In the meantime, Aravind wants to do something for his mother since he yearns for her affection. However, she just dismisses him and decides to get him married off once and for all. She soon decides to look for a bride for him. Aravind decides to marry the girl his mother has seen for him under the pretext that she will show her affection towards him after all these years if he agrees to her choice. He then decides to put an end to his relationship with Keerthi Shetty. The remainder of Seveli revolves around whether Aravind marries the girl his mother has seen for him and if he goes on to get the affection from his mother he has been seeking all these years.
Aravind Roshan has done a good job in emoting the pain a son would go through when his mother doesn't reciprocate his love for her. However, he needs to work on his expressions in romantic scenes and also improve his dancing skills. Keerthi Shetty is a pleasant sight to viewers and she has done a good job in playing her role. The person who deserves the most number of compliments is undoubtedly the lady playing the hero's mother. She has brought in her experience of playing such roles before in her previous films and nails her role in Seveli. Nellai Siva and Shakeela's comedy in the film proves ineffective and brings out very few laughs. Aside from them, the rest of the cast members in the film are relatively newcomers and much cannot be expected from them in terms of performance.
Director Ra. Anand has attempted to make a film that showcases both a son's love for his mother as well as his lover. The biggest strength of the film is its dialogues as many of them convey a strong message. However, the screenplay downplays the flow of the narrative. In addition, few scenes that have been seen in Tamil cinema before make their way yet again in Seveli and is a letdown. Jeevan's songs are enjoyable, but could have put in more effort in the background score. Ra. Anand's cinematography skills are decent.
In short, Seveli is an emotional amalgamation.
