Shines with breathtaking visuals from Venkatesh and intriguing background score from Imman.
Much awaited Kollywood film Tik:Tik:Tik movie finally released & it’s wonderful attempt from tamil film industry which makes you amaze.
Behindwoods : Jayam Ravi does an impeccable job carrying the film on his shoulders. Ramesh Thilak and Arjunan try to provide the occasional comic relief while Nivetha Pethuraj lightens up the screen with her glam quotient in the initial phase of the film and she fulfilled the requirements of the character with an apt performance.
Director Sakthi Soundarajan has concentrated on the commercial aspects more than the drama of the people who are sweating it out to save humanity, which might well be in respect to the box office prospects of the film but however, one feels it doesn’t let you get attached to the characters much.
Jayam Ravi and his son Aarav’s on-screen chemistry was heartwarming to see in the Kurumba song. Both the songs from Imman were good and the BGM worked decently well. Art director SS Moorthy deserves a special mention to recreate a space set in Chennai. Cinematographer S Venkatesh took a challenging task and made it look easy, the visuals were impressive.
Tik Tik Tik has some good graphics work, stunning sound design and a traditional dose of sentiment. If you don’t look at logic and feel a movie is meant to entertain, Tik Tik Tik will do just that.
Verdict: Spare the logic, Tik Tik Tik might still be an edifice of tomorrow’s sci-fi Tamil movies. (2.75 / 5).
Sify Tamil Movies : Tik Tik Tik is definitely an ambitious attempt in Tamil cinema, the set work by art director Moorthy is commendable and the VFX team has also done a brilliant job. The film looks international with top notch visuals and packaged with enough emotions to make it a mass action entertainer. In fact, there is an emotional father-son sentiment angle and typical fight sequences set in the space station which has artificial gravity (cinematic liberty?). There are many logical loopholes, as it is not that easy for a petty thief to steal a missile from Chinese space station!
Kudos to Jayam Ravi for choosing such an unique genre and pushing the boundaries of Tamil industry. He is in excellent form, meeting the film’s intense physical demands and taking the character’s emotional journey in equal stride. His son Aarav gets a meaty debut. Nivetha Pethuraj looks lovely as an action heroine but performance wise she has nothing much to do. Jayaparakash’s characterization and the twist in the climax is weak.
Verdict : Tik Tik Tik shines with breathtaking visuals from Venkatesh and intriguing background score from Imman, (Title song is awesome) as pointed out earlier, the production design and VFX works are top notch. Overall, for an Indian space film, Tik Tik Tik is a laudable attempt and a definite must-watch. Go in with patience and an open mind.
