A captivating thriller
11 April 2019 | by omkar1984See all my reviews

A captivating police thriller! While it's a highly dramatized version of a police operation, a commoner like me gets bits of information about the police ways of investigation and nabbing the criminals. The importance of technology, especially, digitisation of the police files, the crucial nature of coordination between the police departments of different states etc. have been portrayed well. Highlights the exasperating state of the security apparatus in out country and the utter disregard and oblivion towards the honest and brave police officers. If one ignores the brief relapses of typical Indian(Tamil cinema no exception!) masala, the movie is an engrossing experience. It's high time that Bollywood takes a cue from the regional film industries and reinvents itself.
