Filmmaker Nanda Periyasamy, who has made content-driven movies and has won the hearts of Tamil audiences, has now directed the film ‘Thiru. Manickam’ starring Samuthirakani in the lead role. The story revolves around a simple plot of how an ordinary man named ‘Manickam’ becomes ‘Thiru. Manickam’ (Thiru is a prefix to name of reputed, adorable and inspiring icons in the society).

The film begins on a curious note if a man can remain honest and genuine amidst the chaos of current society. The film’s protagonist Manickam, who has ritually inclined to honesty, gets troubled by his own family members including wife, uncle, aunty, mother-in-law and others, who want him to choose the dishonest means of living. Besides, he is troubled by the corrupt police officers, and more than all, the hero is haunted by his own conscience as well. How he manages to tackle all the odds, and accomplishes a complicated mission, by sticking to honesty forms the basic crux of this story.
