Director

Sundar C

Star Cast

Yuvakrishna, Vivek, Ankitha, Tejasri

Thakathimitha directed by Sundar.C, is yet another campus love story with no big surprises as the story and presentation is already seen in umpteen films in the same genre. This time the hero is Yuva Krishna a debutant and giving his company is Vivek in a full length role. Of course Vivek hogs the show but is as stale as yesterday?s sambar!

Krishna (Yuva Krishna) meets his best friend Vivek (Vivek) in college who helps him get a job at a restaurant! Krishna moves into a rented house with his parents (Rajeev and Nirosha) and grandfather (M.S.Viswanathan). The owner?s daughter Gayathri (Ankitha) works as a radio jockey and slowly she wins over Krishna?s parents who decide to get their son married to her. But to their surprise, both says ?No? to the idea and then the rest of the story is how both the parents of both sides try to bring them together.

The love between the lead pair is told in a long flashback by Vivek who was running the college canteen. It is a typical campus seen only in films where students come in micro minis, sing songs and generally indulge in fun and frolic. To top it all, Shakeela the ex- sex queen is the warden at the ladies hostel, which leads to some titillating scenes.

Newcomer Yuva Krishna has a long way to go as far as acting goes but is tall and good-looking. Ankitha is good and Vivek does his usual comedy act with lot of one-liners and take-off?s on other newcomers like Simbu, Ravi Krishna and others. His body language and dialogue delivery has become so stale and predictable that leaves the audience cold. Parvai Muniamma is loud and irritating, while Tejasri has nothing much to do. D.Imman?s songs come at regular intervals that are jarring and harmful to your ear drums. On the whole this film is not worth watching.

Verdict: Run-of-the-mill
