An unsuccessful comedy loosely inspired by George Roy Hill’s Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) telling of two petty village thieves, Azhagu (Prashant) and Kadir (Anand), who rescue Rajathi (Heera) from suicide and fall in love with her, as she does with them. On a train, the two thieves steal a woman’s handbag which contains a computer card giving access to a case of freshly printed banknotes which also gets stolen. The petty thieves become involved in endless chases while their triangular love story remains unresolved. Made as a big-budget spectacular, the film consciously attempts to move out of the terrain of regional politics as seen in the director’s better known, and notorious, hits Roja (1992) and Bombay (1995).
