Plot

The film is about Vallavan (T. R. Silambarasan), a happy-go-lucky college student with a set of friends, among who, Suji (Sandhya) is his best friend and supporter. He one day meets Swapna (Nayantara) and immediataly falls in love with her. When he gets to know, that Swapna is a teacher who is three years older than him, he decides to woo her by turning into Pallan, an ugly duckling with buck tooth and glasses. Pallan makes Swapna (Nayanthara) fall in love with him for his heart, even though he is ugly. in the middle nayanthara and simbu have a sexual intercourse

Soon, after a couple of well-executed dramas, he makes Swapna tell him “I love you.” But when Swapna comes to know that Vallan is younger than her (from one of Vallan's enemies in school) and that too a student, she dumps him and decides to marry another guy. Meanwhile a sequence of events take place, much to the chagrin of Vallavan who is highly insulted by them.

As Vallavan walks in the streets wondering how things could get so messy, his school days come back to haunt him. Geetha (Reema Sen) his first girlfriend at school, returns for payback time. She tells him that she was the spoilsport for the current mess in his life. Her obsessive love.

After a climax displaying histrionics, film fast-forwards to 3 years later. Geetha is released from a mental asylum. The moment she steps out, she lets go of her and exhibits her fiery psychotic expression. Vallavan is waiting for her and they communicate telepathically saying that he will betray her.

The music was scored by noted musician and Silambarasan's friend, Yuvan Shankar Raja, coming together again after churning out the successful album of Manmadhan (2004). The soundtrack was released on 1 June 2006 and features 9 tracks, including 7 songs and two Instrumental pieces. As it was the case in Manmadhan, a second Soundtrack was released afterwards with bit songs that feature in the film but not on the first soundtrack along with pieces from the film score. The lyrics were penned by 'Kavignar' Vaali, Thamarai, film director Perarasu and T. R. Silambarasan himself. Karunakaran wrote the lyrics of the bit song "Kadhal Vandhale", released in the second edition.

Yuvan Shankar Raja won accolades for his musical score and his song, whereas especially the songs "Loosu Penne" and "Yammaadi Aathaadi" were chartbuster, topping the charts for the following weeks and the latter even becoming the anthem of the season.[1][2] His film score, too, was lauded, hailed as the film's highlight and "backbone of the film", while he himself was hailed as the film's "real hero".[3]

Controversy

Reema Sen has recently criticized Silambarasan for favouring Nayantara during film shootings. She has also revealed that the project Vallavan had stopped her from signing other projects. It was during the shooting of this film that Nayantara and Simbu got engaged to each other and they even went as far as doing a lip - lock scene in the movie. However, a few months after the release of this movie, Nayantara dumped Simbu and the wedding got cancelled. Furious, it is said that Simbu began to follow her wherever she went and even followed her to her hotel room. It was at this point that she had had enough and asked the hotel security guards to throw out Simbu from the hotel. Simbu later made a statement saying that he was going to do a film based on their love life.
