Rekka Tamil Movie Review

Flight mode


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.


In this sixth release of him in this year, Vijay Sethupathi tries his hand at the templated ‘Madurai masala’ formula of Tamil cinema. Though the story is wafer thin, the actor gives his best to it.

Lakshmi Menon plays the typical ‘loosu ponnu’ of Kollywood. Others in the cast, including Sathish, K S Ravikumar, Harish Uttaman and Kabir Khan, are okay.

Cinematography adds pace to the proceedings, while D Imman’s music is average. Editing is a highlight. Director Rathina Siva, while deciding to make a super hero subject with Vijay Sethupathi, should have focussed more on the script. But still, this Rekka flies high to an extent.
