Takkar Movie Review and Rating: 2/5 – Starring: Siddharth, Divyansha Kaushik, Abhimanyu Singh – Director: Karthik G Krish – Music Director: Nivas K Prasanna
Hero Siddharth is back with a new movie called Takkar. He’s joined by the lovely Divyansha Kaushik as the female lead, and the film is directed by Karthik G Krish. It just hit theaters today, so let’s go and check out Takkar Movie Review
Story: Gunasekhar (played by Siddharth), who’s struggling to support his family due to their poor economic status. He moves to Vizag and takes on odd jobs, but he’s constantly bullied wherever he goes. When an opportunity arises for him to make some serious cash, he decides to take it, even if it means breaking the law. But things don’t go as planned, and Gunasekhar finds himself in trouble. What will he do next? And how will the arrival of Lucky (played by Divyansha Kaushik), a wealthy girl, change his fate? You’ll have to watch the movie to find out!
Plus Points: One of the best things about Takkar is how it starts off with a bang – Siddharth’s character is attempting suicide right from the get-go. Then we get a flashback that sets up his motivations and struggles really well. The scenes where he’s being bullied at work are also really effective in making us sympathize with him and understand why he makes the choices he does.
Siddharth is the real star of the show here – he’s in almost every scene, and he gives a really sincere performance as a young man trying to escape poverty. His comedic timing is also on point, and he still has that undeniable charm. Divyansha’s role is a bit more focused on her looks, but she does a decent job with what she’s given. There are also some great action sequences and funny moments that keep things interesting.
Minus Points: Takkar was a bit of a letdown. The talented cast must have been desperate for work to choose this script, which lacked any real substance. There was no love story to swoon over, and no thrilling moments to keep us on the edge of our seats. Even Siddharth and the other actors couldn’t save this sinking ship.
The biggest issue with Takkar was the lack of story. If there’s nothing to hook the audience, then the narrative needs to be engaging. Unfortunately, the storytelling was even weaker than the plot. It was a real test of patience to sit through this one. The director tried to inject some comedy with Yogi Babu and Munishkanth, but it just fell flat. The first half with Yogi Babu was downright irritating, and the bad dubbing didn’t help.
There were a couple of decent comedy scenes, but most of them were just plain annoying. The first half was bearable, but the second half was a complete mess. Abhimanyu Singh was wasted in a poorly written role, and the film could have easily been 15 minutes shorter.
Technical Aspects: the music and background score were forgettable. The cinematography was decent, and the production values were okay. The editing was below-par, and the VFX was substandard.
As for the writer-director, Karthik G Krish, he really dropped the ball with Takkar. The story and screenplay were weak, and even the talented actors couldn’t save it. The movie was filled with boring and dull scenes that just added to the length. If only the director had focused on the storytelling, Takkar could have been a watchable film.
Verdict: Takkar is a forgettable movie that lacks engaging moments. The weak plot and dull narrative can really test your patience. However, Siddharth’s performance is noteworthy, and there are a couple of good action scenes. Unfortunately, the movie falls short of expectations and is ultimately disappointing. My advice? You can definitely skip it.
