Arasangam movie review on mbn


Economically and strategically important CEOs, Scientists, etc. are assassinated all over India. Since many of such murders take place in Chennai, the Home Minister of Tamil Nadu pressurizes the DGP to speed up the investigation. ATS Officer Manoj is invited to Chennai from Mumbai to help the Tamil Nadu Police Department. He mysteriously disappears during the flight.

The Police Department concludes there is a link between the assassinations and the disappearance of Manoj and hands over both the cases to criminologist and IPS Trainer Arivarasu IPS, who is also a close friend and brother-in-law of Manoj.

Arivarasu's investigation takes him to Toronto, Ontario, Canada where he meets Manoj's lookalike Martin Jayapal, who has hatched a plot to destabilize India. How Arivarasu thwarts his intentions forms the rest of the story.

  • Critical reception

    Rediff wrote "Arasangam (Government) directed by Madhesh and starring 'Captain' Vijaykanth certainly didn't inspire wild hopes of an excellent movie. But fate has a way of throwing you off. This movie is one such pleasant surprise" and also noted "In the end though, its Madhesh's screenplay that wins, showing some signs of intelligence and hard work." Behindwoods wrote "With a script that provides enough fodder for a typical Vijayakanth movie, Director Madesh has done his best to present it with credibility. His attempts succeed in the first half and lose steam in the latter."
