Director Manjunath Babu has selected a story that Sandalwood has seen many times. The script and narration have nothing new to offer. Veera Pulikeshi is the simple story of Pulikeshi (Bharath Sarja), ACP, who takes on goons in Bangalore, killing them one after the other. Then the audience is introduced to a don called Tiger (Ravishankar) who wants to construct a live band venue ( a restaurant) in the Majestic area. His high-flying connections with the excise minister and the chief minister are of no help as he needs a no objection certificate from the ACP. But the cop declines. This leads to a prolonged fight between the duo.
Bharath Sarja's feeble act doesn't do justice to the character of the fearless cop. Rekha, as the cop's fiancee, is no good either. It is Ravishankar who steals the show for his brilliant performance. Music and cinematography are dull.
