Thaakka Thaakka (Thakka Thakka) starring Vikranth has been released today all over Tamil Nadu. Continue reading our movie review to know what this action drama has to offer.
Thaakka Thaakka Plot:
Sathya, played by Vikranth, experiences a horrible childhood as he grows up watching his helpless mother after she is forcefully drafted into the world of human trafficking.
Bala, played by Arul Dass, who had earlier pushed Sathya's mother into his business of prostitution, kills her unintentionally and thereby orphaning Sathya.
Not knowing how to go about his life, he ends up in Chennai and aims at starting life afresh. But, in a cinematic twist he once again comes in contact with the man responsible for his mother's death, giving rise to vengeance which turns this flick into a revenge drama.
Vikranth shines in the action sequences, making us believe that he is indeed an action hero. Otherwise too his acting skills are pretty decent.
Abhinaya has come up with a neat performance but special mention goes to one of the baddies, Arul Dass of Soodhu Kavvum fame, for stitching together a captivating performance.
Thaakka Thaakka is technically solid, barring its lacklustre and slow screenplay which spoils the fun and hampers the uniqueness with which this film is treated, though being a revenge drama.
Easily, the stand out performer in the technical department is the film's cinematographer, Sujith Sarang. He has managed to capture the nuances of each and every scene, especially in those scenes shot during the dusk.
While songs may irritate you a touch, background score by Jakes Bejoy is decent enough for a action drama. In fact, Vikranth's screen presence in some scenes is elevated purely because of the BGM.
Thaakka Thaakka is an honest attempt by its director Sanjeev. Having said that, ordinary screenplay turns it into a mundane flick.

The movie starts on a promising note as the first 20 minutes is engaging with some brilliant performances. However, as it approaches the interval block, it loses its shape a bit.
Action sequences have come out really well and is one of the strengths of Thaakka Thaakka. As mentioned earlier, Vikranth looks good when it comes to stunts.
No Clichéd Sequences
What largely works in this movie is the director's ability to avoid clichéd and melodramatic sequences for which he deserves a praise.
Aravinnd Singh's Debut
Aravinnd Singh (Demonte Colony's cinematographer) has made his acting debut through this movie. The cameraman-actor has done a decent job playing Vikranth's friend.
Yet Another Revenge Tale
Thaakka Thaakka is yet another revenge tale, but the way this script is handled by its director has its own uniqueness.
Box Office Success?
With a strong competition from Jayam Ravi's Thani Oruvan, Thaakka Thaakka's chances at the box office looks bleak at the moment. However, let's wait for the official box office numbers.
