory

Our town will also prosper

Can you explain how?

Air we breathe is more important
than the money lining our pockets

Who needs a factory
which pollutes our atmosphere?

Kuzhandhai, we work hard and earn
only for the benefit of our next generation

By affecting our health
and our future generations

...why do we need that damn factory?

Devaraj, when a new factory is built...

...people are bound to object

You're getting emotional
listening to all that

Then how will our nation
become a superpower?

We are mainly an agricultural nation

If you leave our farmers in peace
we will become a superpower

It is no longer in our hands

Kuzhandhai, you are the MLA of our town

If we face any issue, you are
supposed to stop it and it is your duty

But if you instigate the issue!

I can't do it

Then that proposed factory
will remain a pipedream!

Do what you can

Come, my son

What gross injustice!

How can any man
stoop so low, Thamizh?

Who, ma?
Appa's friend?

He has been like that from birth

Only we got to know about him rather late

Dai, how long will you
keep discussing this?

If you know someone is a wrongdoer,
you shouldn't harp on it, just let go

How can we let go?

Think he'll stop his plans
because you opposed this factory

He is moving everything legally
We should also get a stay legally

Big deal 'legal'?
Even if we take that route-

Uncle, only if we get a stay in your name,
you have to run from pillar to post

Let us get the stay
in your son's name

Vanakkam, leader

Vanakkam, Thamizh

Please take a seat

- How are you, sir?
- Good, tell me

I've been warning you
from the beginning

Kuzhandhai is a bad apple

You were the only one who trusted him
and embraced him as your good friend

What happened now?

Just tell me
why you are here

Nothing much

My leader wanted me to
meet you and get your support

I'm not in a position
to talk about support now

You can please leav-

Listen to me
Both of us can-

Hasn't he made it very clear?

No, Thamizh, how can he build
a factory disregarding our objection?

We'll take care of that
You get going


Lady Luck will knock at your door
only once, kindly think and then decide

I'll take leave, sir

Stupid of me to have thought
I can line my pocket helping them

I hate these mediators
and party volunteers, pa!

Now all these politicians will step
in here asking you to support them

In the end only our family and
our townsfolk will be the worst sufferers

Please take a stand, uncle

What decision can I take, dear?

Stand against him
in this election

Let's see

Is this a game?

To impulsively compete and contest?

He has the authority already

Plus enough money power

Don't you know what happens
when power and money merge?

Who gave him the power?

We were the ones who loaded him
with all that authority

Let's snatch back the power

Hey! Don't talk like an imbecile

He has the back up
of a political party

Our entire town supports us, pa


In that case, you contest this election

Have you gone mad or-

Only you will contest

Whoever has dreams and desires
only he can bring about a change

Only he can guide the people
towards progress

I understand your feelings

If someone commits a crime, I feel
like beating him to a pulp, hacking him

I'm not patient like you

The day I become as experienced
and knowledgeable as you

I learn to think and
I'm as patient as you

I'll contest then
It is your time now

Do something useful

- Well said, Thamizh
- Old lady, stop dear father Devaraj

Don't talk nineteen to the dozen

- Come
- Please come, uncle

Vanakkam, aiya

Sir we have told Thamizh
whatever we thought sounds right

Whatever you decide
we will obey implicitly

- Please let us know, sir
- Yes, sir

- What is this, Thamizh?
- Aiya has accepted

Long live Devaraj aiya

Long live Mr Devaraj

'Tamil Nadu Assembly By-Election
Public campaign for Kuzhandhaivel'

'District Collector's office, Theni'

'Results of the election held in
Marudhamangalam will be announced now'

'Independent candidate
Devaraj contesting against'

'Kuzhandhaivel of
People's Progressive party'

'...has won by a huge
margin of 90,000 votes'

[loud cheering]

You contested against
your own friend and won, eh?

I am so happy for you

I'll always be true to friendship

But I won't become a slave!

Congratulations MLA Devaraj sir

Let your service continue


Dai Thamizh

- What, pa?
- Somehow I feel

- Very scared
- Scared...why?

How will we uphold the trust and faith
our people have lavished us with?

We can do anything we want
by serving our people

- Let's see who will stop us
- Listen

This is the problem

Your anger scares me

What are you trying to say?

