After a long gap Vijayakanth gave a meaningful, controlled action packed performance in Arasangam, thanks to its director Madhesh. The movie starts in a quite different way. A milkman suddenly takes out the gun and shoots a genius in the initial scene and in another scene, a top scientist is killed by a college student inside the college auditorium in a shocking manner. To nab the real culprit behind this new style of terrorism, the Tamil Nadu Police invites top cop Manoj (Biju Menon) from Mumbai, but he disappears in mid air he is on his way to Chennai. Finally, Arivarasan comes…
Araviarasu (Vijayakanth) is a criminologist working as the chief trainer at the national police training college in Assam. He is both physically and mentally balanced person and always rightly uses his brain to catch the criminals wherever they hide.
Immediately, Arivu gets in to action and fastening the investigation. It leads him to Chandru (Rahul Dev), a guy who is the in charge for killing off top scientists and software experts of future India using innocent people to murder them. But Chandru escapes to Canada and the same has forced Arivu to go to Canada.
In Toronto, a sexy cop Lara (Sheryl Brindo) comes to Arivu's help and later falls in love with him as usual and finally our captain return to India with the culprit Martin (Biju Menon-duel role), who is behind all those blasts and deaths in India.
It seems like the captain underplays in most of the scenes and just doing things what the director instructs. However, it works out well and gives more authenticity to his role. There is not enough scope to perform for Navneetha Kaur and Sheryl in this hero oriented action masala. They have just two songs and the same are enough to show Navneet's and Sheryl's glamour. Biju Menon as bad guy is promising, but his Malayalam slang is irritating.
Overall Arasangam is worth watching and much better than recently released Vijayakanth films.
