Sardar begins in
1988, with title credits in which we learn about a spy who has gone rogue. The
action then moves to the present when we meet his son Vijay Prakash (Karthi), a
publicity-hungry cop who is haunted by the wraith of being a traitor's son. When
Samira (Laila), an activist campaigning against the privatization of water
bodies dies mysteriously, he tries to find out the killers only to learn a
complex web of lies and deceit that has put the nation in danger. And the only

PS Mithran's Sardar
is an efficiently made spy movie, which, despite a typical story arc, manages
to keep us engaged till the end. As he did with his previous films, the

that changes the course of the narrative.

The film has almost
managed the same momentum from start to end except for a few instances where we
get an information overload but that also helps with the detailing in the


Lastly, Sardar has
a thought-provoking point with the right blend of entertainment in the form of
heroic scenes and action sequences which make it a must-watch.
