Deiva Thirumagal (English translation: God's Daughter) is a 2011 Indian Tamil legal drama film written and directed by A. The film comprises director Vijay's 'regular' technical crew with G. Prakash Kumar as music composer, Nirav Shah as cinematographer and Anthony as editor. He is cared for by Victor (Krishna Kumar), the owner of a chocolate factory where Krishna works.
That night, his daughter is born, but his wife Banumathy dies during childbirth.
Unable to grasp the concept of death, he simply accepts that his wife has "gone to God" and starts life as a father.
He names his daughter Nila, and raises her with love and care. With the help of Victor and his other mentally challenged friends, Krishna enrolls Nila in school.
Nila adjusts herself to school life, and befriends the correspondent Shwetha Rajendran (Amala Paul), who develops a maternal bond with the girl.
But when she sees Nila with Krishna and learns that it is his daughter, she recognizes him from a photo her sister had shown of her lover. She then refuses to let Nila stay with her dad as she is scared Krishna might unknowingly do something to his daughter.
Soon a scuffle starts between Krishna and Shwetha's fiancé Karthik (Karthik Kumar).
It is broken up by the entry of Shwetha's father Rajendran (Sachin Khedekar) who reveals that his other daughter was Banumathy, who became estranged from him by choosing to marry Krishna.
He offers to take Krishna and Nila with him and claims that they are part of his family. At a distance from Chennai, Rajendran tricks Krishna into exiting the car, and abandons him.
Distraught, Krishna wanders around the city asking passers-by where Nila is.
