Watched 8 Thottakkal, debut film by director Sri Ganesh. The official gun of a young police officer gets stolen, and it is eventually lands up in the hands of a group of people who rob a bank. The film shows the efforts to catch the robbers and recover the gun. Though a part of the narrative is in the format of a thriller, the main focus of the film is on the character development of the leader of the gang, an old man, played by MS Bhaskar.
The actor who plays as the police officer (I think he is a newcomer) has the same sort of bewildered expressions throughout the length of the movie; But that doesn't matter much because the real hero of the film is MS Bhaskar, and it is worth a watch for his performance. I remember seeing him in a few small roles in Tamil films in the past, but this is the first time I see him in a major role.
