The main theme of the film as reported earlier
is said to be based on an English movie, Derailed.
Let's take a quick look at the story of the movie.
The story is about an executive from a multi national
company, whose financial status is very strong,
married with a beautiful wife, and has a 6 years
His daughter suffers from a perennial diabetic
problem with insulin injections to be administered
everyday. Due to this, major portion of his earnings
goes for the medical treatment, and hospitalization
of the child.
And moreover, the intimate relationship between
the husband and wife starts to deteriorate due
to their worry and concern for their child. At
this juncture, another woman enters into the life
of the hero. What starts as a simple offer in
buying his rail ticket, blossoms into an illicit
relationship. A clandestine meet in a hotel room
takes a twist when an unknown man barges in, robs
them and rapes her.
Later on, the same man starts visiting his home
and starts blackmailing him every week and takes
money from him without the knowledge of his wife
He looses all his money, including the savings
that he had made for his one and only daughters'
medical treatment. After loosing everything, his
wife, comes to know the extramarital relationship
of her husband, eventually she decides to go and
live separately along with her daughter.
At this sad state of affairs, the hero, comes
to know a mind blowing truth accidentally that
the criminal, who is ransacking money from him,
is none other than the illicit lover's husband,
and both of them plotted together and extracted
the money from him.
The climax of the story is how the hero recovers
money from the kidnappers, and gives it to the
hospitalization expenses of his beloved daughter.
For Pachaikili Muthucharam, Sarathkumar plays
the lead role as the hero, Mumbai model Andrea
acts as his wife; the ailing daughter is replaced
by a son. Jyothika's role is that of the woman
who entices Sarathkumar to enter into an extra
marital affair. Milind Suman acts as the kidnapper,
who plots along with his wife Jyothika against
Sarathkumar and extracts money from him.
Now what has to be seen is how much truth is there
in the rumors that Gautham's version is inspired
by Derailed. Will Jyothika still remain the negative
role in story? Will Tamil movie goers accept her
as a villain?
