Sita Movie Review: Kajal Aggarwal overacts, Bellamkonda Sai cannot act in pointless film

Director Teja's comeback of sorts, Sita is a yawn-inducing mind-numbing film that tries to be a modern take on the Ramayana. Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas is caricaturish while Kajal overacts in this film. Save your money.

Movie Name:Sita

Director:Teja

Sita, directed by Teja, begins with the flashback of young Ram, who doesn't have a rosy childhood. His uncle (played by Bhagyaraj), on the doctor's advice, leaves him in a monastery in Bhutan, away from any contact of the outside world. Ram is asked to wait for Sita and his uncle advises him to look after her.

As you get ready for a modern-day Ramayana, you're introduced to Sita (Kajal Aggarwal), who oversells her performance by several million dollars. In fact, she acts on behalf of her co-star Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas as well. Sita owns a construction firm and wants to construct a mall. She is in need of money and signs an agreement with Basavaraju (a funny Sonu Sood) saying she is willing to be in a live-in relationship with him for a month. Yes, roll your eyes.

If you think this is absurd, then wait for umpteen number of illogical and pointless scenes that are thrown at you every five minutes. Bellamkonda is portrayed as a manchild. So much so, that he sees a woman with an unbuttoned shirt and helps her button it. That's not all.

If he doesn't have tea at 10.30am sharp, he starts behaving like a child. The kind who get adamant if their mother doesn't buy them chocolate. What is weirder is that he is a man in his late 20s, but keeps making the sound 'uh-oh'. At this point, you've already given up and are groaning 'uh-oh' and rolling your eyes at the absurdity unfolding on the screen.

Director Teja must have thought showing Sita as the owner of a construction firm is the idea of a progressive characterisation. But Kajal Aggarwal's character tries to behave like an intellectual. However, she fails miserably on that front. She is perennially angry and thinks that she can get away by raising her voice. But, when she does that, it ends up being inadvertently funny.

In all the commercial films, it is the men who body-shame the women. But Kajal is a pioneer in this regard and shames her personal assistant. She tells her PA, "Fatso, go to the gym." Two-minute silence for our modern-day Sita. The entire film is full of ridiculous moments. All of them belonging to the category 'it's so bad that it's good'.

You are offered some respite with quirky comedy by villain Sonu Sood and his mentor Tanikella Bharani. It is these two and their sidekicks, who provide the much-needed comic relief in this never-ending torture.

Teja's film is full of contradictory ideas. He shows Sita as an intellectual woman, but she ends up fighting with bank officials because she doesn't have the necessary documents. He portrays Bellamkonda as a man with supernatural abilities. Like Chitti in Robot, he memorises a book on the Indian legal system in just a few minutes. That's not it. He puts up an argument in court when his supporter yells, "Ochesadu Ambedkar (our Ambedkar has arrived)."

He tells a cop to not arrest a woman after sunset and goes on to bash them inside the police station. It goes on and on for two hours and you cannot sleep in peace in the theatre either.

In short, Sita is a film of two people miscast on such a level that is terrible. Not to mention how problematic the film is.

Director Teja's comeback of sorts, Sita is a yawn-inducing mind-numbing film that tries to be a modern take on the Ramayana. Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas is caricaturish while Kajal overacts in this film. Save your money.

1.5 stars out of 5 for Sita.