Don't lose your cool

This is how I don't want you to react

Listen to me patiently

Think and then decide

Only if need be

Lose your temper!

You got this MLA title

And I didn't realise
you were advising me

But people have been waiting
for a long time MLA Devaraj sir

Come, meet and greet them

Devaraj aiya, long live

Long live
Devaraj sir

[crowd cheering]

I've trusted you and invested
a mountain load of money till now

How could you lose like this?

It is said a lion will be respected
only till it roams in the jungle

The same lion if it enters the town

...even the street dogs
will bark at it I believe


I should be the one to get angry

If he gets the stay
doomsday for us!

Don't be hasty, sir

So what if we lose?
There will be another election

'Won't we win then?'

What rubbish he's talking, huh?

No fireworks before Deepavali,
our festival of lights, sir

Did he say so?

- Vanakkam, sir
- Welcome

- Lawyer Gopal has come
- Good morning, sir

I've completed the court formalities

Please take a seat

If Thamizh signs the documents
tomorrow, stay is confirmed

- Thamizh, will you go?
- Anna

Tomorrow is our temple festival

Can't you finish this 2 days later?

Our people's problems are
as important as our temple festival

Isn't that why our lawyer
has come in person, huh?

- Thamizh
- Appa

Go sign and then come
to the festival directly

Until then we'll take care

- What do you say?
- Okay, sir

I'll take leave

- Tomorrow then
- I'll be there for sure

- Where are you?
- What, darling?

Your parents asked for you

Lawyer's office
I told you, no?

All the couples here
are enjoying themselves

'Why can't you hurry up?'

Okay, I'll come

I got dressed in a sari
just for your sake, dear

I'll be there!

I'll just tell aunt
where uncle is and be back

- 5 minutes
- Come soon

She is asking for a 'laddu'
Find out what she wants

You want a 'laddu'?

Thenu, buy it for her

- She's very stubborn
- Hold my hand

How long will it take?

I'll be there, Thamizh

I had a flat tyre on the way
I'll be there in half an hour

I've been waiting for so long

I'm on my way

- I must attend the temple festival
- 'I am coming with you too'

We can go together

- Who wants tea?
- Me

All I asked was tea

Not anything else, go!

Amma, I'm feeling sleepy

Amma, we'll go home
She's feeling sleepy it seems

You be here
I'll take her with me

I'll also go home, ma

You watch the events and come

- They will be having fun
- We can also join the fun

Why feel bad?

Why are you here?

- Not attending the temple festival?
- Lawyer said we have a hearing on Monday

He asked me to wait

- Hearing on Monday?
- He said he'll be here now

Your hearing is only next week

- Really?
- Why did he say this?

- Yov Gopal
- Hello?

Thamizh has come

You said you're in Theni it seems

Hey! Ramana
Don't blabber something

'Just keep saying I'm coming
whatever Thamizh asks you'

'Got it?'

If you betray those who trust you
whom do we trust then?

- Thamizh?!
- Tell me the truth

In that temple festival-

- What's happening?
- What are you doing?

Thamizh knows our plan

How do you know he knows
our plan? Just don't blabber

Bro, give 2 'laddu' to this little one

'Help yourself
How can I refuse you?'

Give this little girl 'laddu'

- Thenu!!
- Have you reached?

I'm on the way but ensure
everyone evacuates

- Aren't you coming?
- Thenu, I'm scared

1st ask everyone to leave the premises

Tell me why

Even I don't know
Just ask everyone to leave

But tell me-










- Appa
- For just me, 1 individual

...they have killed so many innocent people

We haven't done anything for all those
who trusted and voted for us, Thamizh





Even now it isn't too late

Go on your bended knees,
beg forgiveness

And get the hell out of this town

I'll spare you then

Do you listen if I tell you not to keep
the gas cylinder near the stove?

Throw these eyesores
into the blazing flames


Save my child!

Please save my daughter

'Please save my baby'

'Aiyo! Oh God
Please save my baby'

Someone please save my child


Someone...please help me
Save my baby


- Kavya
- Amma!

I've verified everything about him, sir

His name is Murugan

He has no mother

Father's name Gurumurthy

He has 2 sisters

His akka's husband works in the railways

His younger sister got married just now

What does he do?

