Assessment: Festivals are fairly incomplete with out mass masala entertainers and Seetimaarr positively qualifies for that this Ganesh Chaturthi. The long-awaited movie by Sampath Nandi lastly launch and by chance, it doesn’t find yourself being a bland watch.
Karthi (Gopichand) trains younger women in his village in Andhra Pradesh in kabaddi and Jwala Reddy (Tamannaah Bhatia) does the identical in Telangana. The duo wind up in Delhi to assist them win the nationwide championship however menacing villain Singh (Tarun Arora) has different plans and abducts the AP group. Karthi now has to stretch his muscle tissues past simply coaching and produce again his group earlier than it’s too late.
Each promotional materials of Seetimaarr has fortunately made you ready that it’s a pakka mass actioner with the sports activities a part of it simply being the backdrop. Sampath Nandi nonetheless makes use of the kabaddi a part of it additionally in an entertaining method. Proper from the get go our bodies fly on-screen and this doesn’t cease until the tip. The introduction struggle is bang on and the movie takes its personal candy time to get to the precise plot. Now we have seen many sports activities dramas the place patriarchy doesn’t let women get their due and Seetimaarr too has scenes the place the lead actor mansplains ladies empowerment with dramatic dialogues to a lady’s mother and father. Many years of sexism are tackled with such dialogues nevertheless it’s not shocking since you had been ready for this in a movie that had a tune known as Pepsi Aunty. The interval episode works out nicely and makes one curious to see the opposite half of the movie.
The anticipated kabaddi bits get all of the extra dramatic with the kidnapping of an entire group. Whereas Singh, a UP don controls his space as straightforward as he chews pan, it additionally provides our hero Karthi time to point out his ‘South ka satta’ by destroying his complete empire by the tip of the movie. Sampath Nandi additionally chooses to insert picturesque and glamorous duets in midst of significant battle which looks as if an odd alternative. Think about coaches Jwala Reddy and Karthi taking a break to bop to Jwala Reddy when the group is in peril. The tune is in any other case shot nicely and will probably be remembered for lengthy.
The movie can’t be known as predictable it doesn’t matter what but when solely Tamannaah’s character was fleshed out higher. The actress tries her finest to tug off a Telangana accent nevertheless it’s laborious to discover a hint of it in what she manages. It’s excessive time makers attempt to stereotype sure languages simply by lazily putting some phrases that supposedly do the job. The motion scenes on the climax are once more top-notch and it’ll be satisfying even when it’s not your favorite style. The movie doesn’t lose tempo until the tip and Sampath must be applauded for a similar.
Gopichand all the time provides his 100% and he does the identical in Seetimaarr. He appears match and fabulous as a kabaddi coach and aces the emotional scenes too. However it seems like industrial boundaries maintain him again from displaying really what a superb actor he actually is. Tamannah’s glamour is a diversion from a testosterone excessive film as a result of in any other case her character and group appear irrelevant to the story. Digangana Suryavanshi exists for a similar motive withnothing a lot to do. Different actors, particularly the kabaddi gamers, look skilled on-screen.
The mass masalaness of all of it really make us ignore the various flaws in Seetimaarr which don’t have anything to do with the truth that there’s a powerful script backing it. This movie is a paisa vasool one on this OTT period.
