Murugavel (Vijay Antony) is a police constable who wants to create a positive change in the society. But there is a problem in the home itself, as his younger brother prefers to be a juvenile criminal.
Murugavel’s brother works for underworld gangster Meesai Padma (Dheena) and does not reform himself despite sincere efforts by Murugavel. In the meantime, Murugavel is promoted as sub-inspector and transferred to Chennai.
A police officer with passion and determination, Murugavel kills his own brother after finding him as a henchman. This act of him promotes him as inspector of police.
He is also on a mission to teach a lesson to Meesai Padma, who indulges teenagers in crimes since juveniles will face only less punishment.
In his path to achieve the mission, Murugavel has to face many hurdles, especially from his colleagues. But he instills pride in the minds of police personnel and teaches them the importance of being honest.
For the first time in his career, Vijay Antony, the music composer-turned-actor, has played a police officer and has performed well in khaki. But he has to improve himself still in action scenes.
Nivetha Pethuraj as a Chennai-based police officer is a scream and her dialogue delivery is superb. Dheena has once again been given a meaty role after Vada Chennai and has shined.
Besides playing the lead role, Vijay Antony has also scored the music and the background score is racy and riveting. Other technical departments too have supported the movie well.
Director Ganeshaa, a former associate of S S Rajamouli, has come up with an out and out commercial entertainer. Certain mass scenes defy logic, but you won’t feel them odd if you are fan of such movies.
Thimiru Pudichavan is aimed at catering to the tastes of so-called B & C audience and would serve its purpose well.
