Suriya’s Singam 3, known as Si3, and directed by Hari, is a template franchise film and once again, it is Suriya’s charisma that makes the film work to a certain extent.

The story, presentation, loud background score, aerial shots and close ups are again the same as in the previous Singam series. Director Hari introduced Suriya as Durai Singam in the first Singam. Suriya was as a reluctant police officer with strong family values, who preferred to run a provision store in a small village in Tamil Nadu, over policing. The first part was all about Durai Singam overcoming his own mental barriers and convincing himself to stick to khaki.
In Singam 2, Durai's experience in Chennai had made him more efficient in dealing with hardened criminals.
While in Si3, Durai Singam has grown more focused and advanced as he gets ready to finish an international crime syndicate, run by Vitthal Prasad (played by Thakur Anoop Singh). The background of the film is the volatile situation in Telugu states after Telangana was carved out of Andhra Pradesh. Durai Singam is called in from Tamil Nadu by the AP government to investigate the murder of the police commissioner of Vizag.
Suriya dominates in the entire film and is terrific as Durai Singam. The climax chase and the fight scenes are well choreographed.
On the whole, Si3 is just a continuation of Singam series, which has its moments. It is virtually impossible to find an actor who can play the role with the conviction and commitment like Suriya. And it is difficult for the audience to even image any other actor in the shoes of Durai Singam.
