Cast and Performance
Sai Dharam Tej is nice as Adithya.He is improving a lot from movie to movie. He is not so convincing when he talks sober. He looks good but in the same look as his previous movies. Larissa Bonessi is okay as Anjali. Mannara Chopra is good. She looks beautiful in some scenes. Satya as friend of Aditya, Steve is good. Sapthagiri and Tagubothu Ramesh are hilarious. Ali is good but mask used to show him as bald looks artificial and unconvincing. Ajay is psychotic and performed well. Rajendra Prasad is impressive as Adithya’s father. Vennela Kishore is super funny as Jayanth. All other artists are fine for their roles.
Story of Thikka is good and simple. Screenplay is mediocre and dialogues are good.
Tunes rendered by SS Thaman are nice. Thikka Thikka song is an instant chartbuster. Background score is nice which help scenes work even more. Cinematography by K.V.Guhan is fantastic. His visuals made this movie look super rich in quality. Editing by Karthika Srinivas is good. Action sequences are choreographed and shot well. Production values are rich.

This movie begins with after effects of ruckus created by Adithya and gang over a breakup night and moves into flashback mode when Adithya is about to kill himself with poison. This flashback is engaging at beginning and becomes pale after a couple of scenes with screenplay.Thikka thikka song which is a chartbuster fails to reach the expectations and leaves audience seeking more. Interval scene is average and fails to create the much needed curiosity for the second half. Characters comes for scenes and go without having any prominence. Second half begins in jail where Adithya and gang are tied by Posani follwed by Vellipoke song which seems forced for the situation. Comedy injected in the scenes of second half are a big let down at times. This story has more back stories and twists which misfire due to screenplay. There are many scenes involving slow motion shots which are good to watch. Numerous glass breaks, many vehicle accidents, breakup scenes, ruckus in public places, slow motion shots are the core of this Thikka. To sum up, Thikka is a very thikka film from Sai Dharam Tej which fails to impress audience.
