Eetti Tamil Movie Review, Rating

What Is Good

  • Atharvaa
  • Script
  • Interval Block

What Is Bad

  • Editing
  • Music
Bottom Line: Overall, 'Eeti' is a stereotype commercial movie blended with 'Sports' genre


Atharvaa is a young sportsman who is trying hard to get into next phase of life. He has the potential to go but various factors are blocking him. His coach is a motivating factor, but that alone doesn't help him. He reaches Chennai and then he comes to know the politics behind the selection. Sri Divya is the female lead and she has essayed a role of motivating Atharvaa. There is a twist in interval block and we are not going to reveal and spoil the suspense. As usual, how Atharvaa overcomes all odds and tastes success is the rest of the story.

Star Performance

It's definitely Atharvaa Murali. What a performer he is ! He has completely dedicated himself to the role. His acting skills are already noted in 'Paradesi'. But he has taken some new challenge and he has lived up to it. His hard work is evident in each frame. Sri Divya is beautiful. She did some glamour in song portions. But her performance is just the same from 'Varuthapadatha Vaalibar Sangam'. Based on the gravity of the role, she has to make more stellar performances. In most scenes she is just clueless as what is going around. RNR Manohar as the bad guy is also effing perfect. His transformation is one of the surprises to be watched out for. And his side kick has done justice. Rest of the characters have already proved their mettle and they don't need special introduction. 'Aadukalam' Naren, Jayaprakash also showed some stellar performances.

Techinical Team

Technical wise the movie is not so strong. GV Prakash's back ground score is good. But he fails to create an ambiance with songs. Raja Mohammad who has handled the cuts should have worked a lot more. The second half narration is a big let down. If the same momentum was kept in Second half, 'Eeti' would have been a milestone movie in Tamil cinema. The production values are good and there are no flaws. Ravi Arasu who has been an assistant to Vetrimaaran has tried to sketch a movie similar to 'Pollathavan'. But he still has a long way to go.


'Eeti' is not a brilliant sports movie like 'Bhaag Milka Bhaag', 'Chak De India' or 'Mary Kom'. It is a simple story which has routine commercial elements. The movie is not so bad at the same time it is not so good too. The movie will be a lot better if some cuts are made in both first half as well as second half. The pre interval block shift gears as all characters come across each other and it was neatly done. But the momentum was never kept in second half. The balance is lost some where.