He's trying to get a break in films, sir

- Cinema?
- Yes, sir

Bring him in

You go first, sir

Good morning, sir

How are you, sir?

- Sit down
- No, it's okay, sir

Please sit

Please take a seat, sir

Tell me, sir

I heard about it
You and my daughter-

Enquire about me in my area, sir

I respect women

- What, sir?
- Yes, sir

My daughter told me

1st you were just friends and then
she was the one who compelled you

Everything I know

- But
- Sir

'As is batter so is dumpling'
Popular proverb in our area

You've raised your daughter like sweet
dipped in ghee, in the lap of luxury

You'll find it bitter to get her married to
a caramel candy that's worth just 2 bucks

I like you very much

You too, sir?

- So you approve of me as groom, sir?
- Yes

Let's finalize right now, when, where,
and what time can we fix the wedding?

My father is total junk, sir

Before this wedding
you have a task to complete

In Theni my friend Devaraj and I wanted
to set up a factory for the town to prosper

The MLA of that town was apprehensive
of my friend usurping his post

He put a spoke in our wheel

My friend's son

Looks ditto, carbon copy like you

- Like me, sir?
- Yes

- Sir, he looks ditto me
- Yes, sir

Continue your story, sir

He killed my friend and son to safeguard
his MLA post and ruin our business

- Sir, I got it
- Really?

I must live that character's role
and contest the election and win

Your factory should be built and we must
help the townsfolk, that's all, sir?

- That's all, no?
- Sir

Why is it a surprise, sir?

That's a double action script for you

If a father and his sons live in
different places and then they unite

That is Kamal Haasan in
'Aboorva Sagodharargal'

If different fathers and sons are born
in different places and they trade places

That is superstar Rajinikanth's
'Rajadhi Raja' and 'Billa'

It's as simple as this, sir
Why do you have such a shocked look?

You walk, talk, eat, sleep
Tamil cinema, sir

Sir, he's a legend!

He's my inspiration

Forget him for a moment

If I have to take up this project
I have some prior commitments, sir

I have a family, some issues
and a huge debt to repay, sir

Shall we settle for 5?

He starts sky-high
with 5 lakhs, sir?

If that isn't enough
we can close the deal for 7

7, sir?


If we put our heads together
he hikes up the amount

- What do we do, sir?
- Let's keep whispering

How are you, sir?
'Is your grandma doing good?'

- She insists on eating 'paya'
- 10, final

100 million

What about GST and tax?

'GST, Income tax
All that I'll take care'

Don't worry, okay?

Sir, it is double okay for me

Sir, then the character
I have to play, his name

I'll do all my homework and
be on my toes when I go to that town

You meet the village officer
called Venkatesh

Sir, our payment isn't inclusive
of that Venkatesh's amount, right?

10 crores
100 million

All yours

- Happy?
- Happy, sir

I'll text you my account number in
the morning Kindly transfer the amount

What did you say his name was?

His name


The next time you'll see me
only as 'Sangathamizhan'

Seems like good quality

Bro, Thamizh is not dead it seems

- What do you mean?
- He's coming into town tomorrow

'Who is this joker?'

- Thamizh?
- Thamizh anna?

How are you, bro?

I'm good and you?

Thamizh, I'll take care
of everything for you

Don't worry about anything
Sanjay sir has briefed me

Please look depressed and distressed

- Coolers, get the luggage
- 'He thinks I'm a coolie?!'


I thought you were dead

Only after seeing you
I am able to breathe normally

Without you in our lives
all of us felt orphaned

He has destroyed our town

- Shouldn't spare him
- He's back, he'll take care


How are you, anna?

Bro, we never thought
we would see you again

Everyone died in the fire accident
in the temple festival, bro

No one left for me to call as 'family'

Bro, you should keep the baby I'm carrying
in your lap and have her ears pierced

Now you are back
This is all we need, bro

- He'll do it, don't worry
- That's enough, bro


The lady holding a plate to
welcome you is your grandma

Thenmozhi's mother is the one
standing before the pillar, your aunt

The 2 brats standing below
are your sister's children

Bless you, my grandson

'Whole town fell for this ploy
But his dog knows otherwise!

'Thank God it can't talk!'

How are you, aunt?


