TN 07 AL 4777 is all about two personalities
who are diametrically opposite and belong
to the two extremes of the spectrum of
society and how the hands of fate bring
Pasupathy, a taxi driver, lives with his
wife Simran and son. However, not wanting
to disclose about his profession, lies
to his wife that he is an LIC agent. Ajmal
is the son of an extremely wealthy and
affluent father who dies leaving his Rs.
500 crore property to his friend Venkatraman
not trusting his profligate son. Meanwhile,
a previously written will by Ajmal’s
dad is in Ajmal’s locker. Ajmal
files a complaint against Venkatraman
in the court that the latter has cheated
his dad and to prove his point he is on
his way to the bank locker to produce
the old will written on his name.
On the particular fateful day, Ajmal travels
in Pasupathy’s car and in his haste
to reach the court in time, he hurries
Pasupathy and lures him with money for
a fast ride and forces him to violate
traffic rules. Pasupathy also heeds to
Ajmal’s pleas succumbing to the
monetary bug, which eventually lands his
taxi in an accident that leads to a street
brawl and police intervention. Later,
Pasupathy is taken to the police station.
Meanwhile, realizing the seriousness of
the situation, Ajmal slowly slips away.
Now Pasupathy hits the jackpot when he
realizes that Ajmal in his rush, has left
in his taxi, the key to the locker and
decides to settle scores with him using
this as his trump card.
What happens to Pasupathy after this and
how he uses his trump card and whether
Ajmal gets his property form the rest

Two hours of the film moves at a jet speed.
The deft handling of the script by director
Lakshmikanthan is commendable. Pasupathy
and Simran have understood their characters
perfectly and have essayed them well.
Ajmal, who has the right mix of looks
and talent, is a man to be watched out
for. The scene where he unites Simran
and Pasupathy is just a sample of his
emoting skills. Pasupathy proves that
he is after all an experienced artist
from Koothu Pattarai in the sequence where
he pleads to Ajmal not to hit him in front
of his little son. Ajmal has also given
the apt response in this emotional caper.
Meenakshi of Karuppusamy Kuthagaidarar
is Ajmal’s girl friend and there
is nothing to say about her.
by Vijay Antony is just passable. Songs
do not merge with the film and stand out
separately. The remix song of Sorgam Maduvile
is an eye sore. Cinematography by R.B.
Gurudev is up to the mark while Sasikumar
in the department of editing is satisfactory.
A good racy film sans unnecessary frills!
