Chiyaan Vikram and Tamannah Bhatia have come forward for an interesting film titled Sketch. The film with the same title released in Tamil during Sankranthi. Vijay Chander is the director of the film and Thaman scored the music. With decent promotions, the film is releasing in Telugu today. Check out the film’s review here.
Jiiva aka Sketch (Vikram) is a right hand to a financier Sait (Harish Peradi), who offers loan for bikes and cars. Sait uses Jiiva as a weapon to seize the vehicles when someone fails to pay back the due amount. In the process, Sait challenges Sketch to seize an old Fiat car of a gangster Kumar(Babu Raj). Kumar considers it as his precious possession in memory of his dad. What happens then? How did the war between Jiiva and Kumar unfold? forms the story of the movie.
Chiyaan Vikram is the biggest saving factor of the movie. The actor did well in every scene. His charm will make the audiences awe-struck. The actor did the action sequences well and provides an action feast to the audiences. Tamannah is fit for the glamour role in the film and she hardly had any scope for the performance in the masala entertainer. Babu Raj played the lead antagonist and tried to be powerful in the film. Sreeman, ‘Kalloori’ Vinoth and Vishwanath do justice to what they are offered. RK Suresh and a few others appeared in the negative roles. All the other made their presence felt.
Thaman’s melodies are soothing, building the strongest pillars for the chemistry of the lead pair. His songs, unfortunately, have been the best so far for Vikram in his career. The music director also recorded best background score for the hero and elevated the character and the movie properly at times. The Cinematography, editing, etc, have been taken care of, not venturing too much but the camera work appeared nice. A bit more care for the editing could have made the movie better. The dubbing was done in a decent manner. The stunts were choreographed nicely. The VFX part is nice.
The first half of the movie might look a tad as it takes to establish the characters. This is usual for any film of this sort but it is certainly the weakest point of the movie. The plot opens up only just minutes before the intermission. Other than this, the film also appears hazy. The mass elements are going to work well with the audiences and the romantic portions have also come out well. The film is a typical mass entertainer with Telugu flavour to it. There is an unexpected twist towards the climax that will surely surprise all audiences. It is worth the wait and watch. The movie goes well with the fans but the regular movie lovers might feel that the movie could still be a better one. On a whole, the film is an interesting watch.
