It is an ideal, happy home. A police constable father, a mother devoted to her husband and children, an elder son waiting for the final interview to be inducted as a police inspector, and studious younger children. The father dreams of the day he can salute his son.
Everything goes awry when the father gets transferred to a new posting. When the elder son happens to see his father being hit by a goon, he jumps in and gets entangled in a street fight, for the first time in his life. The assailant is badly wounded, and that is the first time anyone in the village has stood up to the goon. Villagers hail the son as the next big hoodlum. Unwittingly, he gets involved in many more street fights and soon his name gets listed as one of the most wanted hoodlums.
This is the story of one of Mohanlal's most loved Malayalam films, Kireedam. Now, it's being remade into Tamil by his brother in law Suresh Balaji, with Ajith in the lead. With Kireedam, Adlabs enters the Tamil film world.
