-‘Jayam’ Ravi, who wowed everyone by playing an upright police officer in ‘Thani Oruvan’, is back in khaki in ‘Adanga Maru’, a film which attempts to convey the message ‘justice delayed is justice denied’.
It seems director Karthik Thangavel is upset with negative happenings in the society. His anger towards evils is visible on the screen and he conveys strong messages through the protagonist.
Subash (Jayam Ravi) is a sub-inspector of police and he aspires to become an IPS officer. A honest cop, his life revolves around his family and his girlfriend (Raashi Khanna).
One day, a girl from a middle-class family is found dead and Subash investigates the case. However, his senior (Mime Gopi) asks Subash to close the case by terming it as suicide.
But Subash refuses to pay heed and arrests four youngsters who were involved in her murder. But the youth are strongly supported by a superior officer (Sampath) and they manage to come out of jail.
Also, Subash gets suspendd from the department for being unable to prove the charges against the four. Even as a dejected Subash returns to home, he is shocked to the core to find his family members murdered.
Subash now takes a vow to teach a fitting lesson to the ones behind these acts. Good at handling gadgets and a hacking expert, he starts playing mind games with the evil ones. He also takes the help of the public to achieve his mission.
‘Jayam’ Ravi delivers nothing but his best and shines in each and every frame. Raashi Khanna does whatever justice is possible, while every other member of the cast, including Sampath and Mime Gopi, delivers goods.
Sam CS could have infused more pace in the music, while editing is good. Despite lacking powerful antagonists and a loose romantic track, ‘Adanga Maru’ leaves an impact with us in an intelligent manner.
