Puli Vesham has RK taking on a different role in anti-negative role. He plays the role of a person, who is ready to do anything for money and lands up bumping off any bigwigs in town. And then, there is a sincere assistant commissioner of police (Karthik) looking out for a right opportunity to bump off few persons, who were responsible for the death of his close friend.
He assigns the job to RK and makes sure everything goes perfectly. A girl (Sadha) with a mysterious past pretending to be a desolated person comes to RK. These three characters are coalesced together and it forms crux of the story.
Being such a versatile actor, it’s nice and quite surprising to see that Karthik has accepted to perform supporting role opposite RK. Well, he has been an actor, who goes strongly by the content and role, not star values. RK has exerted his best efforts to win the applause. His stunt sequences during second half is awesome and his emoting skill needs special mention. Sadha looks beautiful and indeed does a neat job with her performance. The point where her true colours are revealed is a big surprise for the audiences. Divya Padmini needs a special welcome and she suits well for the homely girl image.
Compared to first half, the second half is gripping and more engrossing. It involves more twists and turns in the plot. The climax is heart-wrenching and is yet done with justification.
