brings out the personal and official life of an honest police officer.
Sarath Kumar as the police officer exudes energy and brings out
the full power of his rugged physique and as a husband and father
he is a soft homely man vulnerable to emotions. He does full justice
to the two sides of the character.
film begins Muthusamy taking up the charge of an Assistant Commissioner
of Chennai. He is an upright police officer who rises to AC level
from an inspector. He lives with his small daughter Krithika (Baby
Monica) and has a sad past. Vijayalakshmi (Laila), a constable
at AC’s office gets closer to Krithika. In a flash back
he tells about his beloved wife Saroja (Pranathi) who dies during
delivery. In his effort to clean the society Muthusamy comes across
lots of thugs and hooligans and becomes their enemy too. On one
such incident while nabbing Naga (Jasper), an illegal arrack seller
, Muthusamy finds out the nexus behind him. Three VIP’s,
a famous industrialist Punniakodi (Sethuvinayakam), a union minister
Rajendran (Thanikala Bharani) and an IAS officer Mani Bharathy
(Manicka Vinayagam) have connections with Naga. How Muthusamy
brings these three brutes to limelight forms the rest of the story.
scenes where Sarath thinks about his wife and the happy moments
he had and coming back to reality he sobs, anxiety writ large
on his face when he sees his daughter in the ICU and in the scene
when he tells Laila to not harbour any feelings towards him shows
Sarath's acting abilities. The fight with Naga who is double the
size of the hero, the climax in which a battered Sarath gets up
to hit back his enemies, smashing up the table in the police station
and driving away the lawyers are bound to be a treat for action
lovers. Pranathi the debutant as the wife gives a very natural
performance. Laila as the timid constable who turns into a brave
girl is adequate. Vadivelu’s comedy is soaring. Baby Monica
is cute and also acts well. Suresh who gave the hit film Arasu
for Sarath Kumar has attempted an out and out commercial action
film this time. The film sans logic is handled well. But the dialogues
by Sethu Vinayagam humiliating the media could have been avoided.
Kanal Kanna’s action choreography is commendable. . Mani
Sharma’s music though resembles Arasu songs, is good. Camera
work by Y.N.Murali is worth mentioning especially in the outdoor
locales of Hampi.
