Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva - Lets Just Stick To Telugu Version!
Raghava Lawrence's much-awaited Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva has cleared all the hurdles and has seen the light today on Thursday, March 9. The Tamil movie is a remake of Telugu flick Pataas, which starred Nandamuri Kalyan Ram and Shruti Sodhi in the leads.
The movie is directed by Sai Ramani, while RB Choudary of Super Good Films has bankrolled the flick. The Tamil film has Sarvesh Murari's cinematography, Praveen KL's editing and Amresh Ganesh's music.
Nikki Galrani plays Raghava Lawrence's love interest, while Sathyaraj has enacted an important role in Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva. Ashutosh Rana, Vamsi Krishna, Jayaprakash, Sathish, Kovai Sarala, VTV Ganesh and many others play supporting roles.
The film begins with a ruthless and ambitious, yet funny politician GK (Ashutosh Rana) making the right moves for his son Sanjay (Vamsi Krishna) to excel in politics. A senior cop (Sathyaraj) who is miffed with GK’s unlawful business hopes that a daring officer will join the department to curb the activities. Enter Shiva (Lawrence), who engages in a half-funny, half-serious fight sequence in a forest to save a minister (VTV Ganesh). With the recommendation of the minister, Shiva takes charge as ACP in Chennai.
He moves closely with GK and helps the local thugs to earn money through illegal ways, which irks Sathyaraj’s character. An untoward incident, which involves GK’s son, however changes him, making him realize the power and duty of police. From then on, he is seen in a ‘beast mode’ taking on the baddies, except for the occasions where he meets his lady love (Nikki Galrani), who plays a TV journalist.
Lawrence, unsurprisingly, excels in stylish moves in the dance sequences, fights with grace and pulls off the role of a cop decently with his attitude. But the scenes involving his emotional flashback lack conviction and could have been developed in a better way. The character of Sathyaraj is side-lined often, while that of Ashutosh Rana faces nativity issues.
Though the film boasts a bevy of actors like Kovai Sarala, Sathish, VTV Ganesh, Thambi Ramaiah, etc, their roles appear more as extended cameos. Nikki Galrani has less performing space, and she appears in just songs, few uninteresting romance portions and the climax.
Right from the lead given to the hero introduction scene, almost the entire film follows the cliched mainstream masala entertainer pattern. The film is entirely predictable that you know it’s ending in the interval itself. Even by regular commercial cinema standard, Motta Siva Ketta Siva fails to make an impact.
