Sundararajan (siva) is all set to go to Saudi and he reaches Chennai from Coimbatore. He is received by the vet doctor Marthandam (charan) who is soon to marry Sundararajan's sister. However, the travel agent reveals that liquor and enjoying women are strictly not allowed in Saudi. So, Sundara and Marthandam decide to have a quarter before catching the flight. From there starts Sundara's hunt in the night. Unfortunately, it is a dry day due to elections and Sundara gets details about few locations where he might get the quarter bottle. In this process, he meets Saro (lekha) a girl who runs away from home, a father-son duo (john Vijay) who run a gambling center, a politician and even a brothel house. What happens from there forms the rest of the story.
The director has come up with an unusual storyline and they failed to appeal with narrative while presentation was okay. The dialogues were average, the script was confusing, the screenplay was complicated. The background score was stale and no songs. Cinematography was the saving grace. Editing was adequate. Costumes didn't have much to do while the art department was creative. Siva tried his best to infuse life into his character but in vain, Charan was regular, Lekha looked cute and did her bit as required. John Vijay was entertaining. The cameo by Arya was a relief. Abhinayasree was good.
It is always appreciable to see variety cinema in the Kollywood circuit but it should not be an extent to test the patience of the audience or confuse them. Something similar happened in this movie and while the concept was unconventional, it required a tight script and enough entertainment to make things appealing. With stale comedy and hardly any life in the characters, the film finds it hard to score at the box office. This will be a sure shot dud.
