      An excellent work from the director of most successful action movies - Shaji Kailas and super star Suresh Gopi.The duo has teamed up again after a gap of few years for another superhit -’The Tiger’.They have earlier teamed up and given many super hits such as ‘Ekalavyan’,'F.I.R’ etc. ‘Commissioner’ released in late 90’s was a blockbuster in the Malayalam film industry which gave a break to both the actor and director from where the actor emerged as a superstar. Tiger’ is entirely different from Commissioner.It is an action packed investigation based thriller. Suresh Gopi plays an entirely different role in the movie from his usual police roles. He plays Chandrasekhar ,crime branch DYSP in the film. This character is a cool guy as compared to the rough,angry young man BharatChandran of Commissioner.Unlike Bharatchandran,Chandrasekhar is an officer who makes use of his brain instead of his mouth. He patiently waits for a chance to pounce upon his prey and he uses this ability to solve each case thereby securing the name ‘Tiger’ inside his department.

      The film


      begins with a press conference held by vigilance IG Varma who is a cancer patient.In the conference he tries to bring out the corruptions in his department.But this conference affects MP John Varghese and CM of the state.The very next day morning Varma is found shot dead on his bed with a revolver on his hand.Primary investigations point that he committed suicide bcoz of the thought that he was a cancer patient.All evidence received pointed to his suicide. At this stage the investigation from the side of local police fails and the investigation charge is handed over to crime branch DYSP ‘Tiger Chandrasekhar’ alias Chandrasekhar.He is well known as ‘Tiger’ inside his department as he takes only a short time to solve a case.Chandrasekhar starts his game on the field with his assistant Sudev.On the halfway of their procedure Chandrasekhar finds that the death of IG was not a suicide instead was a cold blooded murder.Meanwhile Suhara and Kishore ,two journalists tracks down the illicit business dealings of revenue minister Varkkichan,

      • who is a silent partner in MP’s illegal dealings.This leads to the missing of the journalists leaving the case more complicated.At this time a new member also joins Chandran’s team,Pothen.As the investigation procedure moves forward three member team finds Suhara in an unconscious state from a thick forest where Kishore was burned alive.While taking Suhara from the forest to the hospital in an ambulance the three member gang is being attacked by an armed force.After a narrow escape a doubt arises in Chandrasekhar that one among his cops is a spy. Hold your breath and start watching carefully from here.The real hunt along with the suspense begins now .Suhara loses her ability to speak as she was in a shock of witnessing Kishore’s murder. Through Suhara, how Chandrasekhar cracks the mystery forms the rest of the story.

        The most highlight of the film is the unexpectable suspense that is maintained till the climax .Its really a tough job to maintain the suspense till the end of a film. The credit goes to both, the scriptwriter

        Unnikrishnan and the director. Shaji Kailas has done a perfect job in doing the movie. From the very beginning the film provides a shot by shot suspense to the viewers and the main suspense breaks out only in the climax.Unlike usual Suresh Gopi films hard hitting dialougues are absent in the movie.Editing by donmax and camera tricks used in the film are surely remarkable and appreciable.

        The cast includes Janardhanan, Suvarna, Subair, Sudheer, Saikumar, Gopika, Vineeth Kumar, Sreeraman etc. Suresh Gopi has given a very impressive performance as Chandrasekhar.Again he proves that he is the only one who is more fit for police roles in malayalam film industry.Even though Rajmohan Unnithan makes a debut through this film,he has given a very good performance as the CM.Short but excellent fight sequences by Mafia Sasi and Anal Arasu does not drag the movie for long time like usual Shaji Kailas movies.The only song by shaan is also good.In short this film will be a different treat for those who love police movies, especially for Suresh Gopi fans.
