Storyline: Love creates a new drug called Speed which was used by Hitler during WW2 to transform humans into superhumans. Agillan lost his wife and quits his job as RAW Agent.
A guy named love creates a new drug which enhances human ability to fullest.He tries to sell the drug to terrorist groups and therefore leading to destruction of millionaire of lives.Now its up to an Indian raw agent named akhilan to stop him at any cost.
A simple but an effective storyline. A refreshing action-sci-fi that had a few flaws. First of all it was unnecessary the lead actor playing the both good and negative roles. That gives the impression how character obsessed these actors are. Yep the negative role was powerful, so if someone better actor in the part would have been much better for cinema. That’s the major setback in this and the rest of the film is enjoyable.
This is the story of an ex Indian agent who brought in back for a special mission. The death of his wife and this new organisation has something in common. So he has to find out what’s it and if they are the same gang, then it’ll be the revenge time. The remaining film is a cat and mouse game, and how it all ends was told with a final face off between two men.
I liked the story, but many scenes were so cliché. Besides, the songs were disadvantaged. Indians might enjoy that, not the international audience, because it disturbed the rhythm of the fine story of an agent. The stunts were okay, the cinematography was good. Actors, actresses, all were excellent. Even that sci-fi theme was impressive. Somehow they have missed to turn it into a masterpiece. So once watchable film, a decent agent film like this won’t come easy from India.
