Osthi Velan (STR) loves his mother (Revathy) and is an inspector in a village near Tirunelveli. He has a deep rooted animosity towards his stepfather (Nassar) and step brother Balan (Jithan Ramesh) from childhood. Balan is a loser who by hook or crook wants to marry his lady love (Sarnya Mohan). In between, our hero falls for Neduvali (Richa Gangopadhyay). Then there is this politician-thug Boxer Daniel (Sonu Sood) with whom Velan lock horns. The villain exploits the hostility between the brothers to get back at Velan. Written by Captain

Osthi.....those who watched the film nasty!
14 December 2011 | by kannan-wizkidSee all my reviews

The movie was not up to the mark. The promo they gave and they output the movie gave was totally irrelevant! Though it was a remake of the Hindi film Dabangg. STR did not perform to his best. Except for Santhanam's comedy and songs....the movie is not worth to be watched. After seeing so many awesome roles of surya vikram kamal ajith etc in police stories, simbhu's police role didn't give the exact feel of a typical police. Most scenes were expressionless. And also the movie was too long...after consistent hits like dhill dhool and gilli we expected more from Dharani. To say in short "Without Santhanam the film is nothing!".
