As Shakthi unravels the mystery, he finds himself in the middle of a dangerous game of power and survival.

The movie opens with Shakthi (Vishal), a private detective, receiving a call from Deepa (Trisha Krishnan), a woman who wants him to investigate her fake marriage to a wealthy NRI, Arun Vijay (Vikram). During their initial investigation, Shakthi and Deepa discover that Arun is not who he claims to be and that he is involved in a sinister conspiracy. They try to unearth the truth, but soon their lives are in danger when they start getting threats from the perpetrators.

As they delve deeper into the conspiracy, they meet a returning NRI and his family. Shakthi and Deepa discover that the NRI's family has their share of secrets and that they may be connected to Arun's nefarious plans. The story takes several twists and turns, and Shakthi's attempts to solve the mystery lead him on dangerous chases and intense action sequences.

The film's tone is generally serious, and the action sequences are artfully choreographed. The cinematography is impressive, with the director using different camera angles to create a sense of urgency and suspense. The movie's cinematography is particularly evident in the crucial chase sequences through the narrow streets of Bangkok.

The music and background score by Yuvan Shankar Raja is another highlight of the movie. The songs are well-placed and add to the overall narrative of the movie. The track 'Oru Kannil' stands out as a particularly melodious and soulful composition.

The performances of the three leads are noteworthy as well. Vishal as the tough and determined private detective Shakthi is convincing in his role. He is ably supported by Trisha Krishnan, who delivers a standout performance as the damsel in distress, Deepa. Sunaina, in a brief role, manages to make an impact.

Manoj Bajpayee, in his Tamil debut, is excellent as the film's antagonist. He delivers the right amount of menace and is convincing as the dangerous mastermind behind the conspiracy. J.D. Chakravarthy, in a cameo, is impressive in his portrayal of an enigmatic character.

Overall, Samar is an entertaining action-thriller that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. The story is engaging and the performances are top-notch.
