Tadka movie review

The story of ‘Tadka: Love is Cooking’ by Dilesh K Nair and Shyam Pushkaran (who also co-wrote the original film) is unique in that it features food as an important character. At first, this old-fashioned romance is quite appealing due to the natural comedy tinge. However, it soon becomes boring and monotonous. The main reason for this is that the plot is predictable as it is based on a theme seen in many Bollywood movies. But what sets this story apart is the two protagonists’ passion for cooking and eating well, which strengthens their bond. How did the script have to go?

The director of the film Prakash Raj has tried to do his job honestly. He also manages to keep the average script interesting through his direction. Established as an excellent actor in the south and north, Prakash Raj started his directorial career in the year 2010. The first Kannada film made under his direction is ‘Nanu Nanna Kanasu’. This movie was a super hit. After this, he also directed the Tamil-Telugu film Dhoni made in the year 2014. Like acting, Prakash also has a good track record in directing. The effect of him is also being seen in the movie ‘Tadka’. The four main actors in the film have done justice to their characters.

Nana Patekar has played the role of a middle-aged man who leads a simple life. His comedic timing is second to none. But even in serious scenes, he looks strong. Actress Shriya Saran looks attractive, but she doesn’t look the kind of acting that she did in some movies like ‘Drishyam’. Both characters are the life of the film. Without meeting, without seeing, what love is like. If this is to be seen and understood, then this film must be seen. One thing stands out here, which is the dubbing of the film. Even after some artists’ voice became famous in Hindi, someone else dubbed it. Like Taapsee Pannu. Her voice sounds childish to him. Overall, ‘Tadka: Love is Cooking’ can’t be called a great movie, but it can be considered an above average entertaining movie. The film can be seen once.
