This Movie tells the story of national-level carrom player Anbu (Dhanush). It revolves around how he embroiled in a turf war with gangsters in North Chennai. The Movie tells about gangsters’ rise, their political connections, and their downfall. Some incidents are real although it doesn’t focus on one particular person. How Dhanush’s life changes after falling prey to the trap set by a mafia gang forms the crux of the story.


This Movie is an original story of gangsters in North Madras and stays true to its genre. This movie has a lot of raw moments, the detailing of these moments in the screenplay makes it a cult gangster film. The politics that the movie tells is relatable and creates an impact. As expected, this movie walks you through the life of North Chennai people with so much authenticity. Director Vetrimaaran has penned the story which is close to reality and not gets influenced by the ‘mass’ factors.

Dhanush’s Performance

Hero Dhanush, in a role that has shades of the characters he played in Pudhupettai and Aadukalam, gets some whistle-worthy masala moments, but as he did with Polladhavan, Director makes them organic and in character rather than give us empty heroism.

The director ensures that the other characters have their moments. Aishwarya Rajesh did make the  Padma a lovable character despite the cuss words that pepper her lines, while Andrea, who decidedly looks like she doesn’t belong in this setting, manages to make Chandra a strong character.

Ameer’s Rajan appears for only a brief time, but he turns out to be the film’s moral center and beating heart. The Movie’s timeline is superbly set with the political backdrop of the times of MGR and Rajiv Gandhi’s deaths. The art direction, costume and hair, and makeup departments work in tandem to take us to the various time frames.

Santhosh Narayanan silently steps up with gritty BGM, truly Vada Chennai unspoken hero. Cinematographer Velraj has managed to capture the essence of North Madras with its true soul, with 70% of the film taken at night the camera work is outstanding.

So, you can watch it for the true gutsy performances of the lead characters and well-researched lifestyle of gangster life in North Madras over the last two decades.


  • Dhanush Realistic Performance is the main highlight of the movie
  • Vetrimaaran’s Direction
  • Santhosh Narayanan’s Background Music is the main pillar of the movie
  • Velraj’s Cinematography


  • The drawback is could be understanding the premise comfortably. This Dhanush’s Political Drama has many parts which connect multiple characters, following the language might pose a minor issue.
  • At a few moments, the story could come off as predictable as we have seen similar circumstances before.
