The film depicts the harsh realities of life in a Chennai textile store, where the employees are exploited and abused by the management. The film was critically acclaimed and won several awards, including four National Film Awards and six Filmfare Awards South.
The film was released on 26 March 2010 and was a commercial success at the box office. The film was also dubbed in Telugu as Shopping Mall and in Hindi as Angaarey. The film was shortlisted for the Indian submissions for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film but lost to Peepli Live.
The film follows the lives of Jyothi Lingam (Mahesh) and Kani (Anjali), two young people who work in a textile store named Senthil Murugan Stores (SMS) in Ranganathan Street, Chennai. Jyothi is an orphan who lost his parents in the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and Kani is a village girl who ran away from her abusive family. They are among the hundreds of employees who are hired by the store owner Senthil Murugan (A. Venkatesh), who treats them like slaves and pays them meagre wages. The employees are forced to work long hours, live in cramped quarters, endure physical and verbal abuse, and face sexual harassment from the supervisors. Jyothi and Kani develop a friendship and eventually fall in love with each other, despite the hardships they face.
One day, Jyothi witnesses a supervisor molesting a female employee and intervenes to save her. He is beaten up by the supervisor and his henchmen, who also threaten to kill him if he reports the incident. Jyothi decides to file a complaint against the supervisor with the help of a lawyer (Pandi). However, he is betrayed by the lawyer, who is bribed by Senthil Murugan to withdraw the case. Jyothi is arrested by the police on false charges of theft and assault, while Kani is kidnapped by the supervisor and his men, who attempt to rape her. Jyothi manages to escape from the police station and rescues Kani from the rapists. He also exposes the illegal activities of Senthil Murugan to the media, with the help of a journalist (Sneha). The police raid SMS and arrest Senthil Murugan and his associates, while Jyothi and Kani are taken to a hospital for treatment.
The film ends with Jyothi and Kani recovering from their injuries and walking out of the hospital hand in hand, with a hope for a better future.

The film was produced by Ayngaran International and directed by Vasanthabalan, who had previously made critically acclaimed films like Veyil (2006) and Aravaan (2012). The film was inspired by Vasanthabalan's own experiences of working in a textile store as a teenager. He said that he wanted to expose the "inhuman" conditions of the workers in such stores and create awareness among the public. He also said that he chose Ranganathan Street as the backdrop of the film because it was "the most crowded place in Chennai" and "a symbol of consumerism".
The film marked the debut of Mahesh, who was selected after auditioning more than 2000 candidates. Anjali, who had acted in films like Kattradhu Thamizh (2007) and Rettaisuzhi (2010), was cast as the female lead. The film also featured several newcomers and theatre artists in supporting roles. The film was shot in real locations in Ranganathan Street and other parts of Chennai, with hidden cameras and candid shots. The film also used real employees of textile stores as extras. The film was completed in 85 days, with a budget of 5 crore.
The film's music was jointly composed by Vijay Antony and G. V. Prakash Kumar, who had previously collaborated for Veyil. The film had six songs, written by Na. Muthukumar, Yugabharathi, and Thamarai. The songs were sung by various singers, including Haricharan, Naresh Iyer, Shreya Ghoshal, Vineeth Sreenivasan, Ranjith, Janaki Iyer, Benny Dayal, Hamsika, G. V. Prakash Kumar, and MK Balaji. The songs were well received by the audience and the critics, who praised the variety and the quality of the music.
