Seema Raja (Sivakarthikeyan) and his father (Napoleon) are scions of a royal family and they are hugely respected by people in their locality.
A happy-go-lucky youngster, Seema Raja has a whale of time with his friend Maths (Soori) and comes across Suthanthira Selvi (Samantha), a silambam teacher, and falls for her.
There is another influential family in the area. Its head (Lal) and his wife Kaleeshwari (Simran) have a grudge on Seema Raja and Ariya Raja as they are unable to stomach the respect enjoyed by the royal clan.
The brother-sister duo hatch various plans against the Rajas and do all sorts of dirty tricks to bring their fame down. How Seema Raja successfully overcomes all hurdles forms the crux of the film.
Here is another cracker of a film from the combo of Sivakarthikeyan and director Pon Ram, after the blockbusters Varuthapadatha Vaalibar Sangam and Rajini Murugan.
Sivakarthikeyan simply sizzles in his role and the flashback scenes, in which he appears as king, are a scream. Samantha glows literally and the beauty has an interesting role to do.
Simran is back with a bang with this film and her role with negative shades is a delight to watch. Napoleon, Soori, Lal, Yogi Babu and Manobala do justice for their respective roles. Watch out for some interesting cameos too.
D Imman has played to the gallery and has given songs that are familiar to ears. Balasubramaniem’s cinematography is colourful and catchy, while Vivek Harshan’s crisp editing makes the film interesting to watch.
On the flip side, Seema Raja encourages stalking just like the previous films of Sivakarthikeyan. Also, certain scenes are predictable and lengthy too. But these things may not stop you from enjoying Seema Raja, which is a mass masala entertainer.
