This is the first full spoof movie in Tamil cinema ( at least to my knowledge). The movie revolves around Shiva (Shiva) a local boy who is raised by his grandmother.He wants to be big in life but he falls in love with Priya (Disha Pandey) who is the daughter of a big millionaire in the city. Meanwhile a big don 'D' is terrorizing the city. Then one by one 'D's top henchmen were being killed by an unknown person.Meanwhile (again) Shiva goes to 'Cinemapatti' (which is his birth place) to search and find his parents. And then suddenly they reveal Shiva's true identity.
This film made me laugh like a hyena. OK that wasn't the best example but this movie will sure make you have a smile on your face. The best part of the movie comes when Shiva and his three friends are together. You will never guess who 'D' is and you will be shocked when you find out. So worth a watch.
If you had followed all the movies which are spoofed in this you would love it.
