Bharath (Arulnithi), a cab driver, is in love with Susheela (Mahima Nambiar), a nurse. She meets with some trouble one day and gets rescued by Ganesh (Ajmal).
Slowly she realises that Ganesh is a womaniser, and moreover, a gang led by him is into blackmailing many for money, after knowing their personal secrets.
With Susheela’s friend Rupali (Chay Singh) too falling prey to Ganesh, Susheela complains about him to Bharath, who goes to Ganesh’s house on a rainy night to teach a lesson to him.
In the meantime, industrialists Murugesan (Anandraj) and Narein (Aadukalam Narein) too are there to bump off Ganesh, as they too are affected by him.
But to their shock, they find Maaya (Suja Varunee), a member of Ganesh’s team is murdered at his residence. While they run to save themselves, there is Vyjayanthi (Lakshmy Ramakrishnan), a crime novelist, who wants to pen this as her 50th work.
At just two hours, Iravukku Aayiram Kangal directed by journalist turned filmmaker Mu Maran (this is his directorial debut) impresses us a lot, thanks to its intriguing and interesting manner.
Being a writer, he has emphasised a unique storytelling method in IAK. Non-linear storytelling is one of the highlights in this film, and the thing is, there is no confusion despite there being too many knots.
Interestingly, all the characters in the film are named after the famous characters in detective novels penned by Sujatha, Subha and Pattukottai Prabhakar.
Arulnithi, who is choosy about scripts, has proved himself once again in this flick. Mahima, Anandraj and Naren have come up with outstanding performance, while others are apt in their respective roles.
With too little flaws which can easily be overlooked, Iravukku Aayiram Kangal is a gripping tale which makes us glued to the seat from the beginning till the end.
