The film opens with the hero Veera (Ezhil Durai) who goes missing. His mom (Rama) and sister return home only to find the house being locked and no response from Veera despite banging the door. When they break open and go inside they are shocked. A suggestive scene where Veera might have made a suicide attempt by hanging from the ceiling fan, a gun missing and his mobile left behind add to their worries. Now, along with Veera’s friends, the search is on.

The story cuts into several flashbacks where we are told the romance of Veera and Anushka (Madhumila) and their breakup. Veera falls in love with his sister’s friend Anushka, spoilt daughter of a big shot Dhamodharan (Mime Gopi) and he reveals it when he meets her at a college function. Initially, she also reciprocates. Veera is yet to find a job for himself and he is dependent on his lawyer dad (Ajay Ratnam) for everything. But Anu is not keen on getting into relationship with Veera. And with wrong advice from friends, she starts neglecting Veera and hops to another guy from the college.

 

However, Veera doesn't want to give-up and tries to patch up the relationship. Unfortunately his antics do not work. Meanwhile, there’s this girl Sona (Abhinaya) who is madly in love with Veera. The rest is how Veera wants to teach a lesson to Anu before leaving her for good.

With his looks supporting his character graph, Ezhil Durai as an actor manages to grab your attention and he reminds you of Dinesh in Attakatthi. He also emerges successfully to some extent as a director. Madhumila looks a bit matured but she fits the bill. Abhinaya does a neat job. The writing is simple and Ezhil approaches all aspects in earnest. There’s inconsistency in presentation and since most of the artistes are newbies, it lacks the fizz - a regular ingredient of new time writers. Cinematography by Manish is good and music by Raj Bharath is passable.
