Playing the role of police officers still remains very popular among our heroes in Malayalam. But these days, they are more interested in the roles of cops with a shade of negativity.
In all probabilities, the trend was popularized by M Padhmakumar's critically acclaimed film Vargam with Prithviraj in which the hero played the role of a police officer who had no qualms about accepting bribes and turning a blind eye towards crimes. Dileep too is going to play a very similar role in his new film Inspector Garuda.
In this comedy film, directed by Johnny Anthony, Dileep plays the role of a young man who always dreamt of becoming a cop. He finds out that selection process isn't all that fair and just. There are rates for each post- Rs 10 Lakhs for sub-Inspector and Rs 15 Lakhs for Circle Inspector. He decides to become a CI. Within four months, he recovers his "investments" and before the end of the year, he earns the dubious distinction of having been transferred a massive 24 times!!!
Dileep plays the role of CI Madhavan Kutty, the corrupt police officer in the film.
