Quality Production Values
Kalanam Kamaneeyam is a tale about a successful wife and a jobless husband.Director Anil Kumar has chosen a relatable point for his first film. The backdrop, the relationship between a modern couple, and ego issues are established well during the initial portions of the film. The first half of the film introduces the characters, establishes the storyline and a simple interval bang. The actual drama starts in the second half. The conflict is well balanced by showing the reasons from both sides but it doesnt go deep. Just some misunderstandings leads to the gap between the couple is not a new concept. But, logical screenplay with natural dialogues and humor made kalyanam kamaneeyam a feel-good film with relatable issue.
Music by Shravan Bhardwaj is soothing and also brings depth to the proceedings. Karthik Ghattamaneni’s camerawork is top-notch with colorful visuals. The film has meaningful dialogues. UV Concepts is known to make all their in a rich manner and the same is the case with Kalyanam Kamneeyam.
