Policegiri movie is the remake of Tamil movie Sammy.Sanjay Dutt (Rudra) is playing the role of a rough neck cop with a bit of both the bad cop-good cop act which also gives comic touch in his character, whereas Prachi Desai (Sehar) will wear the image of a girl next door and is a software engineer who falls in love with Dutt and marries him.Rudra is a tough and charismatic Deputy Commissioner of police of a small town called Amalapur in Hyderabad.His mission statement is to, clean up the city of the scum of the earth and make sure that the public live in peace undisturbed.Seeing his macho looks, brave heart and honest nature, Sehar an unconventional beauty falls in love with him. But off the record, Rudra adapts a new policy of adjusting with the local goons so that he can serve the people in an effective way.Nagori Subramaniyam (Prakash Raj), is an underworld don(Kingmaker) who has the total control of Southern states, both in politics as well as Rowdyism.
Sanjay Dutt did not feel comfortable with the movie backing on the success of Thanedaar, considering the fact that the story was not written keeping in mind the original Thanedaar. Furthermore, the directors and producers of the original Thanedaar were different. Subsequently, Sanjay Dutt suggested to brainstorm for another name. See more »

The action was just too over the top and completely unrealistic. Save your money for a better experience. I was just too eager to watch because of Sanjay Dutt and came out feeling that the director and screenplay writer deserved jail time. The director K.S.Ravikumar needs to quit as his time is done. The movie would have been a hit in the 1990s but not for this decade. The story was the same as the Tamil original but the screenplay was slower and certainly did not deliver. If only the action was directed with some sense. If the schedule was tight owing to the lead actor's pending jail term, they should have planned better. In one of the songs, extensive use of the chroma key (green screen) was just too obvious and did not scale the lead pair to the size of the video that they were pasted on. Everything taken into account, the movie would probably bomb due to the unrealistic action sequences, the mediocre directing and outdated screenplay style.
