A deformed hunchback kidnaps a bride on the day of her marriage and holds her hostage while his connection to her and his targets is revealed in a series of flashbacks that unfold as he starts seeking revenge.
The weight transformations Vikram had to endure for this film are considered extreme. From his usual 95 kgs, Vikram had to go down to his all-time lowest 40 kgs, risking his health and life at this point for the hunchback portions which consisted of about half of the film's run-time. After that, he had to quickly put on thrice that weight and reached 120 kgs, his all-time heaviest, for the "Ennodu Nee Irunthaal" song where he comes as a werewolf. For this role, director Shankar as well as many other technicians in the making video of the film released during the audio launch said that Vikram had to isolate himself from his family and society in general for almost a year due to these drastic transformations.
Worse than that!
The lead villain is earlier against the male model character for eyeing the lead female. Then later in the film, the model turns against the lead male as he loses the lead female to him. For the same reason, the lead villain joins hands with the model without any sort of hatred depicted as earlier.
The track Ennodu Nee Irundhal (Reprise version) was played in the background during the credits and the screen showed a positive climax of the movie.
The UK release was cut, the distributor chose to remove moments of strong violence in order to obtain a 12A classification. An uncut 15 classification was available.
