The story is about four friends and one of them sacrifices his life for the sake of friendship.

Arivazhagan (Premji Amaren), Gajani (Vijay Vasanth), and Raja (Nithin Sathya) are close friends. Velu (Ajay Raj), who is out to avenge the killing of his younger sister by her boyfriend, also joins these friends. In this situation, a rowdy's daughter, Priya (Nancy Jennifer), loves Velu, but he does not reciprocate. He has to first kill the person who cheated his sister and took her life. When it is known that it is Raja is the culprit, Ajay picks up an 'aruval' and rushes to confront him. In the meantime, Raja hires a mercenary paying him Rs 5 lakes to kill Velu.

  • Critical reception

    Behindwoods wrote "Director Sundareswaran subjects you to a melodramatic version of struggling-youngsters-making-it-big combined with a friend’s-sacrifice story. He also stages the hate-me-since-I-will-die-in-a-few-days sacrificial love story intertwined in a plot already ridden with too many clichés." Balaji B of Thiraipadam wrote "Thozhaa has a strong central protagonist but surrounds him with characters who are not so strong. So the film is on strong ground when focusing on its protagonist but turns slow and dragging when dealing with the people surrounding him. This happens throughout the film, from the initial backstories the characters are given to the final climax. So on the whole, Thozhaa is a not-so-bad film about a good friend." Rediff wrote "Imagine a sturdy house, brightly coloured, reasonably proportioned standing on wilting, slender sticks that barely support it amidst swirling flood-waters. That's Arowana Films' Thozha, directed by N Sundareshwaran."
