"Pokiri" is a Tamil remake of this year's biggest Telugu hit of the same title which featured Mahesh Babu in the lead. Some changes have been made in the Tamil re-make to suit the Tamil Nadu audiences. The strength of the story lies in maintaining the suspense of the true identity of the hero till the end. It is a mix of action and romance with a message about the duty and responsibility of the police force.
The hero (Vijay), a young IPS officer, acts as an undercover cop to weed out the anti-socials who are ruling the roost. A gang controlled by underworld don, Prakash Raj, operates with impunity. Vijay makes "Fight evil with evil" as his credo and is out to eliminate the gang outside the pale of law with indomitable courage and ingenuity.
Asin works as an instructor at an aerobic centre run by Nasser, a retired circle inspector, who is proud of being a sincere and straightforward member of the police force. The girl falls in love with Vijay.
How the don comes to know the identity of Vijay and how the mafia perishes form the climax.
This is the first Tamil film to be directed by choreographer-cum-actor Prabhu Deva. He has earlier directed two Telugu films - "Neevuvastanantae Nenodantana" and "Pournami".
"Pokiri" has all the commercial elements in the right mix. Asin, after Sivakasi, teams up with Vijay again.
Mani Sharma has scored seven songs in "Pokiri." One of them is a remix of yesteryear hit 'Vasanthamullai Polae.' Nirav Shah handles the camera. Some song sequences were filmed in Australia.
The film is slated for release during Pongal.
