Tik Tik Tik is credited as India's first space film and sees the Jayam Ravi – Shakti Soundar Rajan duo reunite after their zombie film Miruthan.
Plot – India's Defence Space Division (DSD) has to foil an asteroid attack which has potentially disastrous consequences for the Tamil Nadu populace. Their plan involves destroying the large asteroid with a powerful missile before it can enter Earth's atmosphere. To make matters interesting and cinematic, the Indian crew has to steal this missile from a Chinese space ship. A father-son angle (with Ravi's adorable son Aarav making his debut) adds to the film's emotional quotient.
Final Word – Tik Tik Tik's USP is its space setting which warrants a visit to a big screen. Director Shakti Soundar Rajan dares to be different yet again and he executes the technical requirements of the film competently. Had the content been more gripping and had the lead characters encountered more challenges, the viewing experience could've been wholesome.
