Sema (English: Awesome) is a 2018 Indian Tamil language comedy drama film directed by Vallikanth and produced by Pandiraj. The film features G. V. Prakash Kumar and Arthana Binu in the lead roles. Featuring music also composed by Prakash Kumar and cinematography by Vivek Anand, the film began production during early 2017.
In early 2016, director Pandiraj and G. V. Prakash Kumar discussed the idea of making a sequel to the director’s successful comedy film, Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga (2013). The pair then agreed in principle to make the film, with Rajkiran and Sathyaraj considered for supporting roles, before the plan was put on hold. Subsequently Pandiraj and Prakash Kumar chose to start another project, where Pandiraj would work as the dialogue writer in his assistant Vallikanth’s script. The film began production in early 2017 and developed quietly, before a press release in March 2017 revealed that the film was titled Semma and had completed its shoot.
Kuzhandhai (G. V. Prakash Kumar) has to get married within the next 3 months as per his horoscope, and he is engaged to Magizhini (Arthana Binu). Problems arise before their marriage in the form of Magizhini’s father ‘Attack’ Balu (Mansoor Ali Khan), and their wedding becomes a question mark. Does Kuzhandhai get married within that stipulated time and does he marry Magizhini is what Semma is all about.
