Karuppan (Vijay Sethupathi) lives in a village and he is being viewed as a rogue and tippler. At the same time, he is known for his great love towards his mother (Renuka), who is unwell.
In the village, there is an influential man Maayi (Pasupathi), who agrees to marry his sister Anbu (Tanya) off too Karuppan, if the latter manages to tame his bull.
Karuppan, who is good at jallikattu, accepts the challenge and tames the bull of Maayi. But this does not go well with Kathir (Bobby Simha), the brother-in-law of Maayi.
Kathir has an eye on Anbu and in a bid to achieve his dream, he starts stirring the pot to permanently divide the couple Karuppan and Anbu with his evil plans.
But that is not so easy as the relationship between Karuppan-Anbu relationship is strong. However, Kathir too is no easy man and is ready to go to any extent.
After Rummy, Pannayarum Padminiyum and Dharmadurai, Vijay Sethupathi is here in another rural tale. But the film is a mass masala entertainer like Sethupathi and Rekka.
Director Panneerselvam (of Renigunta fame) has played to the gallery and has loaded the films with all the ingredients that would please the mass audience.
And Vijay Sethupathi, as usual, shoulders the entire burden and makes the film impressive with his presence and performance. Tanya is superb and the chemistry between VS and her is a highlight.
Bobby Simha is good as villain, while Pasupathy is solid in character role. And Singam Puli is here to make us laugh after a break. D Imman’s background score is another highlight.
Despite some cliches and familiar scenes, Panneerselvam keeps the momentum going forward and ensures that the scenes aren’t boring. Thus, Karuppan is a winner in the box-office.
