Gopichand’s action drama ‘Citymar’ has been postponed several times due to the pandemic. It can be seen in theaters today at the auspicious Ganesh festival.
Let’s find out the pros and cons.
Karthi (Gopichand) works at a bank in the village of Kadiyam near Rajamundry. His job is to coach Kabaddi’s women’s team. His goal is to see his village team represent Andhra Pradesh state in the Kabaddi National Championship.
He trains village girls to become professional players. He and his team land in Delhi for the Championship, and while they prepare for D-Day, Makkan Singh (Tarun Arora) kidnaps the girls.
How will Karthi rescue them from Makkan Singh’s hold before the match starts and why is Makkan Singh targeting Karthi?
In the role played by the gallery, Gopichand is in his element. He is fit and fit for the role.
Tamannaah plays a typical Masala heroine and provides a glamor quotient in the song ‘Jwala Reddy’. Rahman, Gopichand’s brother-in-law, is fine.
Tarun Arora appears as the main villain. Digangana Suryavanshi plays Tamannaah’s second violin.
Soundar Rajan’s first-class cinematography and rich production value are its main assets.
Mani Sharma comes with a mass beat that fits the genre of the movie. The editor could have been more strict. Action stunts are the best.
Rich visuals and action scenes
General story and scenario
Expecting novelty in the stories and screenplays of real popular movies is like finding water in the desert. This film follows a proven formula. But how did only a handful of popular entertainers become blockbusters?
Even Formula Masala actuators must have rhythm or flow. Only people who fit these settings will click on the cash register.
Director Sampath Nandi tried to follow the same pattern in his latest film “Seetimaarr.”
Everything we see in “Seetimaarr” gives the impression that we’ve seen them before. The hero of the women’s national team coach is not new. The villains who prey on the hero’s relatives are as old as the Himalayas. This is a typical template for a commercial pop hero movie. But Sampath Nandi tried to make the package in a way that would appeal to a core audience.
He is sure to work with the public, adding elements of Kabaddi’s plays, women’s issues, education and local pride to this story. Besides, there is an attractiveness index.
There are many problems with this story, but we will correct certain things. Gopichand inspires the girls to fight alone instead of bravely saving the girls. Such a scene worked. The latter episode of Posani Krishna Murali, the girls’ attempts to escape from the kidnappers, and the final match scene are worthy of ‘Setimar’.
Episodes like Digangana’s Pelli choopulu, chatter between Telangana and the Andhra team, and many other official scenes annoy us. You can also expect some twists and turns. Action episodes are too much. As in all masala movies, logic throws.
Despite this imbalance, the film works to some extent for B and C center audiences. This could bring festivals to theaters in cities and towns after a long hibernation in the void caused by a prolonged plague.
In a word, ‘City Mar’ is a sports drama with popular elements. It’s an ordinary masala movie with a lot of ura mass.
conclusion: Masala ‘flute’
