1/ I disapprove;
2/ You've been naughty;
3/ What a shame;
4/ How embarrassing for you;
5/ Isn't life unfair sometimes!
6/ I commiserate with your sadness/suffering/ill treatment.

Sometimes represented as Tch Tch or Tut Tut, Tsk is more a vocal sound than an actual word, and "pronounced" by forming a T-sound, but then sucking lightly on the palate. People only say "Tisk tisk" as a parody of the actual sound, making fun of the act of disapproval or shaming.
1/ Tsk Tsk! You're far too young to smoke!
2/ Tsk tsk, Tracking mud inside? I'm telling on you!
3/ Homeless and derelict, at age 20? Tsk tsk!
4/ They called you that in front of everybody? Tsk tsk!
5/ All those people, thrown out of work for the sake of more profits? Tsk tsk!
6/ You poor thing, three broken bones in one year? Tsk tsk!

TSK TSK” is the sound created when you hit your tongue against the roof of your mouth / back of your teeth.

It is a sound most Indians resort to when they are speechless and / or wish to convey they are sorry about something, typically a bad news / the poor state of affairs in the country – death, famine, epidemic, the likes!
TSK TSK!!!

After all the respect I endow on you, this is how you behave!!!

You disappoint me!
