PlotEdit

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 named Baasha (Anandaraj) whose atrocities go unchecked even by police. Most of the policemen would either accept bribes or get killed by him. Palanisamy's (Sathyaraj) family relocates to this village. He questions the riots happening in the village and develops enmity with Baasha. How Palanisamy saves the village from the Baasha and his boss forms the rest of the story. In the end, Sathyaraj kills Purushothaman (R. Sarathkumar) and dies while hoisting a flag.

ReceptionEdit

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]
