In a bid to motivate his force which at present is mired in a series of controversies involving drug nexus, sexual abuse, corruption and political pressure, DGP Arya decided to hold the movie's special screening.
The movie was screened in the 900-seater auditorium at Kala Academy while another screening would be held at Ravindra Bhavan in Margao for the South Goa police on Monday.
The police chief's brainchild is being highly appreciated among the police force, media circle and other groups.
The movie which was screened without intermission evoked good response with policemen whistling and clapping on the hyper active dialogues especially by Ashok Saraf, who plays the role of head constable in the movie.
SINGHAM's crusade against corruption, clashing with his seniors, and other scenes were applauded by the police audience throughout the screening.
"The movie is quite dramatized but it can be taken for motivating the force...I pray that the police force try to live up to what has been seen here (in the movie)," Arya said while addressing the gathering after the movie.
He said the department will ensure that they serve better for the people of Goa.
