But Varupuli has a past and his real name is Chinna. For the death of a youth (Thogaimayan) from neighbouring village, the King had in fact ordered one youth to be given as offering to the Almighty and Chinna was the choice. Sequence of events lead to Chinna escaping from the offering only to find out the mystery behind Thogaimayan's death. But that was too late as too many things happened in his village by then. Now he goes on the hiding. Cut to present, Chinna is taken to be offered to God. What happens then forms the climax.

18th Century

South Tamil Nadu.

God Karuppa


One who is sleepy

should not guard a place.

One who sneezes

should not set out to steal.

Didn't realize, Kombudhi.

Names only within our village.

When we go to steal

everyone is 'Karuppa'

lf you hear our guarding stick's stories,

even a tiger will think twice to pounce!

Under Muthu Veeran's protection

even a single pearl won't go amiss!

Not even a tamarind seed!

You won't lose even a tamarind seed?!

Just wait and watch

Your entire house will be stolen!

Do you want your fortune told?

Do you want your future shown?

Do you want your future shown?

Do you want your fortune told?

Do you want your fortune told?

Do you want your future shown?

Hey! Fortune teller.

- My lady is calling you.

- I'm coming.

Oracle Goddess Jakkamma

Goddess Badrakali

Prophesy prosperity

Foretell favorable news

Sir, do you want your future told?

- No, no... thank you.

Prophesy plenty

Augur auspicious events

Our martyr's stick has

permitted us... let's go in.

Just because I'm blind

don't think you can fool me.

Goddess Bommakka

Goddess Veera Chinnamma

Declare thy divine forecast

for our lady with thy good heart

Owl's shadow is a bad omen

Means impending death.

What are you saying?

N which direction is God

placed inside this house?

South west corner.

Before breaking open the lock

... check if keys are beneath

the owner's pillow

There's a blind lady there,

forever pounding betel leaf.

Where did this cat come from?

Stupid cat! Spoil my sleep.

Chop it's legs off!

I have no teeth to chew

No cloth to cover my body too

No strength left in me to carry on

No kith nor kin to shower affection

Is she pounding betel leaf

or knocking our house down?

Can't you hear the racket

that darn old lady is making?

Stupid female! You can't sleep

if you don't malign my mother!

- She falls like a beam.

- He's broken my hip!

And she curses my mother!


Open the door for us,

God Karuppa.

Only 2 or 3 ornaments are worth it

Rest of them have copper content

I can give 2 kOttai


I'll send it over

Wait outside our village.

We waited so long

and staked our lives for this.

The entire village will be

waiting for our loot.

How can 2 kOttai be enough?

What can I do?

Cake is tasty

according to its ingredients.

You bring valuables

my price will be priceless!

If I pay you more than this

I'll have to steal like you.

One of these days we should

raid his house to even our account.

Let it go.

Pidari, none of our men have returned?


Kombudhi's gang is back.

Come my children Let's feast.

- Where did you go to steal?

- West.

God Karuppaa.


Grand mother

Did you see my wife?

Who knows where she is?

Why are you auctioning her?

Why are you in a tearing hurry?

- Oh! Yes, I am.

- Everyone's looking.

- Let go.

- Oh my hand.

You and your ill-timed sneeze!

Those who have got

their share, move over.

God! Take care of Your children

as long as this village exists.

Make sure 1 share per head.

Fry some liver

for your invalid husband.

- Sadaichi... Vembu...

- Father!

- Good to see you.

- Hey! Chellathayi.

Vembu dear!

Why is he sulking?

You didn't take him to loot

That's why he's upset.

Are you angry

I didn't take you?

So what?

I'll take you next time.

My precious children.

Did Jakkama's predictions

come true, brother?

Not one word was wrong

How do you do it?

Even if the oracle is Goddess Jakkamma

Oratorical speaker is Chimmiti, right?

Don't brag too much

Go and collect our share.

You haven't done

anything new!

Hey! Lady from Kedaiyur

Why are you so green with jealousy?

What happened?

What happened to Viruman?

Guards of Kodangipatti

hacked him during the theft.

What happened?

There's life in his eyes

He'll survive.

Veerayi, stop lamenting

Your husband is alive.

Run... Vembu, run.

Don't fall.


Stop hitting.


Stop it.

Don't kill my man.

We are here to enquire

and you are driving us out?!

For past 300 years we've stood

in the forefront in our Madurai cavalry.

Did you think you can get away

stealing our Queen's necklace?

Be it theft, enquiry or retrieval

it should be outside our village.

Why did you come

into our habitat?

You'll steal our Queen's necklace

and should we treat you like royalty?

Our people have not

stepped into your domain.

Go ask elsewhere.

So you didn't steal?

Show them the informant.

Tell them your story

I don't know who but a man

from your village asked me for a clue.

If you lie, I'll slit your throat.

Must be from

some other place eastward.

He said Vembur

That's why I gave a royal clue!

He came all by himself.

We never go alone.

We always go in a group.

We were the ones who chased him!

Don't we know he was single?!

We always own up to our crime

We'd either return or get compensated.

What do we lose?

We are not cowards.

Are you implying that someone used

your village name and stole?

I didn't. You did.

If what you say is true, we won't

sleep without catching the thief.

If we catch the rogue

we'll return your stolen ornament.

If you do, you should

surrender that fellow to us.

What do we get

by surrendering the thief to you?

We'll protect your fort free of cost.

What do we get in return

for retrieving your royal jewelry?

100 kOttai (GRAIN MEASURE) of paddy.

We'll give you 100 kOttai paddy
