Riveting action fare

Karthi, Rakul Preet in a well-researched, realistic cop film

The film is very different in tone and presentation. The makers authentically portray the functioning of police and how they investigate. They have also shown us the practical difficulties in arresting criminals who operate outside the state without much commercial glorification or melodrama. (more)
