Music Director: Mickey J. Meyer
Cinematographer: Sameer Reddy
Nithiin has paired up in Dil Raju’s banner after a decade, and the actor who desperately needs a hit will be able to taste the success with Srinivasa Kalyanam. Well, let us check it out.
Vasu (Nithiin), an architect who believes in age-old traditions and affirms faith in joint family. However, Siri’s (Raashi Khanna) life and her thought-process is in complete contrast to Vasu’s ideology. Siri is the daughter of RK (Prakash Raj), a billionaire who believes that the only thing his time deserves is work and doesn’t root for traditions or old beliefs. But what happens when Vasu and Siri fall in love. When they went to enter the wedlock, will Nithiin is able to convince RK for the traditional wedding where two families unite?
The film boasts of a stellar cast with the likes of Prakash Raj, Jaya Prada, Naresh, Amani and Rajendra Prasad etc. But how ironic is that they all are wasted where they are mere caricatures. Talking about Nithiin and Rasshi they have done a decent job and are convincing in their role, but their chemistry falls flat at times. Nithiin, though has done a fair justice to his role, it is the climax scene where he emerges as a star.
The film is under Dil Raju production house, so the production values are rich enough. You certainly admire each frame which looks surreal and dreamy. We get the point that the film intends to give the right message, but what has been projected on the screen gets tedious and tiresome of too preachy and ‘sampradayam’. It fails to understand that what this gen millennial want, anything preachy just goes overboard. The music by Mickey J Mayer is okay except the title track.
This is another Brahmotsavam
