Welcome Everyone!

In 1990, Madras...

that is Chennai Vyasarpadi

Krishnapa Naicker was a wealthy

well wisher of that place

His friend Karunakaran, both were strong

personalities in a political party

They ruled over this area

Due to unforeseen issues their

political party got dissolved

The inseparables had to part ways and

took their responsibilities accordingly

Which lead to enmity between them

The areas shared by them were

divided using their power

They divided everything amicably

Except this wall which is an

Integral part of the housing board

There were issues on who will get

it to promote their parties.

Only if our poster is displayed on

that wall, It'll be like our kingdom.

We should not let go of that wall!

Don't worry about that

We should not let go of the wall,

If we do, we can't face anyone

Meanwhile Krishnapa begins work

to paint a poster on the wall

We are scared of everything

Where were we and look where we are now

It's like a dungeon, no place

to even stretch our legs

Hey why are we talking now?

When we 3 are here, did

they bother to ask us?

Earlier we were together,

now we have our own party

It's not like that, if they get

to do it, we will go powerless

all because of arrogance, they do this.

Why can't we? Are we cowards?

Karunakaran provoked the housing board

people, who chased Krishnapa people away!

Everybody has become impudent now?

You were lying homeless on the road

Now that you have shelter, are

you rising up against me?

Whose wall do you think it is?

It belongs to the Government

Filing a petition would do..

..Youve committed fraudulence to be here

What nonsense is this, It has been

allotted to us by the Government.

No one can touch the walls

without our knowledge

You don't need us anymore?

We need you, but not your party.

Where will we paint our party's image?

Is it fine, if we do the

same on your walls?

I know who has provoked you people

Why? Don't we have brains?

See, the wall is ours and

we can't let that go..

Do what you can

The people who didn't dare

to speak against Krishnapa

Spoke against him. Looking at

that, Krishnapa's son Kannan..

Committed the first murder for the wall

Sangan died, which lead to huge riots.

But the police arrested

people from housing board

There was not a single man in the

area to help Sangan's funeral

Exactly a year after Sangan's death,

Karunakaran who came there...

..provoked Maanga there

They Shouldnt be..

Maanga slit Krishnapan's

throat in middle of the house

One week later Kannan avenged his father's

murder by killing Maanga and his son

Conspiring to kill Kannan,

one of his peeps got caught

The murders continued avenging each other

The murders just kept piling up

Meanwhile Kannan became the North Chennai

District Secretary for his party

He spoke to a few in the area

and pacified them with money.

For the first time without any opposition

he painted his father's image on the wall

He got control over the wall

Karunakaran couldnt stop this

Karunakaran passed away

in the sorrow of defeat

After which his son Maari became the

leader of the housing board people

Also took responsibility of the party

At the same time few unfortunate

incidents happen in front of that wall

An old man came from no where collapsed

and fell dead in front of the wall

Two guys rammed their bike

in to the wall and died

A guy committed suicide

jumping off the wall

Fearing these incidents, when

people consulted a holy man...

It's waiting to take more people

It's asking for blood, blood sacrifice!

Post which, everyone feared
