4 Naan Kadavul

NaanKadavul chronicles the life of Rudran, an ascetic from Varanasi and his trysts with a seemingly normal life in the temple city in south India, Pazhani. Abandoned as a child by his father in a strange land with strange people, he grows up among the sadhus and the babas adapting to their way of life and becomes one of them. The rest of the plot is formed by the interaction between Rudran, a detached ascetic who has no moorings or bonding with the world and how he unwittingly, unwillingly gets sucked into the world of the beggars which leads to drastic, life altering changes to all of them.
