Suruli (Dhanush), a local rowdy in Madurai, is asked to leave the city for a month as he landed in a trouble after killing a businessman.
Around the same time, an NRI comes with an offer that if he works for Peter Sprott (James Cosmo), a politically affluent honcho in London, for a month, he would get plenty of money.
Suruli agrees and starts working for Peter, whose nemesis is a Tamilian gangster Sivadoss (Joju George).
Suruli quickly rises as a gangster, and also falls in love with a Tamilian singer Attila (Aishwarya Lekshmi).
Peter also wants the bill BICORE, meant against the immigrants, to be passed in the parliament, and trying to eliminate Sivadoss. Due to certain incidents, Suruli is forced fit against Peter, his boss. What happens next?
Dhanush is in his element as Suruli. He has shown a lot of swag enacting a Madhurai gangster in London. James Cosmo is suited to the role of a racist mob. Aishwarya Lekshmi is okay, but the romantic thread on Dhanush and her is not explored much. Joju George shines in a brief but important role. Director Karthik Subbaraj’s strong point has always been extracting the best from his technical crew. He stylishly shoots the regular scenes. Shreyas Krishna is perfectly tuned to his vision and has given terrific visuals. The fight scenes set in London are truly international. Santhosh Narayanan’s background score is another attraction.
