The film directed by Sampath Nandi is gearing up for a theatrical release on September 10
Sports dramas are the toast of the season. The personal, professional highs and lows of a sportsperson's journey, despite following a similar template, have the potential to engage, uplift the spirits of audiences like no other genre in cinema. This Vinayaka Chavithi (September 10), a Kabaddi-themed sports drama, Seetimaarr, starring Gopichand, Tamannaah Bhatia, Digangana Suryavanshi and Bhumika Chawla, will be the only mainstream Telugu film to hit theatres across Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The trailer of this Sampath Nandi directorial was unveiled by Ram Pothineni on Tuesday.
Seetimarr, expectedly, goes the Bigil way, in the sports drama-meets-mass entertainer space, where there's plenty of action in and beyond the Kabaddi court. The lead actors in the film play coaches of rival teams, comprising sportswomen from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. There's an adept dose of motivation that Gopichand gives to the players in his team as they rigorously prepare to bag top honours at a national level event. Given this is a story about women in general, the hero can be seen taking on misogyny, talking gender parity at every given opportunity.
The trailer is filled with one punchline after the other like 'Ee batch ayye lopu match ayipovali', 'Kalam garu kalalu kannaru, pagati kalalu kaadu' to name a few. Mani Sharma's rousing background score amplifies the energy of the trailer that promises to be a feast for the masses. Tarun Arora is cast as the badass villain who wants to see the end of the lead protagonist at any cost. Popular actors like Pragathi Suresh, Annapurna, Rao Ramesh make their presence felt too.
Romance, sports, action, emotion and pulsating music - Seetimarr has got it all. Srinivasaa Chhitturi has produced the film under Srinivasaa Silver Screen. Cinematographer S Soundar Rajan has also worked on the project, while Pavan Kumar is its presenter. For audiences who've been missing the excitement and buzz at theatres, Seetimarr looks set to provide whistle-worthy entertainment. SunNXT has grabbed the streaming rights for the film.
