The film is a tribute to the hard work and determination of one individual, but it is also an inspiring lesson for the youth of today, who clearly needs a real-life hero, to prove to them that success comes to those who strive, against all odds. The film is directed by James Erskine and Music is given by AR Rahman. "I have to be myself", he added. To watch him get involved and cheer for me was so unreal for me.
