The movie is a Pongal fest that hit the screens today. Chiyaan Vikram the synonym of talent and dedication is back in Kollywood after a year. The actor’s last release in Tamil was Iru Mugan. 10 Endrathukulla and his other films before that dint do well at the box office. Sketch is the first film Vikram and Tamannaah are being paired against each other.
The plot is not challenging for a fine actor like Vikram as he is energetic as usual. Director Vijay Chander has used the same old story and screenplay in the first half so nothing extraordinary here. Despite being a commercial entertainer the film is said to have a strong love story with a key role for Tamannaah. For long, North Madras has been portrayed as the grey side of Chennai. However, with films like Madras and Meyaadha Maan, the stereotype is slowly changing. Sketch promises to be another name in that list with its stylish portrayal of the region.
Thaman’s music in a big-profile project is an added strength to the movie. His music is well appreciated by the audience and it brings a special feel to the story line.Sketch proves once again that “masala entertainers” with the same old story remains the staple diet of entertainment for Tamil audiences at large. Jiiva aka Sketch (Vikram) is a right hand to local financier Sait , who offers loan for bikes and cars. If anyone fails to pay back the due amount, Sketch’s job to seize the vehicle. Things go well, until Sait challenges Sketch to seize an old Fiat car of a gangster Kumar (Babu Raj), who consider it as his precious possession in memory of his dad. Kumar sketches a plan to kill Sketch and his close friends watch the movie to find out the rest of this commercial entertainer. Cinematographer Sukumar provided visuals required for a mass film. The climax and interval action sequences are the film’s major highlights, so kudos to the stunt director. Overall it an entertainer film and will be enjoyed by Vikram’s fans.
