This incident makes Nakul very disappointed and disturbed virtually plans of walking away from the college, sport and his home in Trichy.

Nakul with a heavy heart joins a college in Chennai where he meets his news friends and in accordance they happen to be the basketball players in the college. The star has shown all form of emotions and tries himself hard from being away from the sport, but situations prefer him to be in and losing that grip the star challenges the senior of the college that cricket is not only the sport that is be cherished in this country.

Jayaprakash a big business man in the city decides to sponsor the basketball tournament on his daughter Mruthula’s wish but in return ask his daughter to stay from any romantic relationship. Jayaprakash once again melts the audience with his crisp acting and attitude. Nakul has shown maturity in his acting and all the others have done their part well, but still that element of comedy is real missing in the college campus with Jegan having no partners to host the comic portions in the script.
The songs are not much impressive. But BGM & Cinematography pays the respect for the script and screenplay. What are the challenges that Nakul and team faces to win the championship title in the Basket ball tournament is Vallinam all about. The director has shown good respect for sports and sportsmanship by letting the end cards to have all the sports personality in the country and in additional has Thala Ajith who recognized himself in the racing sports will provoke his fans to respect the will power and interest in all the sports.
