Though it’s been two years since a film of Raghava Lawrence hit the screens, he made a couple of attempts to win the hearts of people with his off screen acts recently. His Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva, the remake of Telugu hit film Pataas, hence, was expected to give him a boost with regard to his stardom. Call it a coincidence or an experiment, we are baffled when letters S, U, P, E, R, S, T, A, R popped up on screen in style. Though the actor is a self-confessed fan of Rajinikanth, we are left scratching our heads over the idea behind crediting the same moniker to him, too. Much to our surprise, the word ‘Makkal’ is added to it, making him the ‘Makkal Superstar’!
The film begins with a ruthless and ambitious, yet funny (yes, you read it right) politician GK (Ashutosh Rana) making the right moves for his son Sanjay (Vamsi Krishna) to excel in politics. A senior cop (Sathyaraj) who is miffed with GK’s unlawful business hopes that a daring officer will join the department to curb the activities. Enter Shiva (Lawrence), who engages in a half-funny, half-serious fight sequence in a forest to save a minister (VTV Ganesh). With the recommendation of the minister, Shiva takes charge as ACP in Chennai.
