Inspired from the ballads on Iravikuttipillai, a warrior of Venad and the warriors hailing from the south is a movie directed by S.Mahesh. Kaaliyan is one of the greatest warriors, who even if he faces the army ten to hundred or one to none, he will get what he pursues for. History forgot him..the ballads sing of him. He took on the mightiest with the power of one..the power of self. For honor, teacher and country.
