The title of the film is either a reference to the Rajinikanth song from Mullum Malarum (a famous Ilaiyaraaja hit) or it’s a statement: Whether one person or the other who rules us, nothing is going to change. The film is about three main characters: Kunnimuthu (Mithun Manickam), his wife Veerayi (Ramya Pandian) and a journalist Narmadha (Vani Bhojan). It’s set up with a scene where Kunnimuthu comes rushing to a village inspector to report his missing bulls. But there are people from the MLA’s office who need to be looked at first — the MLA’s dog is missing. Of course, the inspector pays attention to the MLA’s men and dismisses Kunnimuthu. You know the kind of melodramatic zone we’re in right away.
