Neha Hinge and Shubra Aiyappa are playing the female leads in "Sagaptham", which has Ranjith, Devayani, Bose Venkat, Suresh, Thalaivasal Vijay, Powerstar Srinivasan and others in the cast.

Saga (Shanmuga Pandian) saves Devayani from being harassed by money lender played by Bose Venkat. Her husband has gone missing in Malaysia. Now, the hero along with his friend Jagan leaves to the foreign country to find her husband.

When they land in Malaysia, they are exposed to a crime world and the issue is now bigger than just saving her husband! Well, our nation is in threat and how the hero fights for our people forms the crux of the storyline.

"Sagaptham has opened to negative reviews from the netizens.The storyline and the performance are not up to the mark. Below, we bring you the Tweet response of the audience:

#Sagaptham: Vijaykanth's son debuts with a very poor film, should have given himself for a mature script if he has come to stay.

Half way through #Sagaptham. A tried and tested, formulaic masala film. Second half shifts to Malaysia. Power Star & Jegan rock.
#Sagaptham - A formulaic masala ride!
