Chikku Bukku Tamil Movie Review online | Chikku Bukku ratings and talk

Debutant Manikandan shot some portions in ‘Dhaam Dhoom’ after the sudden demise of director Jeeva. The protégé now makes his debut directorial with Chikku Bhukku. The film was promoted on the lines of being a romantic travelogue. Naturally, the film takes us through different locations across the globe from London to Chikka Mangalore and Coorg in Karnataka and Karaikudi.  The journey is a sweet memory, but the slow paced screenplay turns out to be a spoiler.

The film opens with a backdrop of 1985 where Sekar (Arya) is penning his memories in a diary. Immediately the film is fast-forwarded to 2010. The location is London and we come across Arjun (again played by Arya), a successful DJ. Then there is Anu (Shriya Charan) brought up in the foreign country, but values the Tamil culture very well. They are on their way to Tamil Nadu their own reasons and situations urge them to travel together. On the way, Arjun glimpses through the diary of his father Sekar and the love stories of different generation are shown simultaneously with an unexpected but a happy climax.

Arya looks sure with his actions and there are no flaws with his performance. In the previous films, he used to be causal, but has taken up the task as a serious mission. His dance is extraordinary and his performance as Sekar is impressive. Shriya looks to be over reactive with her performance. She is hyper-active in many parts. Preethika looks as artificial for the role of a traditional Tamil girl character as the shades of North Indian trait make her unapt. Santhanam’s comedy tracks aren’t as impressive as in ‘Boss Engira Bhaskaran’. Only couple of comedy tracks are rib-tickling while others are so clichéd.

Songs by Hariharan-Leslie are best than their previous film ‘Modhi Vilayaadu’. The entire film has been pictured well by cameraman Gurudev. Locations are the major plus. Costumes are additional plus.

The emotions that is necessary for a love story is one of the biggest minus in this movie.

Lots of discontinuities between the shows also act as a spoiler.

‘Chikku Bhukku’ is a passable show that can be watched with least expectations. It lacks logic, grip over the screenplay. If you’re ready to accept these drawbacks, you can go ahead and watch it.
