Not very much has changed in terms of formula. Don't expect anything in terms of plot or acting when you watch this action mass masala film.

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.

Verdict: Tedious
