    Settai Movie Review

    By Shanmugan

    Comedy films in the last two years have impressed Tamil audience. Light-hearted films like Kalakalappu, Oru Kal Oru Kannadi and a few movies including last week release Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga have been taken well by the Kollywood cine-goers. Taking note of this, many filmmakers are opting to make film on this tried-and-tested genre as the option is not risky considering the budget.

    However, UTV Motion Pictures, which had produced Delhi Belly, an adult comedy film, decided to remake it in Tamil by doing away with explicit contents, which would not have gone well with the local audience. The Hindi version was a huge hit. As a result, the expectation from the Kollywood version are obviously high. Has it lived up to people's expectations? Read review to know it...

    It is about three roommates, JK (Arya), a journalist, a graphic artist played by Premgi and a reporter Nadupakkam Nakki (Santhanam). They are chased around city by gangsters after a stool sample mix-up. Madhu (Hansika), an air hostess and the girlfriend of JK, gets a packet and she passes it to her beau.

    JK carelessly hands over it to Nakki to take it to home. On his way to home, Nakki is distracted by a streetside tandoori chicken stand of dubious hygienic standards and eats chicken that upsets his stomach. Immediately, he meets a doctor, who asks for a stool sample and the characters soon learn that it's unwise to mix up one's stool sample with a million-dollar packet, thereby triggering to set the plot in motion. Now, the three friends are targeted by a suitably cold-blooded criminal and his gang. What happens next should be seen on-screen.

    Director Kannan, as said before, has tweaked the storyline to suit the local audience. More importantly, there are no cuss words and no adult one-liners, and the much-talked kissing scene in the film is just a camera trick. But there are toilet jokes. Continue reading the review on the slideshow...

    Boisterous And Incredible Film

    Settai is a boisterous and incredible film with great chemistry between the actors. Kannan has weaved a good comic plot around three roommates. It also shows how the three deal with careers, love and happiness.

    Peppered With One-liners...

    The script is peppered with one-liners bound to become popular among youths. The antics of the three characters have been vividly captured by innovative camera movements. Witty dialogues and tight screenplay complement each other.

    Settai Movie Review

    The drawback of the film is that people, who have seen the original version Delhi Belly, would not like Settai. It is because the core content is missing in the Tamil version and the first half is bit slow. S Thaman's songs like 'Agalathey Agalathey...', 'Laila laila...' and 'Poyum poyum indha...'. are good.

    Arya, Santhanam And Premji's Combo Works

    Arya, Santhanam, and Premji's combo works big time. The dialogues mouthed by them will break the funny bones of the audience. Hansika and Anjali are equally good and they are glamorous too. Last but not least, Neetu Chandra's special song will be taken well.


    Verdict: Watch it if you have not seen Delhi Belly.
