One of Kamal Haasan's most well-known films was Nayakan (1987), in which he acted in conjunction with Mani Ratnam's talent for precise detail. The narrative opens on the tranquil Tamil Nadu coast. A little boy named Velu is on the run after a shootout between some groves claimed the life of his father, a trade-union leader. After exacting revenge, Velu flees to seek safety in the slums of Dharavi. He resides in a cramped, gloomy room after being adopted by a foster father. The peculiar life of a vigilante justice starts here. The picture unfolds with fragmented incidents that are expertly knitted together, much like “montage cinema” of the 1920s.
