26 June 2004 | by paanduraamSee all my reviews

this movie though adapted from another one is warm and touches your mind with simplicity of its characters. the main characters in the movie are two police officers. one of them is young, unmarried and daring while the other one is divorced, and very careful person as he cares a lot about the future of his son. the comic part is when most of their adventures end in medals for our divorcee by mistake. any way due to one accident in a blood testing lab our divorcee hero gets a blood result telling him that he is going to die. the hero finding himself in gloom and despair loses all his fear of death. his only aim there after is to get killed in an encounter so that his family gets the insurance money. this leads to very comic scenes.
