There has been a lot of questions over the content of the film, but the makers insist on the fact that it will be a complete family entertainer, which deals with relationship and rapport between a father-in-law and son-in-law.

Moreover, the trailer has confirmed that the film will have elements of romance highlighted by remarkable performances of Lakshmi Menon and Karthi.

Strong Screenplay and Direction

The major highlight of the movie is said to be its strong screenplay. The film is shot in highly engaging manner by Muthaiah, known for his previous project, "Kutti Puli". Moreover, reports are that the director has added some incidents in his life to add to the realistic feel of the movie.

Besides Karthi, the director has ensured that the film has some of the best talents to portray his characters with actors like Lakshmi Menon, Rajkiran, Super Subbarayan, Kovai Sarala, IM Vijayan, Karunas, Thambi Ramaiah and G Gnanasambandam.
