Guilty Minds S01
Guilty Minds is a legal drama about one family that is the paragon of virtue and the other, a leading law firm dealing with all shades of grey.
The film starts with Kailasam (Ravi Kale), the somber bigwig who is performing the last rites of someone dear to him, but the appearance of Kottai (Jiiva) (first in the chaotic Koovagam festival and later atop a Veeranam pipe) swinging a scythe maniacally sets the tone for the rest of the film.
Cut to the flashback a few months ago: In Ramnad, Kottai’s mother (Saranya Ponvannan) is cutting down logs and boasting about her son: he is a god who deserves to see the outside world and derive its benefits. Kottai journeys to big bad Chennai in company with Vellaiyan (Ganja Karuppu), who dances with every Karagattam dancer on the roadside, makes lewd jokes, and appears to have only one thing on his mind. They end up at the massive home of Kailasam, the local terror who slices up people whenever he can. However, our heroes are unaware of the fact.

He cries out his woes in the song “Satham Illatha.” Mohana falls in love with him after hearing his pain. When Tulasi realizes Mohana loves Vasu, he hires Vasu to pretend he loves her back. At first it is just pretend, but then he too begins to love her. Tulasi visits Bose to inform him of his daughter’s love for a gangster and realizes Mohana is indeed his daughter. A flashback showing the parted friendship between the two men, and Ganga (Raadhika), Tulasi’s wife, abandons him and their child when she comes to know her husband is a don.
