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

27 June 2009 | by vicky-compassSee all my reviews

If u are thinking what i am talking about this is one of the many excellent dialogues written for this film by kamal haasan who has also written the screenplay for this edge of the seat thriller.Directed by P.C . Sreeram who also handles the camera this is a cat and mouse chase between two honest cops and a rebellion group.Powered by an excellent technical team and amazing performances by the cast this one is a definite must watch.The director sticks on and is loyal to the central theme and offers no space for any distractions in this taut thriller an excellent movie sans songs and other supposedly "necessary" commercial elements it was an instant classic .I would give it a perfect ten.
