‘Vidharth, a professor in Sikkim, is coming back to Chennai to meet his lover and mother.  A gang takes him into custody and asks him to carry out a task for them.  Movie is about whether he would perform the act.  Also instance in Sikkim turns out the reason for the gang using him.’

‘We completed the portions shot in Chennai and went to Sikkim to shoot some scenes.  We planned to conduct the shooting for ten days.  We conducted the shooting in village which is in India - China border.  We stayed there in subzero temperatures and conducted shooting.  As per story, Vidharth goes in bike to the college.  One fine morning, Vidharth took the bike for sightseeing.  Vidharth, who left in the morning at 6, did not return till 11 in the noon.  So, with help of villagers, we searched for him in every nook and corner. ‘

‘At last, the local police informed that he has been detained by Chinese military.  We immediately rushed there.  They had made Vidharth sit in the check post. They did not understand his English.  Then, local people explained.  We explained the issue to Indian military officers and got a letter of guarantee from them to rescue Vidharth.  Vidharth, who had taken the motorcycle lost his way and had crossed the Chinese border.  Vidharth was very upset that day.  So we cancelled the shooting for the day and resumed the schedules next day.
