Synopsis : The fate of four friends, who work at a garage, witnesses drastic changes after they lock horns with a dreaded gangster in town.

Review:
Jeeva aka Sketch (Vikram) is the go-to guy in a north Madras-based garage run by Settu (Hareesh Peradi). He is also in charge for seizing the vehicles of loan defaulters. It was when Durai (Aruldoss), who was once the reliable guy of Settu, got injured that Sketch, the former's nephew, replaced him. Ravi (RK Suresh), who was once Durai's aide, isn't happy with Settu for making Sketch his right hand. An uneducated person, Sketch has a family which includes father, mother and a younger brother, and he loves to spend his time in the garage with his three friends — Kumar, Bhaskar and Guna.

One day, while he and his friends are seizing a vehicle, he happens to meet Ammu (Tamannaah), whom he falls in love with. His initial attempts to impress her misfires, though he succeeds over time. Meanwhile, Shaktivel (Abhishek), a new cop, has been posted in town to check the gangster Royapuram Kumar (Baburaj)'s illegal activities. Settu, who has an eye on Kumar's vintage car, tells Sketch that his long time wish is to own the vehicle as it once belonged to his father. Sketch and friends take up the challenge — they manage to divert Kumar's attention by playing mind games and win the task. A furious Kumar hatches plans to finish off the four-member gang.

While Settu celebrates his success, Sketch starts losing his friends one by one. The cops, on one hand, are after Kumar, while Sketch, with the help of Maari (Soori), a vehicle dealer, tries to find the people behind his friends' plight.

A template masala film, Sketch, solely relies on Vikram, and works in parts. The actor has done an effortless job in pulling off his role. All the actors have done justice to their characters. Thaman's contribution stands out next to Vikram's, thanks to his songs and BGM. However, the placement of the songs spoils the mood. The romantic scenes do not appear convincing as the heroine's character lacks proper development. Fight sequences, intriguing pre-interval and unexpected pre-climax portions add weight to the otherwise OK-ish film, which has a message, too, towards the end.

Vikram, who is known for his deep and intense roles, has been wasted in this movie with a plot in search of a purpose. Everything is contrived, fake and one cannot suspend one''s disbelief at any juncture. The movie meanders along aimlessly, and they try to instill morality and a lesson towards the end which is equally laughable. Our gullible Tamil brothers need to stop importing actresses from the North only for their skin color. The plasticized doll which has been used as a heroine cannot act if her life depends on it. To add insult to it, both her character, and her skin color, does not match either a Tamil, or a Tamil Brahmin which her character is. Shameful excuse of a movie.
