Sakka Podu Podu Raja is a 2017 Tamil comedy film directed by Sethuraman and produced by VTV Ganesh. The film features SanthanamVaibhavi Shandilya and Vivek in the leading roles. Featuring cinematography by Abinandhan Ramanujam and edited by Anthony, the film began production in October 2016.[3] This film is a remake of the 2014 Telugu movie Loukyam, with Gopichand. The film opened to generally mixed reviews, but took a decent opening at the box office.[1]

 Few years before we could not have imagined a full length comedy film with Santhanam as hero and Vivek acting second fiddle.  Lot of drama, 

The movie begins with Santa (Santhanam) helping a girl who is actually the sister of a gangster Bhavani (Sampath) to elope with her lover. An enraged Bhavani is after Santa who is now in Bengaluru. Meanwhile, Santa meets a beautiful medical student Yazhini (Vaibhavi Shandiya) and falls for her instantly.  Yazhini is least interested in him, Santa initiates many turn of events that make Yazhini embrace the love. Those ideas of Santhanam, we liked as they flowed the story fluently. When all goes well, Santa came to know that Yazhini is actually Bhavani’s younger sister. The rest is how our hero comes across several hurdles to win over Yazhini’s hands with the screenplay following the template of a high-octane action sequence. This is followed by  comedy scenes and then the romantic dance routines in exotic locations abroad. And needless to say, there are innumerable characters that walk in and out of each scene along with Santhanam. Overall Santhanam must have great say in how his character should be and the scenes and dialogues, which turned out to be apt.

From this film we analyse what is atleast somewhat different: a)The Hero's methods of enticing a don's sister  b)Even in full length comedy there can be proper dances and songs  c) Even hero turned comedian can dance and fight well.   d)Santhanam can bring on board Vivek to act with him



Verdict: 3.4 out of 5         3.4/5
