Christopher is a cop designated to investigate cases where the women are the victims. Christopher has no mercy for the criminals, and his impatience is due to his personal experience. Christopher loses his temper when seeing the criminals who have committed crimes against women, and that's due to his past story. Four youngsters are killed and the Home Secretary, Beena Mariam Chacko, insists the CM take action against the case. So, the CM launched an investigation team headed by ACP Sulekha. Sulekha investigates the deaths as well as the history of the encounter specialist, Christopher. Trimurthy Aiyer is one of the reasons behind the women's assault. So, what's Christopher's take on him? Was Sulekha able to get him red-handed? The rest of the film deals with this.
Mammootty's screen presence is laudable as ever. The actor impressed us with his looks, minute expressions, with his eyes, and stunning body language. The female leads didn't get significant roles, though Amala Paul appears on the screen for a long. Vinay Rai is stylish, but not his role.
When the audience expects a super cop-thriller from the super combo, Udaykrishna, and Unnikrishnan with Mammuka on their hands, what they get is a disappointment. Though Mammootty's screen presence is excellent and his performance is good, the rest of the characters are not written well. Vinay didn't get a vital role and looked like a regular villain. Though the film has no unnecessary romance and songs, it lacks some punch that the audience expects. Too many bloodshed clippings and women assaults are shown, and that didn't appeal well. The music and visuals are okay.
- The performance of Mammootty
What's Not There?
- Some of the lead roles are not scripted well
If you want to watch a film with some powerfully written characters and a solid villain, then this film doesn't fall under that category. If you are a Mammootty fan, you can watch this cop thriller, only for him.
