Towards the end of 18th century...

British who entered our country for trade,

gradually they became masters

and we ended up as slaves.

Great leaders fought against them and

became martyrs for the motherland.

But still some smaller kings like Palayars

supported the British empire.

This is a fictionalized story

about one of those Palayars.

1771 A.D. - Chozhapuram Palayam

Midnight, Owls howling time

King Mokkayappar

Minister Sangilimayan

Palace Guard

Palace lizard

Brother-in-law, l'm anxious.

Why anxiety King?

ls it because you've lost

Or is it because my sister is in labour pains

prematurely in the 8 month itself?

What can we do now?

A neighbouring Palayar has bravely launched

an agitation against the British.

On the other side Hyder Ali is going

on a rampage against the British.

Shouldn't l also fight the British?

Shouldn't l need a heirto it?

Prime Minister, a boy baby is born.

Wow! Happy news!

We have a Prince...

Twins? -Yes, Minister.

l can usurp this kingdom if there's only

one child who will grow at my command.

Doctor, don't reveal to the King

about child birth till l tell you.

Who is there?

Prime Minister, l've studied the

horoscopes of the twins.

l'll briefly explain it to you.

Elder one follows orders blindly.

And younger one is sagacious.

Stupid law gives the right to rule

kingdom only to legal heirs.

There is no chance for people

like me to rule it.

A prince is born.

He must dance to my tunes only.

Blind follower of orders

and Sagacious!

To fulfill my plan of usurping

this kingdom,

l want the elder one,

who blindly follows orders.

Doctor, kill the second child.

Prime Minister!?-What?

Do you want me to kill a baby boy?

This is waxing of moon.

lf you kill a new born child now,

it's a bad omen for our kingdom.

Let's dispose the child

at unknown location.

Oh! Really?

Doctor... -Yes, Minister.

Leave the child on Vaigai river bank at

the outskirts of Pandia's kingdom.

Have it.

Why sweets?

A happy news...

l've committed a sin.

Do l need sweet to celebrate it?

Why? What happened?

Our King Mokkayappan had twins.

But Minister Sangilimayan ordered

a child to be...

When l went to take bath in the river,

Goddess gifted this child to me.

You sinner! -What happened?

What the hell you have done?!

This is the King's child

l left it to float in the river.

l'm afraid, if Sangilimayan comes to

know about fostering this child...

We are staying 18 miles

away from the palace.


We are moving to Kanchipuram shortly.

Hubby, we don't have children.

Let's fosterthis child.

My dear citizens,

After losing 22 children,

Now God has blessed me

with this 23rd child.

He is an answerto umpteen

prayers of this kingdom.

Once when l went to meet Hyder Ali,

On the way, l visited 'Pulikesinathan' temple,

offered prayers there wishing for a son.

Since he was born with Lord's blessings,

l give him the name 23rd Pulikesi.

l think an insect has bitten him.

What the hell are you doing

without taking care of him?

To keep our prince smiling always,

A man from every home should

get slapped. Come fast.

Ouryoung prince is torturing us now.

What's in store forthe future?

After 25 years 3 months

17 days and 8 hours...

Same Chozhapuram palayam

Morning office going time

You're the Supreme Power.

You're the Ruler.

You're the only one with eternal fame.

You're the mother and the father.

You're my God, who protects me.

My dearfather, as your son,

Bless me to become great warriors like

Alexander & Napoleon and Emperor Ashoka.

Oh my God!

Hey, Priest.... -Yes, my lord.
