The detective film has a uniqueness. The audience will also be investigating officers there. Each audience will be looking forward to finding the culprit before the protagonist. Salute accurately addresses the audience's inquisitiveness. 'Martin-Sheeba murder case, crime number 252/17' - This is the case with DYSP Ajith Karunakaran and SI Arvind Karunakaran. The police are under pressure to find the culprit in the murder case which is taking place within the limits of Maranallur station. The onus is on the police to prove this case by any means in the context of the election. It is through this pressure that the story of the film unfolds.
Manoj K Jayan will play the role of DYSP Ajith Karunakaran. Aravind, played by Dulquer Salman, is also the younger brother of DYSP Ajith. Chettan is Aravind's hero. Aravind has the urge and sincerity to investigate a case with Chetna who instigated khaki. However, the Martin-Sheeba murder case separates the brothers. The salute goes on to add the flavor of an investigation thriller becoming an emotional thriller at the same time. It is there that the audience will once again experience the excellence and talent of the screenwriter's Bobby and Sanjay. The Manoj K Jayan-Dulqal Salman combo will add to the fun.
Manoj K Jayan-Dulqal Salman Chemistry on screen is beautiful. Manoj K Jayan's performance shows the brilliance of experience as Dulquar progresses with his usual stylish performance. Manoj K. Jayan has brought to the screen the power, affection, helplessness, and vassal of a police officer named Ajith Karunakaran. After a break, the audience can enjoy Manoj K. Jayan's great performance in the salute. Manoj K. Jayan can be seen in the salute in many shades, as an old man who confidently tells his brother, 'Study and learns from me ... there is nothing wrong, and as a police officer who uneasily reminds us that 'our career should not end in the mastermind of a criminal.
The salute goes beyond a mere investigative picture to the perspectives of the injustice that our state system has perpetuated over the years. On the one hand, some lose their free skies and proud lives as a result of pressure from those in power. On the other hand, the police have to deal with the pressure, tension, and fear of having to act as the pawn of the state. On the other hand, some criminals slip away from the law by cleverly fooling these two groups in parallel. Everyone has some justification for what they do. Director Roshan Andrews has turned this complex system into a beautiful thriller. The director has accurately and meticulously copied the strong script into the film. The director was accompanied by cameraman Aslam K. Purayil, editor Sreekar Prasad and music director Jacques Bijoy.
Jacques Bijoy has performed the background music neatly without a song or mass BGM unnecessarily to add flavor to the investigation. Salute becomes a movie that satisfies the audience as well as the editor and the cinematographer stabilize the view with unbroken cuts and views. The slow pace at the beginning of the film becomes dynamic towards the second half. Editing progresses with the feeling of speeding up the film with a slippery slope. The film stars Alansier, Binu Pappu, Diana Penty, Indrans, Ganapathi, Sudheer Karamana, Saikumar, Sania Iyyappan, and Lakshmi Gopalaswamy. Indrans, Sudheer Karamana, and Saikumar's presence and performance were excellent though it was a very small role. In a nutshell, Salute is a clean thriller with no unnecessary conflicts, no punchy jokes, or clichd masalas. Undoubtedly, the face of the murderer will be the most annoying to the audience after watching the movie.