'Go inside'


Refresh yourself
We can have lunch

'He has started living his role at once'

Thamizh, your acting skill is A1

Maintain the same grief

I'll see you later
Take care

- We'll also leave, bro
- See you

See you, uncle

Give it, bro


She's my sister

No chance in a million years

Forget all that

Where was Thamizh all along?
And what was he doing?

'He has a valid point'

Let me test him

Listen to me, tell me the truth
without pushing it under the rug

I'll come clean
Who are you in this house?

I am the servant here

Thamizh fled to Bombay from here
and stayed there for 3 months

Beat up a gang of rowdies to a pulp

He took a bus to Pakistan and
shot all the terrorists over there!

He came via the sea to Chennai and
knocked down all the politicians and thugs

- After that?
- Then he got homesick

He made a beeline back home

Is that all?

I imagined the worst
and had nightmares

Even I thought you will be
my worst nightmare!

- Hello?
- Now what?

Okay, what were you doing?

If you are a servant you stick to that
Not think of yourself as James Bond

The hero won't like it
if you do so

'What audacity!'

'Where did you pick him up?
He is 101% carbon copy, sir'

His family believed his story

People of this town fell for it

'Our party took his word for gospel'

He is on his way to meet Kuzhandhai

If Kuzhandhai also swallows his story-

Vanakkam, uncle
How are you?

- Who the hell are you?
- That isn't relevant now

When someone greets you
learn to return the gesture

Sir, I think he found out
I'm duplicate, let's scoot now

Why do you jump to conclusions?

You let your charisma flow
I'm there to support you

- Who are you?
- You guessed right, I'm not Thamizh

- Sir?
- Waitees

But I'll do twice the good
Thamizh will do for this town

I've been getting to know
the townsfolk for the past few days

What loving care, concern and gratitude

You're betraying your own people
grasping for some pipedream

Is this fair on your part?

Do you think of yourself as Thamizh?

We buy a mobile for 100000

But the same duplicate mobile
is available in the market

Don't I know the plus and minus
of the original and duplicate?

- Sir
- What, sir?

He speaks like a phone mechanic

Maybe he is one!

You're right
I am a duplicate

But a duplicate phone
heats up very fast

And head will explode

You may roam around
with 'posh and class'

But you don't know
my skill en masse, right?


Wait and watch!

'Take pictures of our town?'

'- Village photography is my project
- Why is she here?'

'She has come to snitch on you'

- When did you come?
- Hi Thamizh, hi bro

Ma, I need some time alone

To talk personally

- Thamizh go and talk
- No, it's okay

- Aunt
- 'Amma, let us go in'

Madcap! What will my aunt think of us?

You forgot your town
You even forgot your name

As if it's that tough to forget me?!

Not like that-

Don't be scared

I told everyone you are my friend
and I'm here to work on my project

I fell in love with Murugan
I'll learn to live with Thamizh

'Murugan, huh?'

Take her suitcase inside, da

Shall we talk as we go?

Who is that girl?

Says she fell in love with Murugan
and she'll learn to live with Thamizh

What is happening here?

'How do I cover up now?'

Let me explain

This girl fell in love with Murugan

- Who is Murugan?
- God

- Which place?
- Tamil Nadu

So Thamizh and Murugan are linked

Since Thamizh looks like Murugan
she says she'll live with Thamizh

'He fell for my yarn'

Is that all?

I imagined the worst and
thought I'll get nightmares!

You have an uncanny habit of
grasping like camphor catches fire!

Then what?
Can I lead a good life?

Only in this house the servant
doubles up as James Bond!

James Bond! Wash the tumbler
and make me a good cup of coffee

Will you ask me
any more questions?

'Govt Hospital

Hospital has a new look now

You should've seen the hell hole we had!

Two of you hold it

Stop it...stop it right there

Who gave you permission to unload
private equipment in a Govt hospital?

Sir, we are only trying
to help the people

Who are you to help them
without Govt authorization?

You asked the right question frankly
so much so I feel like dying of shame!

1 minute
Please come aside

- I don't get my palms greased
- Neither do I offer bribes

I don't think he gets it
Kindly explain

- Come
- He's educated, go

- Talk to them, sir
- What can I say, sir?

