Sixer: Pitch report
Aadhi (Vaibhav), a civil engineer, leads a happy life with his parents (Ilavarasu and Sri Ranjani) and close friend (Sathish). His only worry is- he suffers from nyctalopia (night blindness).
As he is unable to see anything after 6 pm, he makes sure that he reaches home before that (we are shown that Cook Kandasamy, the legendary character played by Goundamani in Chinna Thambi, is his grandfather).
One day, when he is on the way to home in the evening, his two-wheeler develops trouble and he calls his friend for help. However, before helps reaches him, the place gets filled with protesters who are staging an agitation against a goon-turned-politician (RNR Manohar).
A TV reporter Krithika (Pallak Lalwani) mistakes Aadhi for the leader of the protesters and highlights him. This earns him the wrath of the evil politician.
In the meantime, while Krithika falls for Aadhi, the politico goes after his life. How Aadhi manages both of them by hiding his illness is what Sixer is all about.
Sixer, directed by Chachi starring Vaibhav, Ilavarasu, Sri Ranjani, Palak Lalwani, Sathish, Radha Ravi and RNR Manohar in key roles, is a fun-filled entertainer from the word go.
After Kappal and Meyadha Maan, Vaibhav gets a role that suits him well and delivers goods. Pallak Lalwani, despite looking beautiful, fails on performance part, especially the lip sync.
Sathish tickles the funny bone well with his one-liners, while RNR Manohar’s character is very weak. The likes of Ilavarasu, Sri Ranjani and Radha Ravi do complete justice to their respective roles.
Music (by Ghibran) and cinematography are certainly the movie’s plus points, while editing could have been more crispy. There are some unwanted and lengthy scenes in the flick.
The film is good in most parts, but the logical loopholes and silly comedy test our patience. Though Sixer is not a boundary for Vaibhav, he is certainly not out in this flick.
