Sakalakala Vallavan Appatakkar from director Suraj is nothing short of being that typical Tamil nonsense film. At the end of the first half you might even feel That Soori was the hero of the movie. With the plot deviating alarmingly for stupidest reasons, the chances of you losing your sense of humour is quite high.
Shakthi is this young man who is taking care of the family businesses and stuff. He has this rival Chinnabuthi who is trying to beat him in every aspect. The love story of Shakthi with Anjali was going on smoothly until a family crisis forced him to marry a relative. What happens after that is what this movie mainly discussing.
The guy who was sitting two seats away from me was laughing continuously throughout the movie. Well I envy him for that ability. Finding humour even in such lame and outdated comedy scenes is indeed a blessing. The one liner of Sakalakala Vallavan might sound similar to movies like Raja Rani, but the amount of nonsense and exaggerations Suraj has added to this movie is damn too high. The jokes may work for you as a stage skit, but as I already said it might damage your sense of humour.
Jayam Ravi was okay as the typical good boy fed up with marriage and committed to family and ethics. As the movie progressed Soori seemed less disturbing. Anjali is there mainly to steam up the scenes that had her. Trisha escapes from the threat of being a skin showing show piece. Veteran comedian Vivek has been included in the story to add more slapstick nonsense. Rajendran is there as this exaggerated comical police officer. Prabhu doesn’t have much to do.
Suraj who earlier killed my understanding about physics through Alex Pandiyan, this time almost succeeded in killing my humour sense. The making is sloppy and the writing is shoddy. Not a single character is supposed to be in the sensible zone. Rhyming comedy dialogues are there. Music is peppy and enjoyable. Visuals were okay. The hero runs away from his wife as she starts to beat him, and in the next scene he saves her from a dozen of goons sent by his uncle to “invite” them to his house. Sorry if I used my logic in that scenario. Drunken song, irrelevant comedy sequences and dramatic preaching is there in abundance.
Sakalakala Vallavan on the whole was beyond disappointment. If you are a fan of the old school plastic sentiments and parallel track comedy, go for this one. Rating is 1.5/5.
