Sei Movie Review
The storyline is good enough to make an engaging thriller. But Sei could have definitely been done better (bettera senjurukalam!)
Nakul has appeared on screen after quite a while. And will this movie help him? I don’t think so.
The movie’s plot is pretty interesting, though not new. We have had at least a couple of other movies recently that dealt with organ theft – Kaaki Sattai (starring Siva Karthikeyan) and Unnai Arindhal (starring Ajith Kumar).
And here in Sei, they have took the same storyline on hand. But the execution is terrible, so the movie falls flat before it could even try to take off.
As I said, the storyline is good enough to make an engaging thriller. But the director is simply clueless about what to make out of the storyline on hand.
We have Nakul playing a wannabe actor Saravedi Saravanan. He is quite passionate about his aim of becoming an actor. And he has performed well as a lucky go guy, who is careless and just enjoys life’s flow.
His dad is an ambulance driver and he is quite annoyed with Saravanan’s irresponsible behaviour.
One day he gets sick and becomes bedridden. And Saravanan has to unwillingly take the wheel of the ambulance for one day.
That day becomes a turning point where he gets to meet one problem after the other. How he overcomes the problems and escapes those who are after them makes the rest of the story.
See – even I have made the writing quite interesting in the above few lines. But what you get to watch on screen is far far below par from what you read here.
Actually the movie opens with a pretty interesting scene – a blast in an asylum. The minister (Thalaivasal Vijay) ends up resigning for this issue before he could do anything to it.
But he gets to know that this is not an accident but a planned cover up by some one who is involved in organ theft. He is killed too.
It is good in the movie that at least the bad guy is kept as a suspense.
Apart from that the movie doesn’t offer anything new or thrilling.
Most of the screenplay is shallow, uninteresting, and looks hurriedly written too.
The lady lead Aanchal Munjal is pretty much wasted. Not only her characterization is shallow, but there are some crazy attributes added to her role.
For some strange reason, the hero and heroine don’t meet at all. But the heroine follows the hero in many places because she is interested.
And what’s with the outfits and looks of the heroine and her friends?
Prakash Raj and Nasser have done their roles pretty well even though their roles are small.
In fact, their names could be the mere reason why some of the audience decided to watch the movie on screen. Unfortunately, that didn’t help too!
Overall, Sei could have definitely been done better (bettera senjurukalam!).
