Storyline

A police officer (Kamal Haasan) must choose between his family and duty, when members of a terror group take his wife and child hostage and pressure him to betray officers from his department. Good thriller, arguably better than the film it was remade from, Govind Nihalani's Droh Kaal. Written by Joyojeet Pal

A true cop-story.
21 September 2006 | by yogeshrajsSee all my reviews

This movie is a masterpiece.The screenplay is pacey and excellent by the fact that the entire movie revolves around the sufferings of Police men.You can catch the best of India's finest actor(Kamal Hasan). Equivalent to Kamal's performance, Naser's performance will be breathtaking. He plays the perfect role of a rebel leader. The most important part of the movie is when Kamal pleads his fellow cop who acts as a rebel and ask him to shoot himself in order to keep the secret identity of DHANUSH. Though the end is sad, the way it has been handled is touching.All credit goes for the director of the movie for choosing such a fantastic script. It is a true classy film and a must watch for all classical movie lovers.Watch this movie and enjoy the experience of thrill...
