The lesson about human brain is very

important to every medical student.

Our brain co-ordinates

every action we indulge in.

Our brain judges

an individual...

...and categorizes him as to

whether he is intelligent or a crook.

It's the king of human parts.

The characteristics of human brain

are amazing, aren't they?

Absolutely, it's very amazing.

We need to begin our project

on human brain within a week.

Shall we do a project on

an interesting patient?

Hey, see this one!

Hey, it's interesting, isn't it?

- Yes!

Who suggested the idea of taking

up this case for your project?

I suggested this idea, Sir!

- Did you read the file thoroughly?

It's not only a peculiar case,

it is also a legal issue.

Please don't take up

this case for your project.

But it's an interesting case.

- Do as I say!

Else I may have to

inform your parents.

Alright, we will do

as you say...

...but please tell us

about the case in detail.

As medical students, let us

learn more about it. - Okay!

The patient's name

is Sanjay Ramasamy.

He was attacked by someone,

with an iron rod!

As a result he is suffering

from a loss of memory.

His brain has lost

the memory power.

This disease is termed as

Short Term Memory Loss.

He cannot retain anything in his

memory for more than 15 minutes.

If he speaks to someone

for more than 15 minutes...

...he forgets the beginning

of the conversation.

What about his friends

and acquaintances?

He forgets them within

a span of fifteen minutes.

He can remember only the

incident and the people he saw...

...during the course

of the incident.

Satisfying hunger pangs,

the language he used to speak...

...the vehicle he used to drive,

are few actions...

...that have been registered

in his sub-conscious mind.

Hence, they are not

a problem for him.

In fact, he is left handed and

he continues to be so.

What does he do when he wants

to go out or buy something?

Just as children memorize

their activities...

...this patient adopts

similar methods.

They need to write down their

itinary and put it into action.

I wonder what the poor soul,

who is struggling... lead a normal life,

is upto at present.

Yes Sir! - Who was the first

to inform? - The watchman, Sir!

Hey, move!

He died just the way

Sethuraman died!

This is the second murder

within a span of one week.

I shall arrest him

within 24 hours!

Trace the culprit before the

police succeed in tracing him.

Take me to this lane!

Besent Nagar, 16th Cross Street.

This is your destination, Sir!

Go straight and turn right!

Go to Heritage Apartment.

This is the apartment

you were referring to.

Who lives here, Sir?

- I live here!

Excuse me, I live in this flat,

I have a problem...

I'm aware of your problem.

You suffer from loss of memory.

After all, I've been supplying you

lunch for the last one year.

Now, you want me to

guide you to the lift, right?

Go straight and take a turn

after the third block.

It departed at 8.30 am. - I want to

show this ticket to the conductor.

Your good name?

This ticket was issued

at 10:
00 am the day before...

...from Besent Nagar to Adyar.

I see! Something's written

on the ticket.

He gave me a hundred rupee note,

but I didn't have change... I made note of it

on the ticket...

...but he seems to have

forgotten to collect the change.

I'm sure you'll remember

the man who forgot... collect such a huge sum.

Please think hard.

Can you remember him?

How does he look?

Is he tall or short, fair or dark?

Is he stout or lean?

Think hard, I'm sure you

will recollect his personality.
