'In Tamil Nadu, Nelaiappar and

Thiruvarur chariot festivals...'

'...are famous for their chariots

used in their processions'

'But this Veerapandi chariot is

famous because it is stationary!'

'The 2 groups standing here

are the main contributors'

'At least this year let's see

if they pull this chariot!'

Sir, no problem

Just a tin sheet that fell

in a strong gust of wind

Just a tin sheet?

If it had fallen on your head

you would've known

Thangavelu, have you

arranged tight security?

We've arrested 100 men

including the chairman's nephew

That means our chariot

will finally move this year

Sir, you're very optimistic!

These arrests and warnings

are only for our satisfaction

They'll continue to do whatever

they want to their satisfaction

Are you never positive?

I've told our higher-ups

somehow we will do it this year

Even delivered punch dialogs

Ensure there's no problem

Not possible, sir

I can do something

only if a problem arises

Is this how a police officer talks?

Talk according to your stature

Sorry, sir

Why is there such a huge crowd?

Did you bribe them

with 'biriyani' packets?

Half of them are


They've come to watch

the fun if a problem arises

It's like watching

a circus for them

He's the new Collector

I believe the old Collector has been

admitted in hospital for chest pain

Today we'll admit

the new Collector

Usually after prayer

sacred water is offered

But here you're serving tea?!

They are real barbarians!

I can see that

They will be quiet as mice

during the initial preparations

But when the chariot is

being pulled they will raise hell

Have both the groups assembled?

Yes, sir

The one on this side is

Chairman Seva Pandian

He has held the post

for past 20 years

Nothing happens here

without his knowledge

His men are the majority here

The gentleman standing

over there is Mahesh Babu

His father's name is Kothandam

He contested elections

for 20 years and lost

Dejected he died, sir

He's in a frenzy to achieve

what his father couldn't, sir

Let's see

Please come, sir

All of you stop screaming

Allow the officer to talk

- Greetings, one and all

- Welcome, sir

Why are they greeting me

in a chorus like school kids?

And you malign them as barbaric

This is how they'll begin

Temple, festival and chariot

are common for everyone

You've been fighting

for many years

We don't even know

if this chariot will move

So this year stop your fights

and pull the chariot with unity

Today this temple maybe

common to everyone

But this temple was

built by my ancestors

We should be given

the honors to pull the chariot

And the welcome ritual

has to be only for us!

Maybe they built the temple

but this property belongs to us

Not only that

We own the 18 villages

surrounding this area

At one point my family

ruled this land

Family that ruled the land

should be given the honors

That is our tradition

I'm not willing to give up

our tradition at any cost

Did you rule at a stretch?

We also ruled in between

We ruled as much as you did

You think you ruled brilliantly!

Don't make me malign you!

Stop it

Given a chance you will

go on flashback mode

If your ancestors have built

the temple in their ancestral land...

...what does it mean?

It means they didn't even

have land to build the temple!

They co-existed peacefully

You are the ones

fighting like cats and dogs

We can't give up

our rights for anyone

You're enjoying the rights

we relinquished, I say

Why are you wasting time

talking to him, bro?

Don't talk

All of you dance

to a folk song!
