He expresses sensitively and is kind-hearted to transgender people, moreover the females he directs out to work. On the other, whilesomebodyprobes why she was rewarded lesser this time, he utters, "Her age is growing". At initialvision, you can't measure if Prasad is noble or wicked. However you recognize he is not the consistentlurid pimp depicted in movies.

In the primary part, the director leads you into the life style of Nimmi (Meera Nair), a sex operative, Prasad and Chetta. Nimmi is somebody who doesn't even notice having the cigarette scorches on her physique if she acquires decent cash. There is a section where she views a talk show on TV, and the swarm light-heartedly utters, "Men get further good-looking once they hit the forties."

As for Chetta, he doesn't pile his links on the mobile; but inscribes them down on the address paperback in his own language Malayalam. Jagadeesan Subu forms those tiny particulars and marks you understand with each of his roles. While Nimmi goes lost, Prasad starts questioning around her locations. We are presented how Prasad senses shamefaced when he understands he sets countless females at threat. The story commences from thereon. Certain sections are reported gorgeously. You don't perceive Mathivanan (Kathir) in the initial part; however as a transgender individual, he preserves the succeedingpart.

In what manner the lives of Nimmi, Mathivanan and Prasad interconnect procedures the basis of the picture. The difficult part with Sigai is that it senses like two dissimilar movies intertwined into one. It is obvious that the movie was shot 2 years back, and it does nag you here and there. The script wasn't considerable enough for the reason that it lacked genuineness. The filmmaker has encumbered his storyline with pigeon-holes.