When you get into politics one day
this will serve as a good experience

- When did I tell you politics was my goal?
- That's the normal route for any actor

Some act and get into politics
Some step into politics and act

Some act to get into politics

We will enter politics after acting
But we won't act after we enter politics

That is 'us'
Is my logic right?

What should I do now, sir?

People are facing an issue
Go and resolve it for them

People's leader
People's spokesman

I'll come when I should, sir

- Everything is wrong
- Tamil Nadu is waiting

Everything is in place
Otherwise Thamizh won't get involved

- What have you studied?

- Do you know to read English?
- Of course

Give that to me this

These equipment should have
reached this hospital 6 months ago

- You've signed this
- Me?

Your name is Sadhasivam?
Isn't that your signature?

- Yes
- That's all

Problem solved
You can go

Are you here to create a problem?

Hello, sir, shall we
create a problem?

- 'I am free to pitch in'
- Gone case!

We have no problem
All the laws are in place

Brother-in-law, go and tell
your father-in-law, 'bilal' is all fine

- It's called 'by-law'
- You know, eh?

- So instead of correcting me
- Don't butt in

Go and straighten up
the man who sent you

He and his fancy tie!

- Acting smart with me?
- 'Earns his money playing his card right'

Superb act!


'The collector you sent
did his job perfectly'

'He isn't to blame'

But I had the hammer to nail
his coffin, we've sent it to you

'Come up with a sound idea next time'

This is just the 1st round of our game

"There are ways to protect a millionaire
who swindles playing unfair"

"But there's room in prison
for only the poverty stricken"

"Fund for spaceships flow in plenty
Do we need toilets as basic amenity?!"

"Land is available to build many a mill
Why do we need fields to till?!"

"Won't the horizon light up?"

"Can't you climb to the top?"

"If truth is your loyal voice"

"Won't victory be yours to rejoice?
Rebel to revel, my boys"

"Won't times change in our favor?
Won't the scenario turn as a makeover?"

"If united we stand in compliance
won't ruling party change hands?"

"Won't our life tide over this sadness?
Won't our gloom give way to gladness?"

"If we are the change per se
won't everything modify anyway?"

"There are ways to rescue and restore
a man who swindles in millions and more"

"But there's room in prison
for only the poverty stricken"

"Fund for spaceships flow in plenty
Do we need toilets as basic amenity?!"

"Land is available to build many a mill
Why do we need fields to till?!"

"Saw tears of joy replace drops of distress
We saw pleasure climb into hearts of kids"

"In eyes small and innocent
dreams enormous and eloquent"

"Shall we break the barriers right now
that hinder such dreams to grow?"

"Political parties old and obsolete
Create a new one with laws concrete"

"Sit up, sprint to victory
Record a new chapter in history"

"When every word begins with 'I'
the world won't resolve to rectify"

"Shout your slogan as 'we' and parade
Protest to put your point across; persuade"

"You are the rebel with a cause, comrade"

"Tomorrow is ours, never to fade"

Their behavior is atrocious, sir

It is my duty to inform you
and I have done my duty

We've come here to act for money

Being the local village officer
why are you reporting to a Bombay boss?

I am very fond
of my kith and kin

But my loyalty is only to my boss

"Won't times change in our favor?
Won't the scenario turn as a make over?"

"If united we stand in compliance
won't ruling party change hands?"

"Won't our life tide over this sadness?
Won't our gloom give way to gladness?"

"If we are the change per se
won't everything change anyway?"

"You are the rebel with a cause, comrade"

"Tomorrow is ours, for sure it won't fade"

Let them shoot in any language

I am the hero
That's for sure

1 minute
I'll call you back

Get up, why do you always
act coy in front of me?

KTV channel showcased
'Thotti Jaya' last week

I dozed off watching it

Just like in that film
I had a dream I got trapped too

My knight in shining armor
came and saved me, huh?

I lost my heart to him
that very minute!

Hero of 'Thotti Jaya' is Simbu, right?

You should feel shy and smile
like this looking at him, no?

I was playing Gopika's role in the dream

And weren't you in Simbu's shoes?

'Then shouldn't I feel shy
looking at you?'

Hey! Careful

If you have his welfare at heart...

...bring him to the venue of my choice

He should not file his nomination

Okay, sir

'Why are you taking this route?'

