SonyLIV’s First Telugu Film ‘Vivaha Bhojanambu’ Is A Humorous Lockdown Wedding Feast


SonyLIV adds a new flavor of entertainment to its slate, with its first Telugu film ‘Vivaha Bhojanambu’. We witnessed many couples beating all odds with lockdown weddings in the past year. Bringing one such relatable story from the lockdown diaries, SonyLIV sets a lighter mood with this dramedy of a couple who decide to marry amidst the pandemic. But the real chaos sets in when a Lockdown of 21 days is announced. Inspired by true events, a Ram Abbaraju directorial, Vivaha Bhojanambu is set to launch on 27th August on SonyLIV.

The film revolves around a love story between Mahesh, a shrewd miser from a middle-class household, and Ramya who hails from a rich joint family. Taking advantage of the pandemic situation, Mahesh convinces the families to get them married in the presence of close relatives. Little did he know that a nationwide lockdown would thwart his attempts for a cost-effective marriage. What happens when a close-fisted son-in-law is locked inside a house of 14 people for 21 days? Expect a punch of laughter riots and hilarious situations in this perfectly knit lockdown story laced with oodles of comedy.

Ram Abbaraju, Director
The lockdown had taken a toll on everyone and bringing a story like Vivaha Bhojanambu is definitely the need of the hour. The film captures the essence of what we’ve gone through in the unprecedented pandemic, but with a dash of comedy. We hope the audience enjoys every bit of the film and relates to incidents that occur when a wedding takes place just before everything goes upside down. I am looking forward to its release on SonyLIV.

Satya Akkala, Actor
Vivaha Bhojanambu is a story around the lockdown that we all can relate to. The film underlines a host of hilarious and awkward instances between families who are stuck together due to the sudden lockdown post the wedding. I have thoroughly enjoyed playing Mahesh and it was no less than a riot filming this one. I can’t wait for the audience’s reactions to the film on SonyLIV.”
