<i>Vargam</i> - Review

Cop roles suit Prithviraj perfectly. He has acted as a cop in two other movies. Kerala audience so far thought that police roles were meant only for Suresh Gopi, but now this young man is getting ready to carry over the name. In Police, Prithviraj's acting talents were wasted. In this movie, Padmakumar's magic woven over the screenplay must be given special applause. Prithviraj's acting and expressions have added more spice to the movie.

Solomon (Prithviraj) is not a straight forward cop. He is a corrupt man. This corruption is due to the unhappy and miserable childhood that he has led. When young, his father had left the family and this forced Solomon to shift to an orphanage. He grew under the care of a priest (Rajan P. Dev). All this and his father's betrayal has made him stone hearted and devoid of any emotions or feelings. All he yearns for is to make money and earn wealth. Though a cop by profession, he has ties with all under world ruffians. He is very close to drug peddler Vavachan ( Vijayaraghavan). Due to this friendship, he goes as far as killing Vavachan's worst enemy Ummachan's( Devan) brother Dennis in a police encounter.

He then gets transferred to a small place near Kasargod. Two underworld dons Abu Backer Haji (Captain Haji) and his son Sharif (Ananthu) rule the roost there. He tries to get close to them and he does. But that friendship doesn't last long and he gets beaten up very badly. After this incident he changes completely and gets to know the difference between the good and the bad and realises that money and wealth are not everything in this world. While he is trying to change, Ummachan longs to seek revenge on him for killing his brother. The movie has an exciting climax where we will know whether Solomon survives Ummachan's wrath.

Prithviraj has literally lived in the character. Though Renuka Menon has a small role to play, it is a sweet and effective one. Devan and Vijayaraghavan too have played their characters well. This movie is one of the best among Prithviraj's action movies!
