It’s about an upright cop, who is ruthless against law breakers. Pitted against a gangster who is out to destroy his personal and professional life, the cop has to use both his brawn and brain to survive.

But after the intriguing cat and mouse game between the cop and the thug, the climax comes as a bit of a let down.
