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

Story of a Police officer in mission
21 February 2020 | by makeitrendSee all my reviews

Kamal and Arjun appointed as head to catch a terrorist team. They send a cop as a spy inside the terrorist group and collecting the information about them. Accidentally Nasser the head was caught by kamal in a railway station.

Terrorists needs to know who is the spy and release Nasser. Kamal, Arjun needs whole terrorists. Apart from the main story many questions are being unanswered. Film doesn't say who are the terrorists what do they want? But, we can understand they are portrayed as Naxals.

Nasser plays with black dress which may refer Dravidism. Because the film title has black and red, which is the color of dravidian party. The People in dravidism always wears black dress but, the no on with dravidian idealogy are terrorists. They don't need to become terrorists because, they are ruling the party of Tamil Nadu.

I never heard a naxal raping a police officer wife and assassinating a central minister so cool, shooting a child, and many. The film ends with kids of terrorists killed by Kamal attacking Kamal's son and saying it is a revenge.

If you are a general audience, the film will be nice. But, if you dissect many questions come from it.
