Ramanujan is an established singer. The reality show named Crime And Music forms the backdrop of the story. The specialty of this reality show is that it features a number of convicts taking part in the competition. Krishnan is a goon who is a convict now and is also taking part in this competition. He develops a special relationship with Ramanujan, which leads to many unexpected twists in their lives.



Veeyen of Nowrunning opined that "At the end of it, Avan is a bit overwrought and wholly fails to move you. There is nothing intriguing in it that would send your pulses racing. The excitement is minimal and so is its emotional depth". [3]
