Sketch – movie review

Jiva alias Sketch (Vikram) is a right hand man of a vehicle financier, anyone who defaults the loan comes into the radar of Sketch and he seizes the vehicle within minutes. He is supported by his Uncle and his friends who help him out. With growing fame and power Sketch also becomes the target of other gangs who are waiting for chance to get rid of him. When he challenged to seize a car of a well-known Kingpin who is long due of his Loan, he agrees to do it and also seizes the vehicle. This becomes the turning point in his life as the kingpin targets sketch and his friends and decides to kill them. How this ends for sketch is the rest of the story.

In the genre of Gemini and Rajapattai , Vikram once again steps into a thug role in Sketch. The first half goes in a steady pace, but loses track in-between and goes of course in romance and unwanted songs. Though it picks up in the second half, the audience lose their patience by that time.Tammanaa doesn’t have much of role in the movie, the character could have been avoided. Vikram has done well but the story loops forever, with unnecessary lags which irritates the audience. Interval block and climax scenes are highlights of the film, but the rest could have been done better. Sketch gets 4/10

Thana serndha koottam – Movie review

Film starts with ambitious young men Iniyan ( Surya) and his friend , who try hard to serve as law enforcement officers. Though both are qualified the corrupt system breaks their dreams. When the latter takes a drastic decision , Iniyan decides to take revenge on the corrupt and the system. He forms a team of individuals and target the corrupt posing as CBI officers. As their heists become bigger, a special task force his formed lead by Kurinjivendhan (Karthick) who is known for his clean record. How Iniyan and his team execute one last heist under pressure , is the rest of the story.
Based on the plot of Neeraj Pandey’s Special 26, director Vignesh shiv gives a different presentation with Suriya  in the lead. The main difference in the Tamil version centres the whole film on Surya , whereas the original was well balanced with a beautiful ensemble of a cast. Surya dominates the screen and Vignesh shiv has broken the chains of the “Singam” Surya and given the fans a much more bubbly and charismatic Hero. Songs play an integral part in the film and navigates the flow pleasantly. Saying that , as the first half breezes through, the second half is loosely fitted and ends hurriedly . Rest of the cast manages through , but have no screen time to elaborate. Keerthi Suresh comes briefly but manages to shine in those moments. Those who have see the original they can’t stand this version, for others it may entertain.
I give the film 5/10

Velaikaaran – Movie review

Velaikaaran finds its foundation at Kolakaaran Kuppam where Arivu (Siva Karthikeyan) is keen to start a radio channel in the Kuppam to bring empowerment to the people living there. This becomes a Herculean task since this Kuppam and its people are in control of Kasi(Prakash Raj) who uses the Kuppam people as scapegoat for his illegal practices. When his attempts backfire, he decides get a job and mind his own way. He lands up as a sales executive in biggest company in the food industry , Saffron Pvt Ltd. There he meets Aadi(Fahadh Faasil) who teaches him the tricks of the trade. Slowly Arivu heirs people from the Kuppam into his company which brings him some peace. But his whole world changes when he finds out how his company is selling adulterated food and its own workers who are also the part of the consumers have no clue about. How Arivu brings these people to justice and enlightens the common consumer is the rest of the story.
Though the movie takes time to sink in with the actual plot, it keeps the audience engaged and turns the heat up in the second half and ends strong.This movie marks as an important film in Siva Karthikeyan’s career and he has given a decent performance , though he still has to do better in emotional scenes. Fahadh Faasil plays a key role in the film and he shares equal screen space as Siva Karthikeyan and dominates some scenes totally. Nayanthara has very little in the film , but does it neatly. Much was Expected from Mohan Raja after Thani Oruvan and he has proved once again that he can give pure and complete cinema keeping the common man in mind. Production value was top notch and art design by Muthuraj was great. Cinematography by Ramji flawless and precise from shot to shot.Kudos to the whole team. With logical discrepancies and wavy screen play, but presented well as a complete film. Velaikaaran gets 6/10
