Seethakaathi depicts the journey of Passionate Theatre artist Ayya Aadhimoolam (Vijay Sethupathi) who pursues his career for five decades with a huge fan following and crowds for his shows. Problems in the family put the old man in the need of money. A small twist makes him a superstar film actor with huge salary and Fans. After that Ayya falls in legal trouble, what happens next is the rest of the crux
In the first 25 minutes the film gives his journey in theatre from the 1950s till 2013 we see him performing various plays including Lava Kusa, Kovalan Kaadhali and Sathyavan Savithri. After 40 minutes film takes a different turn, the director introduced a different genre to us. The film has its enjoyable moments if you have seen Balaji Tharaneetharan’s debut film Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom you would like Seethakaathi too. Watch out for the scenes involving director Sundar (Bagavathi Perumal) and actor Saravanan (Rajkumar) they bring out enough laughs. Sunil Reddy debut actor portions are hilarious and he shines on screen entirely in the second half.
Vijay Sethpathi in the role of Ayya performed well and he totally involved in his character. Being his 25th film Vijay Sethupathi played a role of 73 years old man will be a memorable one in his carrier. Saraskanth cinematography is praiseworthy, Govind Vasantha background music is the soul of the film. Editing would have taken care to be more engaging.
Seethakaathi is an interesting film with lot of enjoyable moments
