Sketch: An underwhelming watch
After charming the audience with his dual role performance in the film Iru Mugan, Vikram returns with a brand new action film, Sketch. Directed by Vijay Chander, the story of this film revolves around Sketch (Vikram), who works in a mechanic shop, and is the trustworthy employee of Settu (Harish Peradi). Sketch and his team of friends also help in seizing the vehicles of loan defaulters. The film is an action drama that delivers a few laughs and is also offers plenty of chase sequences.
The story sets a new turn when a cop is assigned to check on gang leader Royapuram Kumar (Baburaj)’s illegal activities. Settu, who has been aspiring for Kumar’s vintage car, asks Sketch to bring the vehicle since it belonged to his father. However, the challenge is to bring is without Kuma’s permission. Sketch and his team play a trick on Kumar and bring the car to Settu. An angry Kumar decides to kill everyone in the four-member gang. What happens next forms the rest of the story.
Vikram wins the heart of the audience with his uber-cool attitude. He plays the role of a ‘masala’ hero that reminds us of his performance in his hit film Gemini (2002). The film also engages us with the action sequences and unexpected twists that keep us engaged till the end. However, the film fails to keep one engaged for a full complete duration. This may be due to its unconvincing and song placements that may test your patience.
