Iraivan movie review


Jayam Ravi is working as a police officer in Chennai. He decides what to do with the criminals without even obeying the higher authorities and beats them to death.

Encounters are also included in this and even the police approach Ravi with fear. Ravi’s close friend Naren supports his friend no matter what he does.

A new case comes to Jayam Ravi while investigating many cases. Rahul Bose, a psycho killer who kidnaps and kills young girls in Chennai, writes a letter challenging the police with each murder.

Jayam Ravi, who has the ability to track down any major criminal, discovers his whereabouts and arrests Rahul. But during this Naren is attacked by Rahul and dies.

Feeling guilty for not being able to save his friend, Jayam Ravi quits the police force. Meanwhile, Rahul, who is in prison, escapes from there and commits the next murder. Jayam Ravi goes to Rahul’s hiding place to avenge the killer of his friend and attacks him.

The police who follow shoot Rahul dead. And when the problem is over and the city is calm, some more young women are brutally murdered in the style of Rahul.

The killer also threatens Ravi through a letter. Confused as to what is happening, the police again start looking for the culprit. What happens next forms the rest of the story.


Director Ahmed stays true to the genre and does not have many deviations except for a romantic track with Nayanthara that does not hamper the story much.

After a slow drive in the first hour, the film picks up pace towards the interval and manages to bring in a fine twist.

Jayam Ravi has performed exceptionally well, especially during the emotional scenes.

He shoulders the entire movie. Narain does a fine job in the short duration that he appears.

Rahul Bose is terrifying as the villain. Rest of the cast including Nayanthara and Vijayalakshmi have done their part well.

The film is technically strong in terms of cinematography and editing, Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music and BGM adds more value to the thrill in the film.
