Khaleej Times - City Times - - SOUTHSTARS -

AC­TOR KARTHI’S FILM, Theeran Ad­hi­ragam On­dru, play­ing this week at theatres in the UAE, is a thriller that charts the life of a dar­ing cop and based on real-life in­ci­dents.

Com­ing af­ter Mani Rat­nam’s Kaa­tru Veliyidai, Karthi takes on a role that was de­mand­ing for its ac­tion se­quences and chal­leng­ing for the mul­ti­ple shades of his char­ac­ter.

Di­rected by Vinoth of Sathu­ranga Vet­tai fame, the film also stars Rakul Preet Singh and Ab­hi­manyu Singh. Chart­ing the life of a cop through var­i­ous in­ci­dents that hap­pened in real life from 1995 to 2005, the film was made af­ter dis­cus­sions with cops, who shared in­formed in­sights on the in­ci­dents.

Karthi says that the film gives a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of cops that is sel­dom seen in films, and as hu­man be­ings fac­ing the same chal­lenges, tri­als and tribu­la­tions that oth­ers go through in life. Most ac­tion se­quences have been bor­rowed from what tran­spired in real life too.
