Takkar Movie Rating: 2/5
Takkar is the new movie from Siddharth. Songs from the film have become highly successful. Takkar got delayed by three years due to pandemic and few other issues. It has been finally released on 9th June, 2023. Let’s discuss how Takkar is…
Takkar is all about the life of Gunasekhar(Siddharth), who wants to become filthy rich at one go. He hails from a poor household and short-tempered. He believes short temper is also a good quality but it pushes him towards failure more times than any. He falls for Lucky aka Mahalakshmi(Divyansha Kaushik) but she is too rich for his financial level. A group that kidnaps rich girls to either sell-off or demand extortion looks to trap Lucky. How Gunasekhar and Lucky lives interchange? What will happen to them? Can Gunasekhar use his temper in right situation at right time? Watch Takkar movie to know the details.
Takkar has Siddharth giving it everything. He danced well, performed in character and did everything in his hands to make it an enjoyable ride. But the script doesn’t allow him to raise above mediocrity. Siddharth has delivered films like Bommarillu, Jigarthanda that became cult classics. So, the expectations from his movies will always be at the high end. This one doesn’t satisfy even the lowest of our expectations. Takkar tries too hard to be a uber cool and fun film. But the writing doesn’t have the meat for the ambition it carries.
Divyansha Kaushik looked gorgeous and did well. Yogi Babu, Abhimanyu Singh and Munishkanth comedy just irritates. RJ Vigneshkanth is good in few scenes but his comedy also fails. Takkar could have been a fun movie like Paiya/Awara but it fails in engaging us with serious scenes or comedy. Trying to be a on-road ride fun movie, Takkar cuts to comedy every other scene where emotions needed some sustainability. It reminds us of an old Nagarjuna film like Chaitanya(1989) and does same mistakes. Takkar leaves us disappointed while watching it.
