Siva (Sasi Kumar) is a movie lover in Coimbatore who leases a single screen theater out of passion. However, the theater is loss making and he is in financial trouble. Siva falls in love with Gayathri (Lavanya Tripathi) but her parents want Siva to give up his passion towards theater business as it makes no money for which Siva refuses and gives up his love. Siva gets a notice from commercial tax department to pay his due of Rs.5 lakhs else the theater would be sealed. Siva decides to get help from his childhood friend Madan Kumar (Naveen Chandra) who is a leading film director in Telugu film industry.

Siva reaches Chennai with the hope of meeting Madan but all his efforts go in vain. One day, Siva accidentally meets a producer JP (Jayaprakash), introduces himself as an associate of Madan and narrates a story which impresses JP. Siva is now offered a chance to direct a movie and JP hands over Rs.5 lakhs as advance. However, Siva is scared as he has no clue about direction. Knowing this, Madan gets furious and meets Siva but he could not identify Siva. Siva informs that he is a big fan of Madan.

JP finds out that Siva is not an associate of Madan and feels skeptical of him directing a movie. JP requests Siva to hand over the story rights to him, so that he can make the movie with another director for which Siva refuses. Siva comes to know that JP has actually planned to make the movie with Madan who is now debuting in tamil film industry. Siva feels happy and gives the story rights to JP.

Also, Madan meets Gayathri and falls in love with her. He proposes a wedding arrangement for which Gayathri’s parents agree. Although Gayathri is not interested, she agrees for the wedding as Siva does not reciprocate her love. Madan reaches Coimbatore for wedding and suddenly remembers about his childhood friend Siva. He goes to Siva’s house to invite him and gets shocked seeing the photograph of Siva and understands all the truth. Nandhu (Santhanam) informs the sacrifices made by Siva for the welfare of Madan including his love towards Gayathri.

Madan feels bad that he never recognized Siva but feels proud that Siva kept following Madan’s growth over these years. He meets Siva and unites him with Gayathri.



Lavanya Tripathi played the female lead.[3] She said "Santhanam is also part of the cast; so it won’t be a serious film like the previous Sasikumar starrers".[4] Soori was also part of the cast, who was earlier wrongly reported to have replaced Santhanam in the film.[5] It was reported that Yuvan Shankar Raja would compose the music,[1][6][7] but Devi Sri Prasad was signed as the music director. Naveen Chandra stated that he played the second lead as the friend of Sasikumar in the film.[8]

The shooting happened mostly in Coimbatore.[2][5] It also took place at Bharathiar University in April 2013.[1] In October, the team consisting of director Socrates, M. Sasikumar, Lavanya, choreographer Raju Sundaram along with a 40-member crew flew to Venice and other parts of Italy and Switzerland to shoot a couple of songs, which is a first time for a Sasikumar film to be shot outside India.[9] Padmapriya danced for a hot item song in the film.[10]


The satellite rights of the movie were sold to Sun TV.[11]

Critical receptionEdit

Baradwaj Rangan wrote, "With someone else at its centre, we might have said that Bramman is just about watchable, but with Sasikumar, we begin to wonder if Subramaniyapuram was a one-off".[12] Behindwoods gave the film 2 stars out of 5 and wrote: "Bramman turns out to be a good tale by Socrates, that might have lacked a little vigour in the screenplay".[13] Sify called Bramman a "passable commercial entertainer with all essential ingredients that will keep the pot boiling".[14]
