Where did you watch this movie?

A barbaric act in a law college provoked by a local minister makes headlines which catch the attention of our hero, Guna, who at first hardly pays any attention and instead laughs at the comments posted on the video from the incident on his friend's Facebook wall. Guna is constantly reminded of the incident over the next few days, forcing him to do the unthinkable, and results in the inevitable. He kidnaps the local minister's brother, Eeswaran, who has come out on parole and instigates the opposition party to accuse the minister of hiding his own brother. Following the disappearance of his brother, the minister is forced to resign and is arrested. Having succeeded in putting the minister behind bars, Guna lets go of Eeswaran who sets out to seek revenge. The crux of the story is of a common man who goes out of his way to fight injustice...

A fantastic storyline, but could have been explored deeper

The movie starts off with an actual footage from a public incident, narrated with a cinematic twist. But slowly the story gets deviated into not-so trivial plots.
The highlights in this movie: Cinematography was good; fight sequences were done well; the introduction for the heroine was impressive, their romance depicted differently (unlike the usual) and the comedy between the couple was especially given a new treatment. But, the hero's characterization is vague, so it is unclear why this incident angers him.
It takes guts to make a movie around a strong public incident, but I wonder why the director did not dwell into the actual reason.
