Kuttram 23 is slickly made pulp (the story is by crime novel specialist Rajeshkumar) that unfolds as a tense investigative thriller. It also provides us a delicious irony. Arun Vijay, who played an unrepentant criminal who indulges in medical crime in Yennai Arindhaal, is now on the other side, playing a cop whose investigation helps expose a medical crime racket! He is ACP Vetrimaran, who is handed over a sensitive case involving the disappearance of Jessica, a pregnant woman, who is the wife of TV channel boss. As Vetri starts investigating, he gets closer to Thendral (Mahima Nambiar), a witness in the case, on whom a murder attempt is made.
Meanwhile, on the home front, his sister-in-law, Abhinaya (Abhinaya) becomes pregnant after many years of marriage. However, she commits suicide and when Vetri probes, he realises that her death is connected to the murder of Jessica. And there are other pregnant women who have died under mysterious circumstances. What’s the link between these murders?
