‘Searing expose’ of corruption in the metropolis, mainly providing a platform for Suresh Gopi to play the violent uniformed avenger. In a contemporary Kerala city ruled by drug traffickers, pornographers, smugglers and other assorted criminals, the cop Ravi (Gopi) avenges the murders of the Deputy Inspector General’s daughter and of his journalist friend while enduring the marriage of his girlfriend to a formerly corrupt but now reformed Member of the Legislative Assembly. In the end, when two rival gangs, one from the South, the other based in Bombay, clash in a riot of machine gun-wielding villains, Ravi manages to exterminate both gangs. Sasi and his scenarist Damodaran revisit, on a larger scale, familiar territory from their 80s films (cf. Avanazhi, 1986, Inspector Balram, 1991).
