Blood & gore

Adding one more in the list of cop stories is Tharkappu. The movie features Sakthi Vasu in the role of a police officer.

The action thriller is directed by RP Ravi. It speaks speaks against police encounters. The director has tried to convey the need to respect human lives. He drives home the point that violence is no answer to violence.    Sakthi, who had played romantic hero in his earlier films take to an action avatar.

He has trimmed his physique and tried his best to pull it off well in khakhi uniform. The cast also includes Samuthirakani, Sathish Krishnan, Vatsan Chakravarthy, Vaishali Deepak, Amitha, Riyaz Khan, Ganesh Prasath among others.

A serial killer (Riyaz Khan) is killed in an encounter by a team of police officers led by Sakthi on the instructions of his superior.

However the media is made to believe that it was a shoot-out between police and criminals. Meanwhile there area coupe of romantic stories in the form of Sathish Krishnan and Vatsan Chakravarthy.

A series of events leads to a Human Rights officer Samuthirakani investigating the encounter. One fine day, sakthi finds himself in a spot of bother.  Meanwhile for no fault of theirs Sathish and Vatsan finds themselves in the midst of trouble. Why and what happens to them forms the rest.

Sathish's romantic escapades in a train and Vatsan Chakravarthy as a dejected youngster, who wants to end his life impresses. Especially Vatsan emotes well and comes good in humour too.

Sakthi does the job entrusted to him well. Samuthirakani has some fiery dialogues to deliver. He does the job entrusted to him well.

Music is by Faizal, while Jones Anand handles camera work and editing by San Jose.Produced by S Selvamuthu and Manjunath, Tharkappu begins well only to lose its steam as it progresses. But worth a watch for the twists and turns.
