Vimal plays a character called Idayakani in Desingu Raja. He is an MGR fan and takes offence at anyone who slights the star in the film.
Desingu Raja is diretced by director Ezhil.
Says Ezhil, ‘ am attempting humour in a serious situation. During visits to my native village, I had seen people committing crimes on the spur of the moment and immediately regretting them. Even then, they would make light of it by joking and laughing about it. In Desingu Raja, I have utilised this trait to bring out the humour’.
