Story

After the national award-winning 2017 flick Shatamanam Bhavathi, director Satish Vegesna has yet again joined hands with Ace producer Dil Raju for yet another family entertainer, Srinivasa Kalyanam. With Nithiin suffering from back to back disasters Lie and Chal Mohan Ranga, let's see if Srinivasa Kalyanam can help him. Here's team AP Herald's exclusive first on net Srinivasa Kalyanam review.

Nithiin works as a designer in Chandigarh, and he gets introduced to Raashi Khanna who works at a coffee shop. As they fall for each other, they express their love to their families, following which we are introduced to their diametrically opposite families, lead by Rajendra Prasad - Jayasudha and the rich Prakashraj. How the contrasting families get to settle down agreeing on the marriage and despite conflicts, finally conduct the marriage of Nithiin and Raashi Khanna in a grand manner, by understanding and valuing traditions is what Srinivasa Kalyanam is all about.


Star Performance

Nithiin is his usual energetic self and as a family hero typically fits in, getting his act right in conveying emotions in a subtle manner. Raashi Khanna is gorgeous and gets her expressions right, and continues from where she left in Tholi Prema. Veterans Prakashraj and Rajendra Prasad are impressive in their supporting roles, while Jayasudha does a cakewalk in a role tailor-made for her.


The rest of the case including Nandita Swetha and Vidyullekha are adequate. The rest of the cast have done justice to their roles and they are fit. Nithiin has come a long way since his array of flops and has changed his body language and attitude on-screen. Raashi Khanna hit the right notes and is a saving grace.

Techinical Team

Background score by Mickey J Meyer is soothing, while of his songs, Kalyanam Vaibhogam, Ithadena, and Modaloudam are hum-worthy. Cinematography by Sameer Reddy captures the colorful visuals perfectly, presenting a real wedding setup before the audience. Editing by Madhu could have been better as the first half moves at a snail pace. Post the success of Shatamanam Bhavathi, director Satish Vegesna is back with yet another family entertainer, this time revolving around the theme of marriages, after last time exploring family unity through an old age couple. This time he's got an impressive star cast but takes time to get into the plot, and the romance track between Raashi Khanna and Nithiin looks forced and artificial while Nandita Swetha is wasted.

Analysis

The first half of Srinivasa Kalyanam takes it own sweet time to settle into the plot, while the second half has its screenplay hampered by unwarranted song placements. The conflicts in the marriage, shown in the movie are predictable, and Satish Vegesna tries hard to compensate for the lack of interestingness with the performances of veterans like Prakashraj and Jayasudha, but the extreme preachings towards the end slightly impact the predictable entertainer. Despite performances and good music by Mickey J Meyer, Srinivasa Kalyanam is let down by the boring screenplay. All said Srinivasa Kalyanam ends up as a can watch for the concept and the feel-good factor.
