In a seemingly never ending season of dubbed ventures, Dhoolpet will be the newest one on the list. This high budget, slick movie is yet another in the list of serious and sensitive chronicles of the soft underbelly of any city's underworld. This gangster movie is raw and in your face. But this brilliantly crafted movie is not above violence but about the dynamic of violence.

Directed by Selvaraghav, whose movie have always have a brilliant brooding as he throws the spotlight on the darker shades of human living, Dhoolpet too is another of his typical ventures.

A dubbed version of his Tamil movie, Puthupettai, the film shadows the shadowy world of a young gangster. It follows both his inner and external life.

Selvaraghava is a serious filmmaker of his generation. His bigest strength is his ability to make sensitive movie within a commercial format. His previous movies (in Tamil) Thulluvatho Ilamai and 7 G Rainbow Colony were all dubbed in Telugu and ran successfully. His success is based on the fact that human emotions are universal and goes beyond regional boundaries.

Dhollpet has the tag Survival of the fittest. The movie takes of on a small boy who is almost an errand man for politicians is forced to take up violence and become a gangster. The dark world of his progress and his evolution as a person is what gets a beautiful treatment.

The movie is a dark, dire focus on the underworld. But it is a view with empathy.

Dhanush, Rajinikanth's son-in-law and Selvaraghav's brother, is the hero.  He seems an inspired choice for a difficult character. Sonia Agarwal  plays his wife.  Sneha plays the powerful role of a commercial sex worker.

This movie maybe a major turning point in Sneha's career.

The film's other strength will be the gritty and realistic music of Yuvan Shankar Raja. The tunes were recorded abroad and the songs are already a hit. The song that Kamal Haasan has sung is already a chart-buster.

Aravind Krishna has cranked the movie.

Dhoolpet comes to Telugu on May 19.
