     17Topical film referring, in part, to notorious reallife 
     18sandalwood smuggler Veerappan, 
     19operating on the Karnataka-Tamil Nadu border, 
     20who hit the news following a series of violent 
     21encounters with the police in the early 90s. 
     22Like crime journalism dramatising the 
     23confrontations between the good and bad 
     24while retaining a veneer of support for the 
     25legal system, the film is formally dedicated to 
     26the police who lost their lives in their efforts to 
     27capture Veerappan. However, it begins with a 
     28scene in which Veerappan (Devaraj) discusses 
     29and gives his approval to the production. A 
     30priest then explains Veerappan’s life as being a 
     31consequence of his impoverished childhood. 
     32This leads to the next character, Nayakan 
     33(Lokesh), formerly Veerappan’s employer, but 
     34now his enemy, who points to the latter’s 
     35Robin Hood-type inclinations. Veerappan’s 
     36revenge for the rape of his sister and his 
     37encounters with the police then follow. The 
     38film ends with a pair of brave police officers 
     39setting out to get him, but he eludes them.
