The plot is based on the true story of Pothakudi village in Sivagangai district of Tamil Nadu, who lived without electricity for over 35 days to save a sparrow and its eggs. The sparrow had laid its eggs on the EB main switchboard in the village.
The villagers, who decided to protect the endangered bird, went without street lights and lived in darkness until the eggs hatched and the young ones flew away. Since the streetlights were connected to the board, the villagers disconnected the line to help the sparrow. The noble gesture by the villagers had won many hearts.

Towards the latter half of the show, Kathirravan walked away with the Rs 3 lakh cash prize. Though his fellow contestants asked him to reconsider his decision, Kathirravan walked away in his usual calm demeanour.
