The plot of this movie is pretty simple, which comes back to haunt Paayum Puli especially in the first half. Vishal plays a police officer (ACP) who wants to clean up his city, which is hounded by numerous ruffians.
Though Vishal is one of the overrated actors in Tamil cinema, the efforts he has taken to portray an unusual cop is pretty much evident. His character has been penned with a touch of uniqueness, for which Vishal has done justice to. Velraj's cinematography too is a major plus as the sequences shot during the night are administered well.
Overall View: While the movie crouches itself in the first half, it pounces really well in the second and manages to save the day.
