There is a good hype for Srinivasa Kalyanam as it is produced by Dil Raju. The family drama after being in the news has made its way to the cinema halls now. Read on to see how the film turns out to be.
Vasu and Sri played by Nithin and Raashi Khanna fall in love and go to their parents for their approval. Vasu's parents say yes to their marriage but Sri's dad played by Prakash Raj reluctantly approves as he does not believe in love and all the traditions which do not work in today's time. How a blunt and practical man like Prakash Raj changes himself and starts respecting the word marriage is the crux of the film.
It is difficult to pinpoint one actor who does the best in the film. Jayasudha plays her age for once and she is convincing as the traditional grandmother. Rajendra Prasad emotes well in whatever he gets. Raashi Khanna is a changed actress now and she is beautiful with her expressions.
Nithin has sleepwalked the role and looks jaded and disinterested. Prakash Raj is the only man who has a meaningful role in the film. All the artists in the film industry get some role or the other. Vidyu Leka was good in her comic role but comedy by Satyam Rajesh and Praveen was bland.
The film is a visual feast as you get to see many actors in one frame. Set work is decent but there is not much festive atmosphere in the film. There is no drama or a villain and becase of this the film looks like a tv serial all the time. So much moral values are thought that you get bored of the film in ma y places.
Songs come in and spoil the mood of the film many times. The concept of traditional marriage is getting outdated these days but the makers try to force you with such scenes which get on to you so many times making the film a bore fest in the second half.
Lack of emotions
Srinivasa Kalyanam is about traditional marriage which lacked strong scenes to connect emotionally. In some scenes, the film reminded TV serial. The grand event of Srinivasa Kalyanam is partially impressive with some cool stuff.
