The story revolves around two brothers Siva Rama Krishna (Sunil), a timid guy becomes a cop with the force of Karthik (Naga Chaitanya), a tough guy. Sivarama Krishna is assigned to take on Bagga (Ashutosh Rana), an evil smuggler. With the support of Karthik, Siva Rama Krishna earns the trust of department bashing up the goons taking on Bagga.
Nandu (Andrea Jeremiah) and Pallavi (Tamanna) two sisters also live on the same town, while the former gets married to Siva Rama Krishna the latter falls in love with Karthik. In this situation, Bagga gets to know that Karthik is behind Shiva Rama Krishna and what does the latter do in the situation? How does Karthik help his brother forms the crux.
Naga Chaitanya has showed quite a lot of improvement and this time he does his role with much ease and subtle expressions. He is stylish and impressive in the action episodes and romantic scenes.
Sunil is perfect fit for the role of cop who later transforms into powerful cop with the support of his brother. His comic timing works in the first half and at the same time he does well in the fight scenes in the latter half.
Tamanna oozes oomph and sizzles in her glamorous role. She doesn’t have much to do performance wise but makes her presence felt. However, she shares a good chemistry with Chaitanya and their combo scenes are a visual treat.
Andrea Jeremiah is good looking and does her role well. Ashutosh Rana as dreadful villain is impressive, Srinivas Reddy, Jaya Prakash Reddy and Brahmanandam are there to bring few laughs.
Cinematography by Arthur Wilson is first-class and the film looked quite colorful, Thaman’s music is good and the background score has required essence. Dolly (Kishore Kumar Pardasani) direction is good while the screenplay is taut packed with racy entertainment. Editing is crisp and neat. Production values of Sri Sai Ganesh Productions are standard.
Tadakha being the remake of Vettai follows the same script and screenplay without many changes. Both Sunil and Naga Chaitanya have equally good and challenging roles and they have done quite well. The first half of the film is racy and entertaining while the second half lacks the pace at times. The comedy could have been high in the second half as well. Scenes between the Naga Chaitanya and Tamanna are entertaining likewise the emotional bonding between the two brothers have been captured nicely. Climax is effective and had the solid punch.
Thadaka has all the right commercial elements including action, humor, romance, glamour with good technical values, also sticks to the Telugu audiences nativity factor. The film has all the needed elements to set the cash registers ringing at the Box-Office.
Racy fun-filled action entertainer that doesn’t disappoint!!!
