Srinivasa Kalyanam Movie Review: Please Save Me From This Overdose Of Sweetness
Srinivasa Kalyanam is 2018 romantic film starring Nithin and Rashi Khanna in lead roles. The film is directed by Satish Vegesna who’s mainly famous on making family-oriented films which teach values and morals most of the time.
Well, most of us have been outgrown with films like this which were quite popular in the 90s and this is not just in Tollywood, it even happened in Bollywood as well. Well, we all know that filmmaker who is famous for putting too much of family values, cultures and reformed villains, you know whom I’m talking about, Sooraj Barjatya. Srinivasa Kalyanam is about a young educated guy who lives in a joint family which is like a home to him with people there to look after him and helps him in sticky situations. On the other hand, there is a billionaire heiress who lives life on her own terms and they end up meeting each other by coincidence. Their friendship blossoms to love when they start exchanging conversations and decide to get married.
But before the D-day of every couple, there are many obstacles encountered when the girl’s father is also undergoing an emotional turmoil in his palatial mansion. Just like Sooraj Barjatya’s films dealt with wedding preparations in full swing, this one also showed the preparations of weddings in South India ranging from engagement to Haldi to Mehndi to Var Pooja to Kashi Yatra to Muhurtham to reception which is pretty common in every Indian Marriage.
I feel that this one is so outdated and the audience are mainly looking for good stories and thought-provoking stories which shake the audience like anything but this sounds like a class on marriage for the “getting married” couples who totally have no clue about what the hell is going on?
My best advice is to watch the Telugu dubbed versions of Sooraj Barjatya’s films which will give you an insight of marriages and its rituals, rather than getting a moral science lesson.
