Look at early reviews of Sketch

Chiyaan Vikram and Tamannaah Bhatia’s Sketchhas hit the theatres today. It is one of the Pongal releases. In the film, which is directed by Vijay Chander, Vikram plays a wing man, Jiiva/Sketch to a local financier Sait played by Harish Peradi. Things go downhill after he is challenged to retrieve a car from a gangster Kumar (Babu Raj). The goon plans to murder Sketch and his gang. Fights follow and finally Sketch exposes the real villains. It is an out and out masala film. Vikram shot for the film along with Gautham Menon’s spy thriller Dhruva Natchathiram. The actor’s last release in Tamil was Iru Mugan, which got a lukewarm response at the box office. Tamannaah plays his romantic interest and has a homely role in the film. Here is a look at what critics are saying about Sketch…

The reviewer from SIFY wrote, “Overall, Sketch is an average commercial entertainer ideal for mass audiences and hard core Vikram fans. Let’s face it, Taman’s score, and the sincerity that Vikram brings to the film are its only strengths.”

Shubham Dwivedi of is not too pleased with Vikram’s idea to do a film like Sketch. He opined in his 2.5/5 review, “Vikram’s stardom will stay afloat down south but a film like Sketch is not the healthiest way to improve a filmography which can afford one of the biggest films in the history of Indian cinema. The audience of mass centers will really appreciate this film by dancing in the theaters and it is catharsis but that same amalgamation of feelings could be achieved while telling the story, which Aamir Khan does. Someone like Vikram has unstoppable enigma and screen presence which should be utilised in the form of a character instead of dumbing down the narrative of the film. Overall Sketch is strictly for fans.”

Kumar Siva from gave 2.5/5 in his review, he wrote, “The first half moves at a brisk pace, while the second is double the pace, with some exciting twists. Ably supported by Thaman’s BGM and With an interesting screenplay despite a predictable plot and with perfectly placed mass scenes elevating heroism, Sketch is a decent entertainer, that’s sure to give Vikram that much needed commercial success"
