He lost his sparkle as a police officer after his family breakdown. He lives in a dark and violent city but even when unlawful incidents take place around him, he withdraws himself from all responsibilities and is happy to live quietly. But, things change when he is made the head of the Metro Crime Stopper Cell in Kochi. In the initial days Chandrasekhar is his cool self, focusing more on household chores and the chessboard on his table.

when a person from kerala thinks of police movies,, what comes to his mind?? a heroic and brave police officer,, who has the capability of beating up 10-15 bad guys at once and who continuously delivers punch dialogues, and mocks and stand up to his seniors who happens to be bad guys. and not to mention senseless action sequences. but grandmaster is an exception to such movies. the hero of the movie does not have super-human abilities and does not deliver punch dialogues throughout. that is the thing i liked most about this movie.
in short, grandmaster is a sensible movie with a good screenplay (not an outstanding one though), which does not insult the viewers' intelligence with the senseless clichés mentioned above.
the casting of this movie is very good. mohanlal did his role as inspector general chandrashekhar brilliantly. the supporting cast was also good.
we can safely say that b unnikrishnan, has matured both as a director and a script writer, and hope he continues to make good movies like these.
