Durai – a common man addressed as Raja suffers with memory loss. He tries hard to know his identity by inquiring everyone around him including police officers. Raja works as a server in a small eatery owned by Vivek. His dreams are haunted by incomplete images of people he fails to recognize. In a wedding celebration he meets Keerath, a journalist instantly falling in love. Keerath hides a secret from Raja i.e. she was also a part of his past.
Suddenly people from his past discover him. Following events unfold his past life and gradually he realizes that his present position is due to political rivalry. Durai lives a contented peasant life with his beautiful wife and a 6year old son. But soon his peaceful life is disturbed by upcoming events.
Durai volunteers in a political party working hard for the success of the party. He is treated like a son by the leader of the political party. The leader plans to introduce Durai as his political heir and one night he reveal his desire to Durai. Unfortunately the leader pass away that night and a series of regrettable events lead by a bad force end up in Durai becoming Raja. He is not able to uncover the antagonist behind all his lost and sufferings.
Exposing the bad guy behind his life trauma and unearthing the truth to the society lays the climax.
Action king has done a great job especially when he flaunts his flat abdomen. Climax is where his ultimate action sizzles. Vivek’s Comedy is pedestrian. Though Kajala appears on screen only a short span she has done her part neatly. Keerath comes as the hero’s arm candy with less scope for performance. Debutant Suma’s performance is short and suave.
Music by Imman is energetic especially “Adi Aathi Aathi”. ‘Aayiram Aayiram ‘by SPB is mesmerizing making him the best eternal voice.Appropriate picturisation addmmettles to this song. “Unnai mathiri” is also melodious in the voice of Udithnarayanan and Shreya goshal.
