Salute Movie Review

Corrupt police personnel and how they corrupt the legal system for the benefit of their political masters have long been fodder for films. It’s so common that it’s become a bit of a cliché. However, a few films stick out because they call out the men in khaki who use their power for all the wrong reasons. Visaranai, directed by Vetrimaran, and Anand Mahadevan’s Mai Ghat, based on Udayakumar’s death in custody in 2005, are two such examples. Salute, written by Bobby Sanjay and directed by Rosshan Andrews, stars Dulquer Salmaan and once again puts police officers under the microscope.

The film doesn’t spare any time in introducing its protagonist. In the first scene, Dulquer Salmaan’s character walks into a police station and inquires about the circumstances of a three-year-old murder case. Dulquer plays Aravind Karunakaran, a police inspector who has returned from a long absence to investigate a murder case. The plot is not linear, and we are perplexed by the cops’ placing evidence in the forest. As the film progresses, we learn that an investigation team led by DySP Ajith Karunakaran—Aravind’s elder brother—is working on a murder case and is under intense pressure from the ruling party to solve it within a short time frame.

The film depicts the investigation team’s framing of an innocent man named Murali. Even though Aravind opposes his elder brother to side with the truth, he is isolated by the department. Aravind, unable to cope with the immoral system, takes a long sabbatical and removes himself from his brother and family. The film then returns to the present, when Aravind, still haunted by the guilt of imprisoning an innocent man, attempts to reopen the old case. The film then follows Aravind’s lone endeavour to find the true perpetrator.

The film is told in a realistic manner without dramatising the events, and it remains focused on the film’s central theme. There are no dramatic twists in the film, nor does it veer into unnecessary emotional passages. Instead, Salute focuses on the guilt-ridden Aravind, who is desperate to ensure the innocent Murali’s release. Salute also depicts the professional pressures that police officers confront when they must break from ethical methods of investigation in order to keep their jobs. Salute is a cut above the investigative thrillers we’ve seen in Malayalam films thus far. The climax passages in which Aravind gets dangerously close to apprehending the true culprit are particularly memorable.

Dulquer Salmaan gives a convincing performance as a man who can’t deal with the lies that surround him. Even when he is helpless in the face of the police force’s hierarchical structure, he maintains his cool. Mano J. Jayan also does a good job with his character.Diana Penty, a Bollywood actor, had little to do in the film.
