The film starts with Gouthami visiting a village and remembering the past as the film takes us to a flashback. The village would have been a victim to a local don by name Baasha whose atrocities go unchecked even by police. Most of the policemen would either accept bribe or get killed by him. Sathyaraj family relocates to this village. He questions the riots happening in the village and develops enmity with the don. How he saves the village from the ruling don and his boss forms the rest of the story. In the end, Sathyaraj kills Sarathkumar and dies while hoisting a flag.


Soundtrack was composed by Hamsalekha and lyrics written by Vaali.[2]


The film received a good response and was declared a super hit at box office. N. Krishnaswamy of The Indian Express said "knot seems to have been inspired by the Malayalam film 'Kireedam', though the treatment has been changed" [..] "There is nothing new in this line, but the rhetoric that accompanies this ploy in P. Vasu's 'Velai Kidaichuduchu' is a little different".[3]


The film was remade in Telugu as Assembly Rowdy (1991) with Mohan Babu and Divya Bharti, in Kannada as Rowdy & MLA (1991) with Ambareesh and Malashri and in Hindi as Loafer (1996) with Anil Kapoor and Juhi Chawla.
