Another weekend, another South Indian superhit being adapted into a Hindi remake. Director K.S. Ravikumar’s ‘Policegiri’ opens with a note of gratitude for Sanjay Dutt (playing hero cop DCP Rudra) for completing the film during “trying times”, which I thought was an apt way to describe all those days he must have spent cursing himself for signing on to this project. This movie also stars Prakash Raj (arch-nemesis Nagori) playing a comical villain with a South Indian accent – a part that puts him right up there with bubbly, yet feisty, North-Indian girl Anushka Sharma & coming-of-age young adult Ranbir Kapoor in the Diverse Role-Potrayer Awards. Add a love interest (Prachi Desai as Sehar) three decades our hero’s junior and yeah… you’ve got a real winner on your hands here!