It's very windy, trees would
have fallen blocking the road

Mr Astrologer pro! If you had taken
the main road, we would've reached

Is he new to town?
Doesn't he know?

You drive, da

Why has a post fallen down?

No one should get down
till I tell you to

That goes for you too

Hey! Sit down

I said 'sit down'

I think something wrong
is about to happen

- Nothing of that sort
- His gut feeling is right

What do you mean?

They have planned to kill Thamizh

How do you know?

They asked me to bring him here

What the hell?!

I informed Thamizh

He knew and still came, huh?

"His foreboding blows unloading
See the sparks in his eyes exploding?"

"Tuck your tail, pipe down
He’ll swing you mid-air all around"

"His death blow; you're no more
His iron grip as never before"

"Why mess with him now?
Try and escape somehow"

"His foreboding blows unloading
See the sparks in his eyes exploding?"

"Tuck your tail, pipe down
He’ll swing you mid-air all around"

"His death blow; you're no more
His iron grip as never before"

"Why buy trouble now?
Try and escape somehow"

I have to go file my nomination

My grandma told me not to leave home
at an inauspicious hour, won't augur well

Only Yama, Lord of Death
chooses the inauspicious hour

- So shouldn't you have been careful?
- Sorry, sir

- Take them back home safe
- Okay, sir


'How is that?'

"Watch his style"

"His walk, dress, grip on parasol
Watch his style"

"Everyone trembles in fear"

"He threatens one and all in 5th gear"

"His name and fame creating history
in every (wo)man’s lips as a story"

"Residing in our hearts for eternity
Our ‘people’s treasure’ is his identity"

Hello, Kuzhandhai, true to your name
you are behaving like an imbecile kid

I underestimated you

You are slightly intelligent I must agree

I am not a villain in films
the way you seem to think

Are you wondering why
I am mentioning 'films'

I know who you are and
the aces tucked up your sleeve

From A to Z

How are you, Murugan?

Get lost, man!

If you had asked me
when I came to see you

...I would've myself told you A to Z
and given my Govt ID in your hands

Instead you think you're Poirot

Asking me 'How are you, Murugan?'

What is this act, huh?

You really have a silver tongue

Even the Smart Alec Thamizh couldn't
cope with my political moves

You're just an ordinary actor

As far as you're concerned
politics is money, power and authority

But to me it is duty,
responsibility and trust

Shall we see which wins?

Whether your authority or
the trust these people have in me?

Escort this kiddo Kuzhandhai home

We'll meet in the arena!

"Admire his style"

"His walk, dress, grip on parasol
Watch his style"

"Everyone trembles in fear"

'Cast your vote
on chair symbol'

'Let your support be
for chair symbol only'

'Whatever the circumstances
even if I lose my life'

'...I won't allow that factory
to be constructed in this soil'

'But a huge conspiracy is going on
to build that factory in our town'

'The person you look up to as God'

'...that Thamizh is planning
to destroy your lives'

'Where was Thamizh all these months?'

'What was he up to?'

'He has a girl tagging along with him'

'Do you know who she is?'

'None other than the daughter of
the factory owner wanting to destroy us'


'Last but not the least
let me assure you'

'I won't let down the trust you've placed
in me all these years, my dear people'

I shouldn't have come here

You're being hassled
only because of me

Nothing of that sort

You are not to blame

He dug his own grave

Promising to lay roads,
dig up ponds, distribute water

...will the opposition sit quiet?
He will strike back

So should this town stagnate like this?

Seeing the people's reaction
looks like we are in danger

Before they turn violent let's apologize
and leave this place silently

And where do we go?

They've come trusting us
We have to respond

What is our reply?

Life or death

Let my people decide

No need, don't go

Thamizh, I believe your girlfriend
is the daughter of that factory owner

Kuzhandhai is announcing this
all over our town

You intend marrying her it seems
and the factory will be built here

We are not suspicious of you, Thamizh

You are like a son to all of us

'How will we doubt our own child?'

How will you have the heart
to backstab us, bro?

If a factory is constructed here
because of you and we die

...we'll consider it a privilege, son

- Bro...please
- 'Listen, Thamizh'

People will tend to gossip
adding 4 + 4 as 5

'Don't take it to heart'

We wanted to assure you to be strong

And tell you we are with you
What do you say?


