Donning khaki is not new to Vishal. The actor, in the past, had appeared as police officer in films like ‘Sathyam’, ‘Paayum Puli’, ‘Vedi’ and ‘Aambala’. But, it is a different game in ‘Ayogya’ and this becomes his best cop story so far.
Debutant director Venkat Mohan, who has remade Telugu blockbuster ‘Temper’ (starring NTR Junior in the lead), has made slight changes to the original script and has retained majority portions.
Karnan (Vishal), a police officer, is corrupted to the core. He is not just corrupt, but is also a cunning, manipulative and ruthless cop.
There is a vile gang leader (R Parthiepan) in the town and Karnan joins forces with him. By getting money from the don, he helps him in all his unlawful activities.
One day, Karnan meets a beautiful woman and activist (Raashi Khanna) and it is love at first sight for him. He impresses her and makes her fall for him too.
Karnan’s girlfriend wants him to save the life of a girl who is in danger because of the don’s men. For, she has the proof for the atrocities staged by the gang.
Soon, Karnan undergoes a change of heart and becomes a honest police officer. The rest is all about how he puts full-stop to the illegal activities of the gang.
Vishal is in full force and he shines bright as both good and bad cop. Raashi Khanna has done a performance oriented role and established that she is a beauty with talent.
Parthiepan is a scream as a ruthless baddie, while K S Ravikumar touches the heart. The likes of Sonia Agarwal, Pooja Devariya and Devadarshini are adequate to their respective characters.
Sam C S’s music, VI Karthik’s cinematography and Sreekar Prasad’s editing give enough support to Venkat Mohan. With a strong team and content, Vishal has delivered a commercial cop cinema with a message.
