As known earlier, Motta Siva Ketta Siva remake of super hit Telugu movie ‘Pattaas’ stars Raghava Lawrence and Nikki Galrani in lead roles with an ensemble star-cast involving Sathyaraj, Ashutosh Rana, Kovai Sarala, Satish, Sriman and few more prominent actors. The film is directed by Sai Ramani, who earlier made his debut directorial with the film ‘Singam Puli’ and is produced by RB Choudary of Super Good Films.


Emotionally broken down by his father (Sathyaraj) duty consciousness as a police officer, his son Shiva (Raghava Lawrence) at his childhood elopes. Years later, he becomes IPS officer and gets posted to Chennai and he keeps annoying his father with his contrastive nature of being fraudulent and corrupted police officer. He gets acquainted with the city’s most notorious don (Ashutosh Rana) and keeps hurting his father’s sentiments. But an unexpected turn of events gets Shiva to take up the honesty and seek revenge for a reason upon the baddie.


When it’s a Telugu film with commercial elements, you’re not supposed to confine towards the box of analysis. It’s a tailor made film that definitely caters to the bunch of audiences, who aren’t bothered about logical quotients and technical brilliant flashes, but just a series of glamorous amusements from the missies on the screens, unlimited punch dialogues and rigorous action sequences. Well, there happens to be a serious situation by the climax, where the heroine cries out for hero’s help to save her from time bombs set upon her. Guess what? You’ll get exhausted laughing out loud for the reply you hear from our protagonist. We aren’t pretty sure about what’s actually the director or dialogue writer would have envisaged upon this. But the entire theatre gets hooked up with laughter. End of the show, you’ll get to realize that it’s strictly for the extremely loaded commercial entertainer. When it comes to technical aspect, there isn’t much to speak about. In fact, the director and technicians themselves have worked carefree and careless mode. The CG works of that Anna Flyover funny sequence shot in Green Matte format is the cheapest ever work that anyone would prefer. There are few such instances in the film, but again who cares about these detailing if their intentions are about to enjoying the loud noisy punch dialogues, Larger than life stunt sequences and glamorous leg shakes from the sultry gals.


It’s out and out Raghava Lawrence show. He clearly knows what the audience wants from him and what he is capable of. His dialogue deliveries, flirty romantic episodes as he carries out in all his movies and not to miss his sparkling flash points of dance sends out an impeccable sign of acceptance from his fans.... There are chances for us to get shocked on seeing the sudden glamorous transformation of Nikki Galrani. We have seen her voguish in many movies, but here it’s slightly beyond her usual limits. Ashutosh Rana is the apt choice for baddie and Sathyaraj is convincing. Satish, Sriman, Kovai Sarala and cameo by Naan Kadavul Rajendran could be considered as passable ones.

What works?

Raghava Lawrence

What doesn't work?

Almost everything except Raghava Lawrence

Overall, Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva carries an old patterned 90s tale of mass masala genre. Had the director crafted a screenplay with some matured and brilliant approach to storytelling, it would have been a different stroke from the version we see it now on the screens.

Verdict : Heavy loaded ‘Mass Masala’ dish that offers some hiccups for audiences.

Rating : 4/10
