So they visit Mookuthi Amman Temple near Nagercoil and there God appears before them and asks RJ Balaji help to make her temple famous. The hurdles he faces and the finding of his father forms the crux of the story.
What a touching movie. I swear I watched this movie to have a good laugh, and it is worth it. Some scenes the sentimental value of their family makes you shed a tear but the next moment the pace becomes funny and it makes you forget the sadness. The movie kickstarts only after Nayanathara as Mookuthi Amman appears before RJ Balaji. The ways he uses to make temple famous is the superstitious beliefs that people have so long kept in their minds. This movie also makes us think how people are using God name for using their business. The entry of antagonist Ajay Gosh as Bhagavathi Baba proves that we are still blinded by faith of God in serving some people who act as a messenger of God. The scene where Urvashi comes and beg her husband who happens to be a faithful devotee of Bhagavathi Baba, in brings you to tears. Even after deserting the family, she believes that here husband will come back to her and ready to accept him. It is a tear jerker.
Please watch this movie if you need a good feel effect.
