Seema Raja (Sivakarthikeyan) is the heir of Singampatti royal king family. His father (Napolean) is a former Zamindar has a problem with a neighbouring Puliampatti village. Seema Raja is a happy-go-lucky young man, who spends most of his time with his friend and accountant Kanakku (Soori). He falls in love at first sight with the local village school PT teacher Suthanthira Selvi (Samantha Akkineni). Selvi belongs to Puliyampatti, where Kaathadi Kannan (Lal) and his second wife Kaaleeswari (Simran) seeking to take revenge on Seema Raja and his family live. who is planning to take farming land from villagers and build windmills on it. Our hero, after his father dies, is heartbroken as he could not fight the machinations of Kannan and Kaleeswari and becomes a changed man. Seema Raja gets influenced by his grandfather’s story (told in a flashback) about the valour of his ancestor — the great warrior Kadambaveera Raja (Sivakarthikeyan), who fought against Allaudin Khilji’s army. Similarly, he decides to take on the villains.
Sivakarthikeyan, as usual, steals the show with his screen presence and comedy timings. He also impresses in the historic part of the film. The comedy scenes between Soori and Siva Karthikeyan is missing. Samantha looks fit in the Silambam scenes. While Simran is good as baddy villain. Lal is totally wasted.D Imman’s music is hummable.
Seemaraja has no proper story, it was not live up to the hype. Sivakarthikeyan and Ponram combo does not give best for the third time. Thanks for historical drama and some fun moments.
