Lathi means baton. It is one more addition to Indian-Tamil police-based action-drama movie list. The movie will stream in both languages – Tamil, Hindi and Telugu. Critics have given their reviews about the movie in a gist of gaps in the storyline in terms of rationale to connect dots and being a very cliched plot. However, the cinematography, action sequence, mellifluous music and choreography are its strong suites.


The plot follows the unfortunate plight of an honest cop named Muruganantham. One night, while on duty, a woman named Pavithra enters the police station to file a complaint of harassment and abuse. Muruganantham locks the complaint with details of a prime suspect named Vellai. It turns out that he is the son of an underworld kingpin. But the very same night, Pavithra gets physically attacked and succumbs to her wounds in the hospital.

He gets suspended from his duty due to misconduct with a civilian. After spending his time under service suspension, he resumes his service and is asked to interrogate a suspect through physical remand by a senior officer.

The news reaches Don’s ears, and Muruganantham is chased by his henchmen, finally getting trapped in an under-construction building. It turns out that Muruganantham set a trap to avenge the death of a girl named Pavithra. The henchmen are now in an isolated place as baited by him. He has already dumped the building with weapons strategically.

With this, he is able to inflict causalities with guns blazing and lathi swinging but meanwhile, his son is at risk as he is buried alive by the gangsters. In the end, he ultimately sets his son free and kills the kingpin and his son.
