Rekka – Review by Naveen

Rekka

– Review

2016 is going to be a memorable year in Vijay Sethupathi’s career, as his sixth release in 10 months, ‘Rekka’, is here. Perhaps for the first time, the actor has tried his hands at an out and out commercial film, that too set in the Madurai backdrop.
Director Rathina Siva, who has conceived some power packed scenes to boost the image of VS, has missed the overall packaging. And the story too is wafer thin. But still, ‘Rekka’ stands out as it manages to keep us glued to the seats to a maximum extent.
Siva (Vijay Sethupathi) is an advocate who helps girls from getting married to men they don’t like. One day, his friend (Sathish) earns the wrath of a deadly baddie (Harish Uttaman).
Now the evil man pressurises Siva to kidnap Bharathi (Lakshmi Menon), daughter of a minister and bride of another baddie (Kabir Khan) as the former has to settle scores with the latter.
Siva too agrees to the task as his sister’s marriage is at stake. With Bharathi, who is impressed with Siva, very much ready to come with him, things become easy for Siva.
But it is really not that easy, as they are now caught between three forces- two gangsters and a minister.
Vijay Sethupathi delivers a mix of mass and class performance, while Lakshmi Menon does a Genelia and Laila (read loosu ponnu). Sathish, K S Ravikumar, Harish Uttaman and Kabir Khan led adequate support.
D Imman’s songs are good, but his background score is average. Cinematography and editing add to the commercial fare. Though the end product could have certainly been better, ‘Rekka’ is not the one you could avoid. And it is doubly so for those who love masala movies.

Rating: 3 out of 5
