The story is set in Ooty , when a barrel of toxic waste is spilled due to negligence ,it begins to infect the life around it. It makes the infected violent and drawn towards blood. Meanwhile as the outbreak reaches the heart of the city Karthik( Jeyam Ravi ) is searching for his lost little sister. With the help of Renuka ( Lakshmi Menon ) a doctor he finds his sister , to repay his debt he agrees to transport her and a group of doctors to the nearest city to find a cure for this outbreak. How he completes the task in the midst of the outbreak is the rest of the story.
Being the first zombie Tamil film, Miruthan keeps it simple and neat in the story line. There is no gore and violent blood sequences but has its share of thrills. Jayam Ravi doesn’t overdo is role and keeps its tight. Lakshmi menon does her part but nothing great. Kaali Venkat gives us a bit of comic relief which keeps the film going. We have to wait & see how this film is taken by the audiences as its the first zombie flick in Tamil film history, ( don’t forget Nalaya Manithan by Thakkali Srinivasan the first sci-fi horror Tamil film ) . This might be a little violent but not scary. I give it 3/10.