Your daughter's problem
is the talk of the town

Sir, if the case is not
withdrawn this time

...the stay is confirmed, sir

Tell me, Vinoth

Thamizh anna, the children in this school
who ate the midday meal have been poisoned

'I'm so scared
Come soon, bro'

Hey! Where?

Give me a hand

Give me this child, bro

- Go there
- Check what's happening

Hurry up

I heard some kids in the school
are suffering from food poisoning

'Somehow I think'

...someone must have
mixed poison in the eggs

Hey! They are innocent children-

No time to rebuke me

Pick the call on the 2nd line

- Hello
- 'Bro...!'

'Patients in the hospital are
vomiting blood, come soon, bro'

- I'm coming
- 'Come soon'

You go, I'll handle this

- Rush
- Move aside

Thamizh anna
Hurry up, bro

Come...come and see

Look at this pathetic plight

'This morning children were poisoned'

Now adults share the same fate

I hope your equipment list was
all good to take them to safety

Then they can be saved

'Pick up your 2nd line'

'Thamizh anna, come soon

Our town bus had an accident'

- Highway, bro
- I'm coming

Please bear the pain, ma

It's alright, ma

I believe there was
an accident on the highway

Hope there were no casualties

We need only 1 finger, right?

To cast a vote in my favor!

'I think this is enough for now'

Sir, just 1 question

- Your shirt is torn
- Blood stains

Listen, everyone

Thamizh has hacked
our leader's arm

- Come and help
- Move aside

I'm alright
Don't worry

I strongly condemn the atrocity meted out
to my party candidate Kuzhandhaivel

Should the opposition go to the extent
of murder fearing defeat in the election?

The police force should immediately
arrest independent candidate Thamizh

He has shed his blood and sweat
for Maruthamangalam constituency

He will recover and work for the welfare
of the people and his constituency

Bro, confirmed, we will ace this election

'The by-election in Maruthamalai
is due within the next few days'

'Mr Kuzhandhaivel, ex-MLA and
candidate of People's Progressive Party'

'...has been assaulted in his residence
by Sangathamizhan, his opposing candidate'

'Vanakkam, sir'

You've become talk of the town
in 1 day, Kuzhandhai?

It is your blessings, leader

'He acted rashly on impulse'

Thank your stars
it works in your favour

Yes, sir

What is your conflict
with ex-MLA Kuzhandhaivel?

'Why did you attempt to kill him?'

Only now I feel I'm seeing
the Thamizh I know


You have a problem
confront me directly

What did those poor people do?

Showing your bravery on
innocent children and elders

- Aren't you ashamed?
- What can I do?

Those brainless people trust you

I decided right then

I should not target you

But aim at those people

If you want to protect
the welfare of the people

...withdraw your nomination
and leave this town at once

I can slit your neck
this very minute

I will rob you of the same money, power
and authority you want to grab for yourself

And make you stand in the middle
of the road, want to see me do it?

If you call yourself a man... whatever fraudulent dealings
you are capable of

And show me you can win this election

Meet you at the arena

The media witnessed you entering and
exiting in anger from the ex-MLA's house

Are you denying it?

So you will trust me
if there is strong evidence?

For sure, sir

Move aside for the police force

Sir, please give me
your WhatsApp #?

- What for?
- I have a task to complete

99421 98999

Why say it so menacingly?

Show some respect

Take a look at your phone

'He spoke and walked away
Why are you just gawking at him?'

'He barged in and chopped my arm'

'You are being a silent witness'

'The members of the Press
standing outside didn't see this'

'Even you didn't see it?'

'Chop my arm'

'How can I do that to you, bro?'

'Do as I say'

Hey! Our leader
Ssssh! Let me talk

Tell me, sir

Yov! What have you done?

- No, sir, please hear me out
- Hey! Why should I listen to you?

Shut up and listen to me first

'Kuzhandhaivel's drama
of chopping his own arm'

'...has created a stir
in political circles'

'I dismiss Kuzhandhaivel from
the Party on a permanent basis'

'Hereafter there's no connection whatsoever
between Kuzhandhaivel and Party volunteers'

'Does that terrify you?'

'Are you petrified?'

