Title :Srinivasa Kalyanam CBFC Rating : U Run-Time : 2 Hrs 20 Mins Release Date : 09-08-2018 Banner : Sri Venkateshwara Creations Cast : Nithiin, Raashi Khanna, Nandita Swetha, Prakashraj, Jayasudha, RajendraPrasad, Naresh, Sithara, Poonamkaur and Others Music : Mickey.J.Meyer DOP : Sameer Reddy Producer : Dil Raju Direction: Satish Vegesna
Sridevi (Raashi Khanna) is the daughter of a millionaire RK (Prakash Raj). Srinivas (Nithiin) is the son of Ramaraju (Rajendra Prasad) who values tradition more than money. A conflict of ideas a raise when Sridevi and Srinivas fall in love. How tradition win over materialistic ideal is the basic story of the film.
Nithiin is known for his hyper-energetic and classy youth portrayals with a touch of mass attitude. The actor touches those key points and adds more restraint to his act in Srinivasa Kalyanam. It is a difficult character to like because of the extremely righteous values it says. It comes across as preachy if not done well. That is why Nithiin deserves all the praise for making the role likeable. He has his moment in the climax and stands out among the numerous experienced artists.
Raashi Khanna looks like an angle in traditional Telugu avatar. She has been amazingly shown. The acting part is also neatly handled by the actress.
Jaya Sudha, Rajendra Prasad, Naresh and Prakash Raj provide the solid emotional anchor the movie requires. They play characters that have strong principles they adhere to, and portrayal makes that come across effectively.
Sitara, Nandita Swetha, Poonam Kaur and others are adequate in their parts that are as important as the rest of the artists.
Nithiin and Raashi Khanna Story Message about Traditions, Values Second Half
Gets preachy at times
The National Award-winning team of Shatamanam Bhavati is back again for Srinivasa Kalyanam. Director Satish Vegesna has come up with another theme that resonates with a large section of audience across the classes. The marriage and emotions today are not the same like before. It has been captured in its true essence and detail by the director.
The entire first half acts like a build-up to the marriage episode. It might, therefore, come across as little drag at times. However, there is enough fun and drama to keep one engaged.
The real highlight of the movie is in the second half after the seeds are sown in the interval. The way in which the whole marriage happens makes one wish to be part if it. The various rituals and emotions behind it are wonderfully captured. The pre-climax and climax take the feelings to new high as sentiments work out.
Mickey J Mayer has given his best again. The songs and background score are the lifeline of the movie. Sameer Reddy's cinematography is excellent. The editing is smooth and keeps the emotions flowing. Finally, producer Dil Raju needs to be appreciated for coming out with clean family entertainers that can be watched by the whole family. The values and traditions he showcases in them is something that is missing in cinemas today. Srinivasa Kalyanam is another proud addition to Sri Venkateshwara Creations banner.
Bottom-Line: Clean Family Entertainer
