Seethakaathi Movie Short Story

A veteran theater craftsman who lives for his specialty 'enters' the universe of movies. Can the film business clutch his supreme creativity?

Seethakaathi Movie Review

Balaji Tharaneetharan's Seethakaathi is one of those movies which displays an exceptional problem. It is a film that should be talked about finally, however at that point, doing as such would likewise uncover its novel arrogance, and demolish a portion of the significant shocks it brings to the table its groups of onlookers. The film's hero, Ayya Adhimoolam (Vijay Sethupathi) is a veteran of the stage. Acting is his life, and theater his reality.

In its initial 20-25 minutes, the film gives us his voyage in theater, from the 1950s till 2013, in a somewhat direct manner. We see him performing in different plays over the periods. The substance of these plays changes as per their individual periods. During the 1950s, it is mythological, similar to Lava Kusa, however by the 1980s, we get a court show.

In a special contort, Ayya, who had denied films for his entire life, begins 'acting' in them. He turns into a hotshot, yet when Dhanapal (Sunil), a wily maker and performing artist, chooses to play astute, Ayya 'vanishes', leaving his companion Parasuraman (Mouli) and family to confront one of the strange court cases ever.

Seethakaathi Movie Full Story

For its initial 40 minutes or something like that, Seethakaathi plays out increasingly like a drama. We get the chance to see the enthusiasm that Ayya has for theater, the brotherhood he imparts to his troupe and their high respect for them, the issues in his family, which is chiefly fiscal as a result of his resolute refusal to trade off on his craft.

However, inside two or three scenes it's tone changes and the executive gives us a dull parody that is more on the lines of his introduction film, Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom. These parts not just offer help from the rock-solid drama of the underlying segments, yet in addition elevate the enthusiastic minutes (Govind Vasantha's experience score likewise does a portion of the truly difficult work) that we get from there on.

At last, Seethakaathi is a contemplation on workmanship and craftsmen. The film spells this out in a couple of cases, yet surprisingly, Balaji Tharaneetharan finds better approaches to make it outwardly intriguing - like a 15-minute, single shot of a play on Aurangzeb's last days, as a board talk on a TV slot, lastly, as a perception made by a judge while articulating his judgment. The subject may appear to be a long way from engaging for the individuals who take a gander at motion pictures just as stimulation, yet the chief, with the help of his confiding in a star, gives us a film that is educated and furthermore engaging.

Concerning Vijay Sethupathi, for whom the film happens to be his 25th, he thinks of a critical execution that as odd as it might sound, is gaudy, yet in addition fairly limited in the meantime! It is an execution that guarantees that its quality is felt all through and makes us not miss him amid the extensive parts when he isn't onscreen.
