Ayogya (2019) starring Vishal and Raashi Khanna has an interesting oneliner, but due to a bad screenplay turns out to be a total dud. Karnan (Vishal) is a ‘corrupt’ police inspector who values money over everything else and is unapologetic about his behaviour. In the beginning this anti-hero characterisation makes us sit up, unfortunately very soon the character gets lost and from there it is all downhill.

Though it is cliché, a rowdy after a life-changing incident turning a new leaf like in Vijay’s Jilla (2014), is an engaging story to watch. Here, there was no such convincing incident. The hero suddenly fights with the villain (played effortlessly by R.Parthiban), only to patch-up in the next scene, and then abruptly turning out to be a selfless saint in the end. The climax was completely unexpected and that was the only good thing about the film.

Director K. S. Ravikumar who comes as an honest constable and Yogi Babu are underutilised, to say the least. For me, the first twenty minutes was enjoyable when the film appeared to be a comedy one, after that it becomes unbearable once the doltish story starts. Please spare yourself from this film!
