Polladhavan is a 2007 Indian Tamil-language action thriller film directed by Vetrimaran and produced by S. Kathiresan. The film stars Dhanush in the lead role, with Ramya and Kishore Kumar G. playing supporting roles. The movie is a remake of the 1980 Rajinikanth starrer of the same name. The story revolves around Prabhu (Dhanush), a young man who lives with his father (Azhagam Perumal) in the slums of Chennai. Prabhu is a carefree and irresponsible person who is always on the lookout for thrills.

One day, Prabhu's life takes a dramatic turn when his bike is stolen by a gang of thieves. Determined to get his bike back, Prabhu sets out on a mission to find the thieves and retrieve his property. However, in the process, he endangers the lives of the people around him.

Prabhu soon discovers that the gang of thieves is led by a dreaded underworld don named Selvam (Kishore Kumar G.). Prabhu befriends Selvam's sister Hema (Divya Spandana), and she helps him in his mission to retrieve his bike. However, things take a dark turn when Selvam finds out about Prabhu's intentions and decides to seek revenge.

The movie is packed with breathtaking action sequences and edge-of-the-seat moments, making it a thrilling watch for action enthusiasts. However, it's not just the action that makes Polladhavan worth watching.

The film also explores the complex relationship between a father and his son. Prabhu's father is an honest and hardworking man who does everything in his power to provide for his family. However, Prabhu takes him for granted and doesn't appreciate the sacrifices his father has made for him.

Polladhavan also touches upon the issue of gang violence and the impact it has on the lives of ordinary people. The film shows how the actions of a few individuals can have far-reaching consequences and affect the lives of many.

Dhanush delivers a superb performance as Prabhu, portraying the character's transformation from a carefree youngster to a responsible adult with conviction. Ramya, who plays the role of a college student, shines in her limited screen time.

Kishore Kumar G. is outstanding as the menacing underworld don Selvam, bringing depth and nuance to the character. His interactions with Dhanush's character are some of the movie's highlights.

The film's music, composed by G. V. Prakash Kumar, is another strength. The songs, especially "Engeyum Eppothum," have become popular and are still remembered today.

Overall, Polladhavan is a well-crafted action thriller that also tackles important themes like family, responsibility, and the impact of gang violence. The movie's impressive performances, exciting action sequences, and memorable music make it a must-watch for fans of Tamil cinema.
