Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva
Raghava Lawrence,Sathyaraj, Nikki Galrani, Ashutosh Rana, Vamsi
Raghava Lawrence's Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva is a crass, loud and brainless mass masala that can be enjoyed only if you are a robot, who can laugh and cry, whenever the director introduce so called crude comedy and sentiments. Do not forget to carry ear plugs or a Saridon-or both. A migraine is guaranteed.
Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva is about a corrupt IPS (!!)officer Shiva (Lawerence), who gets transferred to Chennai and irks Commisioner of Police( Sathyaraj) by supporting criminals and illegal activities. Only later we are informed that Shiva is Commissioner's son and he takes revenge as his dad's obsession towards the police job was responsible for his mom's death. But as soon as our hero's dad enlightens him about the real story on why he couldn't save his mom and unveil the deadly face of gangster GK (Ashutosh Rana) and his brother (Vamsi Krishna), Motta Shiva becomes Ketta Shiva for the baddies!
Irony is that Raghava Lawerence fights against a rapist in Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva but the film is filled with several rape glorifying dialogues. An abucted girl in the film says 'Dad... at least ask them to rape and murder me, I can't see these ugly faces', perhaps director Sai Ramani has written this dialogue to increase the comedy quotient. To bring out romance between Lawrence and Nikki Galrani, Sai Ramani again used similar distasteful lines. But we shouldn't question any of these nonsense because our hero will fight against criminals post intermission and audiences should ideally wait for that!
The film's title card reads 'Makkal Superstar' Raghava Lawerence and from the word go, he tried to replicate the mannerisms of two well proven Tamil mass heroes Rajinikanth and Vijay, however the actor should understand all these gimmicks will work only if he had a good script.
Overall, Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva is nothing but a laboriously long, patience-testing exercise. Avoid this crap.
