From Delhi Belly, a Bollywood Block buster, which was released in the year 2011, Settai is inspired. But lost the soul of the original.
Arya-Santhanam combination had worked wonders in the past. Their last outing “Boss Engira Baskaran” was a big laugh riot.
This time, the actors have teamed up with another popular comedian – Premgi Amaren. But they succeeded in evoking laughter only in parts.
This whole humour involving conversations between three friends loses charm over a period of time. While some of Santhanam’s witty lines are cheerful, but on the whole, only turn irksome and repetitive at some point.
Audience would be in the place to look for better and sensible lines from him, but disappointment is all that you find at the end.
Hansika Motwani and Anjali play the female leads. Hansika once again plays an air hostess after her successful film, “Oru Kal Oru Kannadi.” Anjali, who has done deglamorised roles in her previous outings, appears as a Mumbai-based journalist working for an English daily.
The rest of the cast include Nassar, Ali and Neetu Chandra. S Thaman’s songs like ‘Agalathey Agalathey…’, ‘Laila laila…’ and ‘Poyum poyum indha…’. are good.
For those who have not seen Delhi Belly, Settai will be an all together new fun ride. But settai disappoints the audience who saw Delhi Belly.
