Sub-Inspector Durai Singam lives a fairly wealthy lifestyle in Nallore along with his parents and a sister. He uses the powers vested in him wisely and well, and is, therefore, respected by everyone. He meets with and falls in love with Kavya Mahalingam but faces strong opposition from her Chennai-based businessman father, who does not approve of him. Before things could be sorted out, the High Court directs an influential gangster, Mayil Vaaganam, to report to Durai. The former initially refuses to attend, but relents and attempts to vainly use goon power to intimidate Durai and instead ends up humbled and humiliated. Upon the latter's return to Chennai, he ensures Durai gets transferred there and prepares a plan to terrorize and humiliate not only Durai but also his friends and family with impunity.

Ideal plot for "Dabbang" sequel
15 November 2010 | by AvinashPatalaySee all my reviews

Cop-stories seem to be order of the day. One-man army. One honest cop against the corruption and the evils in the society. It started with "Pokiri", "Dabbang" stamped it and now there are cop-stories are being churned out in plenty.

Just like "Dabbang", the plot is the "Ssssh" word. Its the format, presentation and punch which rules the roost and transports you into the 70's/

80's genre of film making where creative liberties were aptly justified when the audience taste-buds for poetic justice was satiated. The plot is wrapped with good performance from the protagonist and his nemesis, death-defying action sequences and romance with the lady thrown in as relief moments.

Surya:: This is the first Surya movie I have watched and must admit that he has a great screen-presence. His novel mouth-ache adds to the cop character.

Anushka:: Gets a few songs to shake her body and weave a romantic track around the plot.

Prakashraj:: As usual he is himself, super-confident as ever. Ensures to hog the audience attention every time he appears on the screen.

Songs are good. Background score is engrossing. Action sequences as mentioned earlier has a punch, though a few places it seems to imitate Rajinikanth style. Comedy wasn't upto the mark, but passable. I watched the dubbed Telugu version namely "Yamudu" and the make-suit has been done well.
