Right now, the shoot of this film is happening in the backdrops of Prasad Studios with a huge set work of slum region being raised up there. In order to give an original feel to the slum effect, the makers have thrown up original wastes and drainage elements into the shooting spot. The actors in spite of going through this bad odour haven’t complained upon this and are professionally inclined to canning their portions.

The film revolves around Sivakarthikeyan, who plays a slum dweller and later joins as a marketing executive in a leading company. He comes across huge social issues that is hampering the peaceful lives of innocent people and starts out to fight against it.
