Ice-cold and business-like, low on emotion despite the inflamed passions and muscle-flexing on display, and amoral to the core even with a backdrop of crime and punishment - and that's what is so good about it.
Chekka Chivantha Vaanam feels like the work of a fresh director with an impressive understanding about the craft of filmmaking.
If the initial set up instantly reminds you of The Godfather, you are not wrong. And it is intentional. But it is only as the plot unfolds that you realise that Mani Ratnam is giving a delicious twist to the classic gangster tale.
As with Kamal Haasan's writing, Mani Ratnam's partially stylised dialogue - with its staccato rhythms - needs actors who can pull it off. Only a few in this cast manage it.
