There is a big risk in experimenting something in cinema about which the people
are not matured enough or aware of or they lack the knowledge of appreciating
it. Also when movies of two superstars of same industry hits the screen on the
same day and if one is such an experimentation without any commercialism then
the fate of the movie is obvious a clean sweep in box office. The same is the
fate of the movie called “Guna” which was released on the same day of release of
an all time classic commercial film “Thalapathy” starring superstar Rajini and
directed by Maniratnam. But know when people watches “Guna” in TV channels they
all appreciate the movie for its new kind of story, screenplay and
characterization with lot of experiments.
Guna is a mentally affected person and gets treatment in a mental asylum and
there anothermentally affected person tells him the story of fictious character
“Abirami” and registers in his mind that “She is an angel and she is going to
marry you on a full moon day”. After coming out of the hospital, he believes the
story to be true and searches for his “Abirami”. One day he mistakes a rich girl
in a temple as Abirami and kidnaps her and takes to a lonely damaged house
situated at the top of the hill resort called Kodaikanal. Though the girl at
first hates him for his rustic and strange attitude towards her, she later
understands the deep, divine love of Guna and accepts his love and marries him.
Meanwhile, police and the girl’s uncle are searching for her. But finally after
a lot of logical twists and turns in the screenplay her uncle kills “Abirami”
for her property and Guna also commit suicide with her.
