A severe hangover for the audience!

Plot:

Aditya (Sai Dharam Tej) is a real estate employee who has all bad habits such as going around with girls, drinking and so on. Accidentally he meets Anjali (Larissa) and he falls in love with her. He leaves all his bad habits for her and transforms to a good guy. But Anjali breaks up with Aditya and her marriage gets fixed with another person. As a  result, Aditya’s life turns to a mess and he loses his job. His best friend has a row with him. Unable to bear he torment, he destroys everything after partying hard and blasts a petrol bunk. He goes to the marriage venue and makes a mess of the place. The police are after him and why did Aditya do all this? What happened in the night when Aditya does all this? Why did Anjali leave Aditya? – forms the rest of the plot.

Performances:

Sai Dharam Tej: He is seen in an all time poor performance in this film. His entire efforts were in vain because of poor story. In short, all his drawbacks are clearly seen in this flick. Though he danced well, the film doesn’t need any such sequences!

Larissa: She looks alright but doesn’t look good when she smiles. She tried to give good expressions but failed. Perhaps this is the reason she wasn’t seen in the film in the last 30min.

Rajendra Prasad: He looked quite odd with the artificial bearded attire and the director didn’t know how to utilize him. One cannot blame Rajendra Prasad for the poor story.

Others: Mumaith Khan and Ali are seen as a pair and Ali looks very bad in his makeup. Mumaith Khan is a total miscast and a talented actor like Ajay is wasted. Despite having so many artists, none of them make an appeal.

Analysis:

In the first ten minutes of the film, one can easily understand that the director has no clarity over the story. The unnecessary drag in the scenes makes it evident that he is intentionally doing this to edge over a wafer thin storyline. One can be easily surprised to see how Sai Dharam Tej, or the producer accepted this project. Right from the moment the drink party begins, every character starts behaving in an odd manner. The songs appear out of nowhere and meaningless fights come into picture. When heroine is in some unknown place, the hero starts off dancing for an item song which is laughable. Thaman’s songs sound repetitive and needlessly they make an appearance in the film. None of the chasing scenes make an appeal.
 
Technical Aspects:

Thaman’s music is too loud and repetitive. The only song which is fun in the film Thikka Thikkagunadhe because Dhanush sang it. The re-recording is too loud for normal senses. The film is made on high production values and the cost is reflected. But the director failed miserably in crafting a film with good storyline and script.

Merits:

None!

De-merits:

Everything!

Verdict:

Thikka is a failed attempt from the director to craft a good film with fun elements. An avoidable fare!
