Takkar Movie Review

Cast: Siddharth, Divyansha Kaushik, Yogi Babu, Abhimanyu Singh, Vignesh

Director: Karthik G Krish

“Takkar” revolves around an ambitious but financially struggling young man who desires wealth. The plot delves into how his aspirations lead him into trouble with the mafia, while also developing a love interest in a spoiled and wealthy girl.


Siddharth appears with a goatee and a slightly different hairstyle, but unfortunately, the look doesn’t suit him well. Moreover, there is a noticeable lack of screen presence and enthusiasm in his performance. It feels as if he is merely fulfilling his role rather than actively engaging in the film. Though he manages a few dramatic moments and action sequences, overall, Siddharth’s performance in “Takkar” is forgettable, lacking memorable moments as both an actor and a star.

Divyansha portrays an ultra-glamorous character, showcasing a significant amount of skin and handling her on-screen tasks with ease. However, apart from the glamour quotient, there isn’t much to appreciate in her performance as an actor.


“Takkar” is written and directed by Karthik G Krish. The film attempts to combine various genres, including action, romance, and drama, while featuring an assortment of quirky and predictable characters.

The movie starts with a flashback, piquing curiosity about the central character and his decision-making process. This intrigue continues as different characters are introduced, generating interest in the story’s direction.

However, the promising beginnings of these various plotlines remain the highlight of “Takkar.” The film fails to deliver an engaging follow-through. The hero’s ambition to become rich, the kidnapping mafia track, and the involvement of Chinese characters all fall short of reaching the next level in the narrative. While these introductions and plotlines consume a significant portion of the first half, they only manage to offer a barely passable viewing experience due to the curiosity they generate.

Regrettably, the second half of the film proves to be a massive disappointment. The different storylines are abandoned, and the narrative takes a completely different turn. The audience is subjected to a prolonged, laborious, and forced love track that appears more lustful than genuine romance. The film relies heavily on songs and exposure, lacking engaging dialogue. It feels as if “Takkar” transforms into an entirely different film.

Characters from the first half make sporadic appearances, serving primarily as reminders of the earlier portions of the film and to provide a climax for the love story. However, these characters are poorly developed and lack depth.

The climax fails to deliver a satisfying resolution and instead presents unconvincing and outlandish elements. Despite the buildup, the threats posed by the villains barely hold any weight by the time the climax unfolds.

Overall, “Takkar” feels outdated, incomplete (neither a fully realized action-thriller nor a convincing urban romance), and suffers from unconvincing execution. The second half significantly diminishes any remaining interest, rendering the film forgettable.


Promising aspects in the first half

Intriguing beginnings


Underdeveloped characters

Tedious love track

Weak villain plotline

Ineffective use of songs and comedy


In conclusion, “Takkar” is an outdated and poorly executed film that fails to fully embrace its chosen genres. The second half dampens any initial interest, resulting in a forgettable viewing experience.
