After winning appreciation from critics for his performance in Naachiyaar, GV Prakash Kumar is back to his favourite genre – comedy. He has collaborated now with Pandiraj's former associate Vallikanth, who is making his debut in the film Semma (Sema).
Cast and Crew:
Arthana Binu, who was seen in Vikranth's Thondan last year, has teamed up with GV Prakash Kumar in the latest release, Semma. Yogi Babu, who was recently in the news after his dance moves in Nayanthara-starrer Kolamaavu Kokila became talk of the town, is playing the role of the hero's side-kick.
The movie also stars Assisi Ronald Gibson, Kovai Sarala and Mansoor Ali Khan. GV Prakash himself has composed the music and the songs Sandaali and Vechchi Senjaachu seem to have struck a chord with viewers. The film has Vivek Anand's cinematography with Pradeep E Raghav on editing.
Semma is an action comedy set in the rural backdrop. The story takes an interesting turn after a bride hunt begins for the lead character, portrayed by GV Prakash. The actor's role in the movie is quite different from the ones he had done earlier. He likes to do one or the other work to keep himself engaged in the flick.
GV Prakash Kumar's movies in comedy have been well-received by the audience in the past. But this is the first time that he will be seen in a rural entertainer. With his previous film Naachiyar receiving positive reviews, there is a good amount of expectations riding on the Tamil flick.
However, the movie, on its opening day, is being affected by the bandh called by the DMK and other parties in light of the violence surrounding the protests in Tuticorin. Will the film overcome the initial hiccup and win the hearts of the viewers? Find it in their words here:
Sema has started getting mixed reviews from the netizens. It is a clean family entertainer which is said to be a "tried and tested rural drama." The story treatment is winning appreciation while people are complaining that it is a predictable entertainer.

Urutu Kannala and Sandaalee are fantastic tunes..
@ArthanaBinu is gud..Dir @valliganthan makes a competent debut with this entertainer..
Kaushik LM: #Sema 1st half - Decent! A family entertainer strong in rural nativity. A mother desperately tries to get her son married; there are lots of matchmaking episodes. @iYogiBabu is hilarious, good chemistry with hero @gvprakash. @ArthanaBinu looks very pretty in a brief part so far.
#Sema 2nd half - Kovai Sarala & Mansoor Ali Khan show their caliber and experience in comedy-drama. More enjoyable than the 1st half.
The film delivers what it promised - clean family entertainer. Good songs! Stress-buster. Worth a shot this summer! @gvprakash @pandiraj_dir
#Sema - Nothing much to complain! 2 hrs breezy timepass. Worth seeing with your family. Comedy - romance - songs - sentiment - marriage drama. Tried and tested rural cinema package works!
Haricharan Pudipeddi: @gvprakash and Yogi Babu shine together in rural comedy #Sema which, despite being largely predictable, works on the whole due to its entertaining treatment. Yogi's wisecracks are terrific. A laid back entertainer.

Sathish Kumar M: #Sema will satisy the audience who wants to LOL whiling watching the movie.. Comedy works
#Sema - Yet another Kollywood's usual Rural based comedy entertainer. Director has given more importance to Yogi Babu scenes & comedy than the script, which works to good extent.. #Sandali Song gets good response.
Kayal Devaraj: I Saw #SEMA Firsthalf Extraordinary Comedy Entertainer
@gvprakash Excellent Performance And Extraordinary BGM, Song
Sidhu: #Sema Interval: Going on coolly. @gvprakash - @iYogiBabu combo works, the jokes are mostly enjoyable. Uruttu Kannala is a jolly theatre moment!
