Tik Tik Tik - Honest Movie Review

Verdict – "A Remarkable Attempt Ruined by Some Clichéd Writing!"

When an asteroid is about to strike some regions in South India, the Indian Defence Army decides to blast it using a nuclear weapon. Since there is no nuclear weapon of such intensity available in India, they decide to steal it from a secret vault in outer space with the help of a magician cum escape artist.

Director Shakthi Sounder Rajan is known to explore untouched genres in Tamil Cinema. With ‘Miruthan’, he gave the first Zombie movie ever made in Tamil Cinema Industry. And now with ‘Tik Tik Tik’, he delivered India’s first outer space based film. With soaring high expectations people anticipate for a solid movie but Rajan chose to ignore the writing aspects and focused more on the visual part which resulted in a film having a generic plot. 

‘Jeyam’ Ravi has solely carried the entire movie on his shoulders. He compensates for the weak writing and makes sure the movie is watchable with his acting. Nivetha Pethuraj, Jayaprakash, and other supporting cast were just fine. 

On the technical side, the film is of the highest quality. I didn’t expect the VFX to be excellent and it surprised me for the most part. As India’s first space adventure, the visual effects should be breathtaking and the movie succeeded in it. The songs and the background score by D. Imman are also another one of the few positives I found in this film as he made sure that his music creates the right impact needed for a space genre film.

Nevertheless, Tik Tik Tik would have been better if with an attractive story and an engaging screenplay cause the writing part of the movie is a letdown. Barring it, the movie is definitely a well-made space genre film and the effort of the whole team should be appreciated. 

My Rating – 2.75/5 | Grade – C+ (A Decent Flick!)
