The movie is about a young romantic couple who are in a long-distance relationship. The hero and the heroine live in Mumbai and Tamil Nadu.

The heroine’s older brother is also a part of this team. They also have to face obstacles standing in the way of their love in the form of the heroine’s family. Will the overcome their obstacles and live happily ever after?
The story has no comic elements even though it is produced under the genre of Romantic-Comedy. The film uses crude language, chaotic chasing, and hitting scenes as laughable events. These tactics do not garner laughs, but they do ensure that the audience realizes how foolish the movie is. The storyline is so used that you wouldn’t even realize that this is a new movie. The script is average with very weak directorial venture by Pavithran. He has directed a lot of good films, so it comes as a shock to the audience when something as feeble as this movie comes from him. The cinematography done by Manikanandan is subpar. Pavithran’s son has composed the songs for this movie. The dances are spontaneous, and not very inclusive of the scenes. The background score is negligent. Overall the film makes very mediocre attempts to attract the movie goers.
The acting by the characters looks forced. The actors are all newcomers; hence good acting can't be expected. Their dialogues make their stuffy overdramatic acting even more highlighted. The newcomers have a lot to improve on if they want to survive in the industry.
1, Run, chase and action sequences.
What’s not there?
1. The script is not that strong.
2. Bad direction.
If you don’t watch the film, you won’t lose anything.
