Meanwhile, department promotes Murugavel as a sub inspector and transfers him to Chennai.On knowing his brother is a henchman, Murugavel kills him in front of the public and gets promoted as inspector of police. The rest of the film is all about how Murugavel changes the mindset of adolescent kids who works under Padma, he also transforms the corrupted police officers by teaching them the importance of being honest.
The film also deals with life of people in lower economic backdrop and Ganeshaa has portrayed it without any compromise. While the first half is quite engaging, the second flows in various directions and ends with a loud fight.
Vijay Antony is quite impressive as the upright cop and his earnest performance is evident throughout the film. Nivetha Pethuraj plays the role of an audacious local cop with Chennai slang, the actress actually provides the much needed comic relief whereas the four youngsters who acted as juvenile criminals are brilliant. Dheena got an interesting role in Thimiru Pudichavan and he has done a neat job.
