Good Movie. Everybody acted very well in the movie. Songs and BGM in the movie were not good. The movie was interesting at 1st half. The movie lagged and bored a lot at 2nd half. The movie had many unwanted scenes. The movie was not worst. Good Movie.

Madcap crime thriller with Haasan at the top of his game
7 September 2014Warning: Spoilers
A bevy of glamorous models are bumped off one by one in in a diamond smuggling operation masterminded by the dastardly (but amusingly and probably ironically named) Oberoi. Part suspense crime thriller, part madcap action vehicle for Kamal Haasan as professional photographer Dilip who has been framed for the murder of the girls and is a fugitive on the run out to prove his innocence. With Oberoi played like a reserved yet partially demented Dr. Evil (from the Austin Powers franchise- years before the Austin Powers films were even conceived) coupled with almost schizophrenic scene changes, Tik! Tik! Tik! is probably as much fun today as the year it was released. The star of the show is undoubtedly Haasan who is completely in his element in this kind of film. Apparently ahead of its time plot-wise back in 1981, I managed to see a high quality Malaysian DVD pressing with English subtitles and perfectly mixed audio which brought out both the (then) clever 'ticking' sound effects interspersed throughout the film and also Ilaiyaraaja's excellent songs-- Poo Malarinthida's note perfect mix of classical and modern pop elements show why he was and probably still is miles ahead of any other music director. Tik! Tik! Tik! is a perfect reminder of a time when big starers didn't need to rely on endless fight scenes, pointless special effects and soul-less choreographed item numbers. A clever plot yet the overall simplicity of this film is what makes it.
Amazing Thriller with good Glamour
23 August 2018
One of the best movies of Dir. Bharathiraja.Isaignani Illayaraja's BGM and songs are too good. A haunting beat comes up in every murder sequence.Therye first murder scene will be very interesting and captures the entire audience. Kamalhasan would have under played and represents the best romantic moments with Madhavi. The last 1 hour will be a seat edge thriller with chases and stunts.A fight scene inside a dark room will be nice. Entire movie is filled with enough glamour since the story revolves around Models, However it will be suitable for the screenplay. Really worth for the Music and Direction. The movie was a Super hit.
