Seemathurai” is the rural entertainer scripted and directed by Santhosh Thiyagarajan. The movie is produced by Sujay Krishna and co-produced by Shrinanth Panneerselvam.

After a series of attempts he wins over her love and Varsha accepts Geethan’s proposal. The problem arises when Varsha’s family comes to know about their relationship. Varsha’s maternal uncle Kasirajan strongly opposes her idea to marry Geethan. What happens in the end? Did they get married? Watch the film on the big screen.

Star Performance

Viji lived as a rural mother. Her activities are just the reflection of the rural women; right from her costumes, dialogue delivery and body language. Varsha had done a decent job and Geethan too. Rest of the stars had played their part neatly.


Although the script, the screenplay and the performance are good, we couldn’t digest the decade-old story. Yes, although it is a village, we could see the traces of the modern era, nowadays. But, it is completely absent in this film. If it is a present-day story, then at least a couple of people had used their mobile phones. But, we can’t spot anyone using the latest technology. Although it is not a problem, we couldn’t guess the period of the story. But, the costumes of the stars are right and it suits the rural story, well. The music is good and the BGM too. The cinematography and the action sequences receive appreciation from the audiences.

What’s There?

  • The performance of the stars are good
  • The cinematography and music receive thumbs up

What’s Not There?

  • Decade-old story
  • The dialogue and the scenes are very much predictable
  • Climax didn't impress


Seemathurai has come with a good set of actors. But, as the story is not new, the film fails to attract the audiences. If you want to watch a decent rural family story, you could try this!
