Storyline

Dayalan (Samuthirakani) joins a government school in a village as teacher. The pitiable condition of education in such government schools worries him. In the school, the teachers and students are like two rail tracks never meeting eye-to-eye. It bothers him more. The materialistic lives of the teachers play spoilsport on the children's motivation to learn. Dayalan expresses his desire to set things right. As expected, he faces the wrath of teachers and the students too. He introduces novel methods, gives confidence to students and motivates them to evince keen interest in education. But he faces a huge hurdle in the form of assistant headmaster Singam Perumal (Thambi Ramaiah). Written by Bala

This movie is about a meticulous teacher who is transferred to one of the Indian Government School. He encourages the students in the school and gets the best out of students. He finds the problems that exists in the other teachers and go against them. He gets support from principal and formulates new stricter rules for teachers. This aggravates other teachers to go against him even more. He also heads cultural and sport events and helps the school get a good recognition and confidence to the principal and students. He faces pressure from other teachers and the rest of the movie is how he handles them. Overall it's a very good movie with extremely good screenplay, that keeps the viewers completely occupied throughout the movie.
