Tamil film fans rank among the most unique and passionate fan cultures anywhere in the history of the world. In this state in Southern India where film culture is fundamentally tied to politics and society, fandom is an act of sustained devotion. For the love of a man follows a variety of fans - a college student, a gangster, a politician, a plumber, and a wage laborer to understand why a bus-conductor turned actor, Rajnikanth, holds such an incredible sway over their lives. From bankruptcies to reformations from lives of crime, the lives of the fans offer stories that range from the heroic to the horrific, all in a day's work of turning a film star into a deity.
