The industry of Southern India has been an emerging industry with some of the greatest hits to its name. DSP is a 2022 Tamil film released in theatres on December 2nd, 2022. The movie is an action comedy movie written and directed by Ponram and was produced side by side by Karthikeyan Santhanam. Stone Bench Films had the production rights to the film.
The movie stars Vijay Sethupathi, Ilavarasu Anukreethy Vas, Prabhakar, Pugazh, Shivani Narayanan, Singampulli, and Deepa Shankar, who bring out the best comic scenes along with the action. The film was prior tentatively named VJS46, but later on, it was announced that the title of the movie would be DSP on November 10th, 2022. Anukreety Vas who is also crowned the Femina Miss India 2018 is the lead actress in the movie alongside Sethupathi.
Indeed the fans of Sethupathi were waiting for the release of the film, and the film had great expectations, but unfortunately, the film didn’t do well with only a box office collection of thirteen crores and was subjected to negative reviews by the critics and audiences as well. Many found the story to be overly filled with elements, amateurish dialogues, or the casting to be non-complimentary.
With a running time of 137 minutes which is 2 hours and 26 minutes, the movie makes a good watch. The movie follows the story of the son of a flower business man Vascodagama who is a flamboyant and fun-loving person. Contrary to his nature, his father Murugapandi is a typical middle-class father who is always overly cautious and concerned for his son and desperately tries to urge him to get a government job.
He is tired of his father’s constant banters and leaves the town in the name of looking for a government job. Whereas in reality he is enjoying his life and having fun with his friends. We also get to see the budding romance between the characters of Sethupathi and Vas. Along with the melodious compositions of D. Imman, they added light to the duo’s story. At the same time, his family is looking for an appropriate groom for his sister. They go through various potential grooms for his sister, which follows a chain of comical scenes.
The paradise is interrupted when Vascodagama crosses paths with a dangerous goon who is based in Chennai named Muttai Ravi. Muttai when literally translated to English means “Egg” which is altered and clarified by his background of his family being the supplier of eggs to the whole area. They both proceed their rage into a fight, and due to the fear and power of Muttai, Vascodagama had to flee the town and couldn’t;t even attend his sister’s wedding due to the fear of being killed by him.
Vascodagama in the hopes of taking revenge and catching Muttai returns back as the DSP of the police and is known for his peculiar and comical ways of working. He is shown handling his team and has a strong persona as a hero. Sethupathi is adored by his fans for his portrayal of a cop-based look, regardless of the character development.
He proceeds to formulate a plan to nab Muttai, which extends a thrilling and action-packed plot for the viewers. The story is the summation of how Vascodagama wins over the evil Muttai and succeeds in his plan of taking revenge on the goon.
