Spoilers ahead…


Eeswaran is set in a village in Dindigul where Periyasamy (Bharathiraja) is a patriarch. A tragedy strikes him at a very young age and over time his children move to Chennai. They’re all all fighting each other due to money issues. What brings Periyasamy’s four children back to their village is the pandemic. So, you could call Eeswaran a historically important film, in a way. It’s the first Tamil masala film that has the pandemic as a part of the plot. But that doesn’t mean that the rest of the film has anything new to offer.
