Do check out my views on the film👍https://t.co/NezH2nKPTM
Karnan’s plot revolves around a fearless youngster fighting against the influential people who are oppressing his people through various ways. The period film which is set in the suburbs of Tirunelveli district, talks about the struggles faced by the people who belong to a small village named “Podiyankulam”. One of the main problems which acts as a barrier for the growth of “Podiyankulam” residents is the absence of government buses and a bus stop. It is reported that the film is made based on the Manjolai riots of 1999 and 1997 Melavalavu massacre.
