Some movies which are being produced in the recent times are based on real-life incidents which I much appreciate, as I like creating awareness to people and I think the film industry is one of the best options available to spread awareness.
So moving on, this movie Irumbu Thirai in Tamil and Abhimanyudu in Telugu starring Vishal, Arjun Sarja and Samantha begins with a suspicious theme of a politician asking a software engineer to manipulate his funds and ask him to convert black money (a popular Jorgen used in India to addressed wealth which is not declared by an individual to the tax authorities) into legal funds and transfers a significant amount of money to his bank account.
Then in the following scene, the software engineer’s bank account has been hacked, and all the money has been flushed out, soon after the politician finds out about this mishap, the software engineer is beaten black and blue and asked to cough up the money by the end of the evening. The disappointed software engineer returns to his apartment and receives a call from his loan agent; he disconnects the call and finally commits suicide due to the enormous debt which he could not handle.
In the next scene the hero is shown in a Spanish bar trying to entice a girl who is from Spain into marrying him and settling in Spain, it turns out the Girl likes Indian culture so the plan backfires and he also gets bashed up by a group of youths who are portrayed as patriots.
Day 2, the same group of youths are surprised when they come to know the person whom they had a brawl yesterday is Major Kadiravan, and he will be their training officer, for the whole of their training period.
After this hero is portrayed as a person who cannot tolerate injustice and is shown to have temper issues, this temper will cause him some problems in his career when he is sent to anger management classes for six weeks, where he meets a charming lady who is a psychologist named Rathi Devi. They quickly become friends, and the doctor suggests him to go meet his family, which he had neglected for many years.
When he reached his village he sees his dad and sister and feels happy, and finds out his sister is in love with a wealthy guy and wants to get married to him.
Determined to get his sister married he returns to the city and applies for a loan of ten lac Indian rupees in his military academy which the military loan officer rejects due to the major’s bad behaviour with his peers, after several failed attempts, he tries to get the loan from private banks which looks even more challenging to obtain.
Finally, when he feels lost, an unknown character introducing himself as a loan agent sparks an idea in his brain; the idea is to provide fake documents that the military officer (Kadiravan) will open a computer business in his Dad’s name and the loan will be provided based on that surety.
Sure enough, the loan is sanctioned, and ten lac rupees were credited to his Father’s account who is the account holder.
Then suddenly one day, tragedy struck, Kadir’s Father Visits the teller machine to withdraw some funds, when suddenly he realises his account balance is nil.
Soon enough he realises his bank account has been hacked and all the money was stolen.
The story progresses when the Hero tries to crack this case of cybercrime and he follows the criminals who are part of this gang, and finds out the kingpin behind this whole hacking racket is a man, better known with his user id as “WHITE DEVIL”, who is portrayed as the underworld king of computer hacking.
With a brilliantly scripted plot till the end, finally, the hero corners Satya Murthy alias White devil and confronts him and recovers not only his money but also returns the wealth of all those common man’s bank accounts which was hacked.
The film portrays various types of criminal activities which are now being carried out in the internet and using our smartphones, our touchscreen phones even though very powerful sophisticated and advanced, is an open the door to the most sensitive data of the user that is you, imagine you show your face to the phone, you store your fingerprints on the phone! How are so sure all of it is secured?
The movie also highlights illegal communities like tor and darknet, face camera eavesdropping, phone mic hacking, public CCTV hacking and finally signature on bank cheque which are stolen digitally scanned and pasted on your own cheque leaf.
So my message is simple do not use smartphones like toys, do not share your bank details to any tom dick and harry who proposes a fistful of cash back offer or a lottery. I also want to humbly request to our respected Government to beef up the security measures for our Aadhar cards as it is a pinnacle of information of an individual, Minimize your selfie craze and your social media activity, there are many white devils around who are just waiting to hunt you down on the web!
Thanks for your valuable time.
