Senior actress Kovai Sarala needs no introduction to the Telugu and Tamil audiences. In her illustrious career, Kovai Sarala starred in various roles. She is popularly known for her comedic roles. After a long time, she played a lead and serious role in the Tamil film Sembi.
This gritty drama was released on December 30. It was directed by Prabhu Soloman, whose last film was Rana Daggubati's Aranya. Prabhu Soloman is known for making films that speak about the issues prevailing in society. Sembi also falls under the same category. The buzz is that the movie is now being released in Telugu.
It revolves around the life of a grandmother (Kovai Sarala) who fights against the people who sexually assault her granddaughter. Tamil critics are praising the movie as a powerful outing about child abuse. Though the climax and a few portions are being termed as drawbacks, everyone is unanimously praising the performance of Kovai Sarala.
Though it may not become a commercial success, this may remain a solid comeback film for the talented veteran actress.
