Director Atlee Kumar's Telugu movie "Policeodu" aka "Police," which is the dubbed version of Vijay and Samantha's Tamil film "Theri," has received mixed reviews from the audience in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
The Telugu version of "Theri" was initially titled "Policeodu," producer Dil Raju, who has bought the rights of its dubbed version, changed its title to "Police," just a day before its release. The producer-cum-distributor has released the film in over 350 cinema halls across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
Written by Atlee, "Police" is a commercial action entertainer that deals with a revenge story of an honest sentimental cop (Vijay). After his wife (Samantha) is killed, he decides to save his daughter from a political gang by living as three different characters. How he locks horn with a local politician (Mahendran) to avenge his wife's death forms the crux of the story.
The audience say "Police" has a routine revenge saga, but some interesting twists and commercial ingredients make it a good watch. Vijay has delivered an electrifying performance, which is the main highlight in the film. Samantha, Amy Jackson and Baby Nainika have also done justice to their roles.

Superb first half and engaging second half #Theri #Policeodu Vijay Expected more from Atlee Sam- Radhika conversation in the firsthalf had me in tears .. Scene that tell Atlee's brilliance in handling emotions #Theri #Policeodu #TheriBaby Nainika is too cute .. Like mother like daughter #Theri #Policeodu
Barring some pace issues which is negligible, first half of #Police is perfectly blended with Heroism,Love and sentiment. Very good 1st half Vijay,GVPrakash(BGM),Atlee are Therrific. Lengthy runtime is a let down.Payback scenes could have been handled better.Enjoyable #Policeodu Vijay,Atlee's #Police has all the potential to become a blockbuster of Thupakki magnitude,but pace and length issues made it an abv avg fare
