Above average cop movie
27 March 2008 | by bnarsimSee all my reviews

I saw this a couple of days ago. The plot is simple. One cop out to drive the "bad" out of a small town. He finds his dream girl in the town.He gets into a scuffle with the local leader and it threatens his life.

Vikram has done a good role as the film's lead. Trisha provides oomph value and most songs were unnecessary.

The dialogues are good and vivek has quite a few funny one liners. Warning though . This movie is strictly for Indian audiences. The song and dance and the stunt sequences may not go well with western audiences.

So its 6 on 10 for Saamy . a decent way to spend 2 and half hours on a lazy day
