Expecting with the promotions about ‘Tik Tik Tik’as India’s first space science fictional movie, will ‘Jayam’ Ravi – Shakti Soundar Rajan combo after ‘Miruthan’ create good impact is a question mark.
The story begins with an asteroid falling so intensely in the coastal areas of Ennore and the damage creates many people’s deaths and injuries. When Indian Space Research Organization figures out what has created the disaster, they find another dangerous asteroid was approaching which will be falling on earth in next 7 days. Vasu, as a trained magician and an escape artist is released from jail for helping ISRO to steal a missile such that they try to divert the asteroid to break apart into two which will be flying away from earth without affecting the earth. Vasu also gets ready to help them knowing that this will only be the way to be with his beloved son. Then Vasu along with his two friends who help him in stealing and hacking the security systems , are given full training to go to the space to steal the 200 tons weighing missile from another country’s illegal spaceship. During the mission, Vasu gets threats from unknown that his son will be dead if he helps in ejecting the missile to save earth. Whether he will steal the missile from the spaceship to save the earth or will he fail to save his son to save the earth makes the rest of the story.
The story has a science fictional concept whereas the director has also missed some logic flow in between. Hero attempting to steal the missile and escaping from the another spaceship after stealing and the obstacles they face to steal the missile and visualizations like lack of gravity while crying were appreciated whereas the formula of keeping mirror and fooling the people with confusions in spite of high security alarm systems without ringing while the mirror placed in a spaceship is not easily acceptable. Some of the scenes can be improvised with logics still whereas the director has missed to visualize. Performance of the cast is one of the good impacts for making a better point in this movie. The story was not satisfied as much as expectations developed due to little logic mistakes and confusions.
The director has perfectly set the cast in which everybody is involved in the story. The performance of the cast is said to be much better compared to the other logic affecting factors. But it is hard to accept that this was not ‘Jayam’ Ravi’s best performance with sentiments whereas Nivetha Pethuraj acts like a female astronaut who is very patriotic. The dialogue delivery and characterization was not giving much support to the movie. The comedy sequences with Ramesh Thilak and Arjun had very less laughing gags. Costumes for the cast in the space were quiet normal in the visuals compared to the expectations.
1. Rarely handled plot
2. Technical aspects
What doesn’t work?
2. Mishandling of logics
On the Whole, This movie will be an entertainer with good CG Visuals inspite of having more predictable scenes
Verdict : One time watch without creating a ‘Tik Tik Tik’ factor.
Ratings : 4.5/10
