Thaaka Thaaka Tamil Movie Review

Feature Film
Thaakka Thaakka is a mundane revenge drama with a pedestrian story-line, but the technical work and the stellar performances of the supporting cast makes the film watchable.

Thaakka Thakka marks the comeback of Vikranth in the lead hero after a long time. Director Sanjeev has made a fairly good debut with the film, which has a regular storyline but falls flat with the execution in the first half. While most Tamil films suffer from the second half syndrome, Thaakka Thaakka has interestingly scored an absolute win over there with some fine performance from the supporting cast, which includes Aruldoss, Abinaya and Bose Venkat.


Sathya's (played by Vikranth) mother unwillingly engages in prostitution, which is headed by Aruldoss. In a tussle with Arul, Sathya's mother loses her life and he escapes to Chennai and meets Karthi, who is an orphan. Karthi and Sathya become close friends. Being that Karthi and Sathya are thick as thieves, the latter helps the former in uniting with her girlfriend, played by Abinaya. However, things turn topsy-turvy when Sathya meets Aruldoss in Chennai and wants to take revenge for the killing of his mother.


There is mother-son sentiment. There is friendship. There is also romance. This is where director Sanjeev has failed to captivate the interest of audiences by cutting loose with various genres which have made him concentrate less on the narration clarity.


The story-telling takes a backseat and we get mundane plot points which become tiring at one point. The running time at close two and a half hour is a worry considering the fact that the entire first half save alone the first twenty minutes, moves at a snail pace and never manages to picks up.


However, the performances are really great. The technical team has done a solid work, especially the cinematography and the music by Sujith Sarang and Jakes Bejoy, who has composed variety of scores for the film's most demanding junctures.


Thaakka Thaakka is a mundane revenge drama with a pedestrian story-line, but the technical work and the stellar performances of the supporting cast makes the film watchable.
