There is no way that any of us had ever encountered anything quite like the Sembi before in our whole lives. However, this particular telling of the story has a new group of characters and takes place in a different setting than the original. The very first scene, in which Veerayi advises Sembi on how to remove honey from the honeycomb, is when we first get enamored of both Veerayi and her many adorable features. In this scene, Veerayi is teaching Sembi how to remove honey from the honeycomb. The visual extravaganza that takes place in the initial few moments enlightens us with important information about their lives.

Both Phoenix Prabu and Sri Krish have contributed to the production of the dance choreography and action episodes, respectively. The movie did not succeed in making a significant effect at the box office, despite the fact that it received positive reviews from critics.

What’s the story of Sembi

In the hilly parts of Kodaikanal, Sembi, who is ten years old, and her grandmother Veerayi (Kovai Sarala), who is an apiarist, live in tranquilly among the natural surroundings. They enjoy a wonderful life up until the point when three powerful people with a voracious appetite for sexual delights put an end to all of their hopes and goals.

When Sembi is assaulted by a police officer, and her grandmother is forced to drop the charges against the officer, the grandmother is left with no choice but to beat the officer to death.

After gaining their freedom, the two travelers get on a bus known as the Anbu that is traveling from Kodaikanal to Dindigul. Can the people ride on the bus, who come from a variety of backgrounds and walks of life, despite the fact that political meddling is taking place, deliver justice to the indigenous lady and her innocent granddaughter?

Cast & Crew of Sembi

Kovai Sarala, Ashwin Kumar Lakshmikanthan, Thambi Ramaiah, Nanjil Sampath, Pala. Karuppiah, G. Gnanasambandam and Mullai Arasi star in Sembi. Produced by R. Ravindran, Ajmal Khan, and Reyaa under the umbrellas of Trident Arts and AR Entertainment, this film is directed by Prabhu Solomon. M. Jeevan is the one in charge of the camera work.

The work that Ashwin Kumar has done is quite good, and the strength of his character is sufficient. The events that take place in the second half of the story, on the other hand, should have been more engaging and dramatic. Even though it was brilliantly shot, the sequence in which all 24 passengers transferred to another bus was not beneficial to the story’s progression.

The director of Sembi has succeeded in making us experience the anguish that the principal characters in the film are going through, which demonstrates that the film is an honest endeavor. The cinematography in “Jeevan” is of the highest caliber, and the beautiful settings of “Kodaikanal” are a feast for the viewer’s eyes. The music and the background soundtrack were composed by Nivas K Prasanna, who contributed to making the most emotional scenes stronger. Applause is in order for the costume designer and the makeup artist, who deserve it for adding some realism to the screen.

The ferocity with which Kovai Sarala delivers her performance is a joy to behold. She has more than lived up to the expectations of the part, and she is the driving force behind the movie.

Even though she’s a little performer, Nila does a fantastic job in her role. The ability of the director to coax strong performances from the actors becomes both a strength and a weakness for the movie, as many of the sequences end up being too depressing for their own good. If the creators had toned down the intensity of the characters during these sequences, it’s possible that they might have worked better.
