Rating- ***

The powerful dialogue of G.J.Kannan is quite impressive in this cop tale in which Prabhu Deva plays the protagonist. Sample this-do cops work for their department or for the people? The film’s protagonist poses this question at an undercover cop! Good riddle!

Finally, towards the end, the protagonist delivers the answer too-it all depends one’s conscience says in a particular situation; simply go with it, he says!

The screenplay is neatly woven with a lot of thrills and frills and the plot is set around a couple of murders as a former cop is recalled to duty following his resignation some time earlier owing to specific reasons!

He is, Pon. Manickavel, a dare devil and no nonsense cop who is also an expert in handling guns!

The higher officials summon his services to solve the mystery behind the killings that involve a Judge as well as a Cop.

He is happily married to Anbarasi (Nivetha Pethuraj) and there is a romantic number too!

How Pon Manickavel resolves the issue is the interesting rest.

Suresh Menon is slowly but steadily getting into the shoes of Raghuvaran in terms of exhibiting style in stature and substance in performance.

D.Imman’s score passes muster.

Prabhu Deva’s dance number deserves mention.
