Direction: Karthik Thangavel
Cast: Jayam Ravvi, Raashi Khanna, Ponvannan, Sampath Raj
Jayam Ravvi is back with a commercial cop thriller, which has a much-needed message for the current-day society. This Karthik Thangavel-directed film is about emotional police official Subash (Jayam Ravi) who is a know-it-all when it comes to technology. So much so, that he is never at fault.
Subash (Jayam Ravvi) is an IPS aspirant and wants to do right by his job but is constantly told off by his superior officer to “obey the order”. He is seen getting increasingly frustrated with his own police force, but he also knows how to work around the system. More than once, he tells the public how to instigate law enforcement. He works hard on the apparent rape and murder case of a girl named Parvathy, but is ordered to write it off as another suicide case, while the perpetrators walk free. He is suspended and goes home to find his family murdered. The film immediately shifts to a revenge plotline and the story picks up pace.
Ravi owns the film and other characters around him are just mere spectators, just like us. Be it Subash’s family or his girlfriend Anitha (Raashi Khanna), they do not have a substantial role. Instead, they are just supporting actors who are needed for just a scene or two. Composer Sam CS’s background score is a huge plus to the film as it elevates the most important scenes.Debutant director Karthik Thangavel’s Adanga Maru starring Jayam Ravi could have been a flawless cop thriller.
