‘Ayokya’ story deals with an unapologetically corrupt cop realises his mistakes and stands up for a noble cause to ensure that a few criminals get severe punishment.
Karnan (Vishal) is an orphan who grew up the hard way and wants to be a policeman at all costs. He wants to be a cop for all the wrong reasons. Finally using dubious methods, he joins the police and becomes corrupt and has hardly any emotions when it comes to money and power. He gets transferred to Chennai on the recommendation of a local gangster Kaalirajan (Parthiepan) and virtually starts working for him and making money.
His associate constable (KS Ravikumar), an honest cop with a conscience, tries to correct him on many occasions but fails. His girlfriend Sindhu (Raashi Khanna), who runs a pet care centre, asks him to save a girl from the clutches of Kaali’s men, as her “birthday gift”. Karnan, to please Sindhu, goes out of his way to save the girl, whom his benefactor Kaali wants to be killed at any cost. This incident changes his outlook towards life and he decides to mend his ways.
Ayokya is not a remake of Temper. Ayogya more or less follows the original version, including the characterisations and locations, till the unexpected climax. Vishal’s character in the film undergoes a transformation for the better, triggered by a rape incident.
Ayogya is hard-hitting action drama that comes out with a powerful and timely message.
The movie produced by B Madhu, while Vi Karthik handled the camera and Vikram Vedha composer Sam CS composes music for this movie, Ruben takes care of editing department.
