Rakul and Karthi

Dheeraj (Karthee) joins as DSP of Tamil Nadu police department and he is transferred frequently for his sincerity and his approach of solving cases. He is married to Priya (Rakul Preet Singh) whom he loved after his training and they live happily together. After his transfer to some place in Tamil Nadu, he comes across a peculiar case which involves theft and violent killing of people and after reading the case file he becomes restless and starts investigating the case which focuses on dacoits. Their crimes never stops even while he is investigating and they only leave fingerprints as evidence and nothing more to nab them. He starts to roam all-over India with his team to gather clues and nab them. To his bad luck, something bad happens to his family and his colleague’s family due to dacoits. What happened next and how he happened to nab them forms the rest of the story.

Cast and performance

Karthi as Dheeraj is perfect fit for the role and his mannerisms and body language are believable and definitely this role will be one of the memorable roles in his career. Rakul Preet Singh as Priya is nice and she played the role of a hyper and bubbly girl. She complemented Karthi well in romantic sequences. Abhimanyu Singh is terrific as chief of dacoit gang. Sreenivas is good as a policeman in Rajasthan.

Khakee is a film which runs as a battle between Police of Madras and dacoits from Rajasthan. There’s been a lot of research that went into making of this movie. It is clearly seen in the movie. When a ruthless gang from Rajasthan attack houses on highways in south India. They attack the houses so ruthlessly that it makes others fear that even while imagining. This affects a sincere police officer who feels guilty for not nabbing them. He starts investigating the case and he suffers a personal loss and it triggers him even more and he then starts his game to nab them. The main asset of the movie is its screenplay which is written so convincingly without taking any of the deviance to make it more viable commercially. Director and writer H. Vinoth has done a fantabulous job in making this movie. This movie might not entertain those who expect comedy and other commercial elements that we have been seeing regularly in all the movies. To summarize, Khakee is a sensible and honest film which shows the powers, limitations and challenges faced by police.
