Films set around policemen has always made it big. It is now the turn of actor-filmmaker Samuthirakani to don the khaakhi. Kaaval, directed by C V Nagendran, features Samuthuirakani in the role of an honest police officer, who is committed to finish off anti-social elements.

There is also Vimal and Punnagi Poo Geetha in the cast. Vimal plays a happy go-lucky youngster who gets into a spot of bother for one act of his. How Samuthirakani bails him out of the trouble forms the crux. Interestingly, the movie begins in a police station in Neelangarai where a group of policemen indulge in all corrupt activities.

They go hammer and tongs to help a don involved in contract killings. Their sons including Vimal and Kumki Ashwin are callous and spend their lives roaming around. Vimal comes across an event manager Punnagai Poo Geetha and falls for her instantly.

Meanwhile a senior police officer is appointed as police officer to bump off the killer. Vimal gets struck between the two. How Samuthirakani manages to achieve the mission forms the crux.

Samuthirakani has done a good job as police officer. He has played his part well and sets up the momentum well. Vimal has nothing much to do while Punnagai Poo Geetha is okay. 

Music by G V Prakash is average. The movie begins on a racy note. Nagendran has done enough research on contract killings. But at places the dialogues glorifying men in khakhi sounds cliched.

The filmmaker has managed to sustain the interest by providing enough twists and turns. Kaaval is a tribute to honest police officers.

Royal salute
