Arjun, Archana, Hema, Mayilsamy, Kota Sreenivasa Rao, Santhanabharathi, Ponnambalam
Maasi (Arjun) is an honest police officer who is an encounter specialist. He has a team who works with him and has enemies inside and outside his office including the commissioner (Santhanabharathi) who is hand-in-glove with the goondas and politicians. How Maasi handles a handful of villains (Kota, Pradeep Rawat, Ponnambalam and many others) and cleans up the city forms the rest of this predictable story.
Maasi romances two girls, sings duets, has a doting mother for providing sentiments, Mayilsamy for comedy and packed with fast-paced action scenes. Sadly the film fails to establish a genuine emotional connection to the characters. And without that depth, you really couldn't care less about whose blood is getting spilled.
Watch it if you're a fan of Arjun, he is charismatic, look fit at this age and has an alluring appeal that lifts this film considerably.
