Chiyaan Vikram and Tamannaah Bhatia in Sketch
Chiyaan Vikram and Tamannaah Bhatia in SketchTwitter

Director Vijay Chandar's Telugu movie Sketch starring Chiyaan Vikram and Tamannaah Bhatia in the lead roles has received positive reviews and good ratings from the audience.

Sketch is the Telugu version of the Tamil action thriller of the same name. Vijay Chandar has written the script apart from directing the film and Moving Frame bankrolled it. The film has received a U/A certificate from the censor board and has a runtime of 2.18 hours.

Sketch movie story: The film is about Sketch (Vikram), a trusted henchman of a local loan shark. He is entrusted with the duty of seizing vehicles from the defaulters and he does a commendable job. All goes well for him until he makes the mistake of seizing a crazed gangster's prized possession - a vintage Fiat. What happens next forms the crux of the story.

Analysis: Sketch is a commercial entertainer with nothing new to offer in terms of story. The first half appears to be too long as it takes a lot of time to establish the characters. The story gains momentum before the interval and some twists and turns keep you engaged in the second half, say the audience.

Performances: Vikram has given an electrifying performance. Tamannaah Bhatia doesn't have much scope for acting, but she steals the show with her glamour and chemistry with the hero. Soori, Sreeman, Kalloori Vinoth, Vishwanath, Hareesh Peradi, Aruldoss and others have also done good work, say the viewers.

Technical: Sketch has good production values. SS Thaman's songs and background score, M Sukumar's cinematography, dialogues and well-choreographed action scenes are the main attractions on the technical front, say the audiences.

#sketch ---- (2.25/5) FAILS shortly.... After a good 1st Half, there's a OVERDRAGGED 2nd Half with a forced Climax. An unconvincing Romantic thread. A mass ENTERTAINER that works in parts with Chiyaan's MASS presence........

#Sketchreview 2.25/5 Surprisingly good plot let down by direction & technical team. This had potential to be another Gemini but too many unwanted scenes & poor presentation has let it down.

123 Telugu Rating: 2.5 

Sketch is a routine suspense drama which does not offer anything that was promised in the trailers. It is an out and out mass film that may appeal only to a certain B and C center audience. The unconvincing climax and out of the blue social message deviate the film's mood completely. Apart from Vikram and Tamannah's screen presence, this film has nothing much going its way and can be watched when it is aired on TV.

Chitramala Rating: 2.5

The film is a typical mass entertainer with Telugu flavour to it. There is an unexpected twist towards the climax that will surely surprise all audiences. It is worth the wait and watch. The movie goes well with the fans but the regular movie lovers might feel that the movie could still be a better one. On a whole, the film is an interesting watch.