'If you toe the line and
sign the documents'

' can step out
with your life intact'

Otherwise I can't guarantee
for your lives at all

No one is around to
crash the gates and barge in

Thamizh who is your savior
isn't alive either


You aren't aware, right?

'The man you think is Thamizh' Murugan!

He is the coolie I have planted

He's a fantastic actor

He conned the whole town
He deceived his own family

He was even able to make
all his friends believe in his duplicity

Every single person

All - are - stupid - idiots!

Are we the idiots?

Don't let your tongue run, sir

You are wrong if you think he is Murugan

He is our Thamizh anna

Careful, take her



- How are you?
- I'm good

How are you?

I'm fine

I've betrayed you so much, Thamizh

But you saved my daughter

I'll be loyal to you
till my last breath, Thamizh

Please forgive me, Thamizh

Take care of your child

You think you brought him here?

He came here through you!


'Murugan worked with
Thamizha anna in Dubai'

'His friend'

'Thamizh anna lived as Muruga
in his house in Chennai'

'His family is aware of everything'

'He visited that pub
only to meet your daughter'

'He created a deep impact
in your daughter's mind'

- I'm really proud of you, Thamizh
- Thank you, sir

Take Gopi to Bombay

No one should suspect anything

I'll handle this, Thamizh

Instead of creating a scene
call your dad now


'If he wanted to seek revenge
he could have killed you long ago'

'With the same legal loopholes
through which you entered'

'He was waiting to turn the tables on you'

'He returned as Sangathamizhan
to his hometown'

Good show

So if you are alive

...the factory won't be constructed

Where is Thamizh?

'Listen to me patiently'

'Think and then decide'

'Only if need be
lose your temper!'

I totally underestimated you

I didn't expect you to grow in stature
and stand before me so soon

You know if God has decided
to send someone as godsend

...even if you try to shut the gate
and lock it up, the lock won't work!

'Want to know why?'

Because HE holds the key!

"Hey there! Move, dude
I will rip your ears into two"

"Who came spoiling for a fight?
I'm king of blows; to wrong the right"


"Even fear will flee; terrified
with a glimpse of him, petrified"

Will you sign at least now?

Or shall I kill you and then
use your thumbprints?


Let go

I'm alright


What the hell?


You backstabbed your homeland and
your own people for some random stranger

It's a sin to even touch you

Come on

'In the given time
allotted by the Court'

'Since Sanjay Industries was
unable to justify its actions'

'And based on inquiries'

' has been proved beyond doubt
this copper factory will pollute'

'...the environment and surroundings'

'Any industrial firm should function
only for the welfare of the people'

'Bearing in mind it should not be
for the personal gain of any individual'

'...this Court has banned operations
of Sanjay Industries on a permanent basis'

'Further the Court orders the owner to
return land(s) acquired from individuals'

'What is your comment on your victory?'

This isn't an individual's victory

This is the reward
for the unity of my people

Having enforced a ban here, can you
affirm the same even in Tamil Nadu?

I am not an astrologer!

If the people in other cities and towns
are as united as my people here

...they will get only what they aspire for

I believe no one can thrust
what they don't like

Are you implying political heads
duly elected by the people

...are committing these crimes?

I feel there is no use pointing fingers
at who is right and who is wrong

Because if that is our intention

...we can do it lifelong
It doesn't give room for progress

So what are you trying to say?

I have a lot of work to catch up on
Let me attend to it, thank you


Muruga, how are you?

Thamizh, you achieved it!

I should really thank you
Thank you very much

Not only did he fool me
but tricked you too, right?

He didn't fool me

Height of loyalty!

You love me
That's true, right?

Do what your heart tells you, Thamizh

I'm there for you

You achieved your goal

- How are you, bro-in-law?
- So proud of you

Keep chatting, I'll be back

- Okay, Mr Gambler?
- Very happy indeed!


How did you accomplish all you had to
and now you stand here so silently?

Don't pull cuss words out of my mouth!

You kept projecting me as hero
and you grabbed the title!

Don't jump to conclusions
based on what happened here

You're always my hero and
I'm the comedian by your side

- Tell him
- Go to hell!

I'll stick to comedy
till the very end

Our combo is a successful one

Don't desert me, sir
