quick review:

Policegiri has yet another cop with a golden heart who loves to bash people. Interestingly, he's part of the system too!

More Movie Info

I guess the only actor left to play the badass, Robinhood-cum-Krishna cop was Sanjay Dutt. With Policegiri that's done and dusted too. That should answer all your questions about being loud, full of action, predictable, etc. There are tinges of surprise with the course Sanjay Dutt's character Rudra takes in the end.

Also, some of the dialogue has spark while other lines are plain lame. However Prakash Raj, as the typical, villain politician Nagori, does his bit with such conviction that you can watch more of him even though it feels like you have seen him only in this avatar. His comic timing is impeccable and so is his dialogue delivery.

On the other hand, for about the first half hour of the film, Sanjay Dutt sounds like he's talking while chewing on a betel nut or a paan. After that, you get used to it. The rest of his act is pure action do. In the same vein, Prachi Desai does what a woman in an action film is supposed to do - look pretty and give the hero's conscience a nudge if and when the need arises.

There are bleak hints of wisdom when Nagori refers to how difficult it is for him to cater to his ego or irony when Sanjay Dutt questions how senior officers and politicians can support someone who has been booked under a terrorist act. More comedy than irony, actually.

Considering Policegiri banks heavily on its action sequences, the action, related editing and post-production work on the action are all pretty awful. In competition for being awful are the song and dance routines, including the music.

So, but for the saving grace in terms Prakash Raj's performance and a few lines, Policegiri has barely anything going for it.

meetu ur ratings for the movie are very low,,,,then why u have said even the kern wait for dvd,,,,i have expected worst then this

Going tomorrow, Thanks. Full credit to you

Well, you can always rely on Prakash Raj. He is the consummate villain. The best I've seen after Amrish Puri.

@Anup It was a little better than 'Watch if you have nothing better to do'. That's why.

@Cheetalm huh? I said watch when on DVD. :P

@Brendan true that.
