Kalyanam Kamaneeyam is a perfect antidote to the over dose of masala that this season has brought into theatres writes Rajeshwari Kalyanam
Sankranti films are usually expected to be watched by families and adding to this year’s festival releases is this simple love story adding a little more choice for the romantic at heart.
The film starts with Siva (Santosh Sobhnan) with his mother’s support telling his father that he wishes to get married, and the girl is ready. The father in his inimitable style pokes fun at his son who has been unemplyed for an year now. We come to know as the film progresses that despite scoring good marks he struggles in the job market, and situations turn unfavourable many times.
However due to an unavoidable situation in bride’s family (mother suffers from Cancer and hopes to see her daughter get married at the earliest) the girl’s parents are in a hurry. Siva and Sruti get married and both decide not to take help from any one and deal with all that happens – both good and bad. All is well as the young couple romance, take care of each other. Siva continues to search for a job even as Sruthi promises to be supportive. All hell breaks loose when Sruthi takes note of a a vacancies advertisemt in her office. She tells him to try for the job – which turns out to be the catalyst to all problem. A beautiful fairy tale turns sour.
What has gone wrong in their life. Who is the reason?
The story of love and romance turns into that of misunderanding, broken hearts and a discord in marriage. How is that resolved?
All these questions are answered as this one hour 40 minute flick progresses.
Kalyanam Kamaneeyam starts in a pleasant way with the director keeping the screenplay simple and adding the drama and fun with the dialogues and well written scenes. The film moves forward in a swift yet unhurried pace. There’s action, some really good music and background score to that carry the emotions forward.
Anil Kumar Alla’s debut film is an easy breezy watch. It is a perfect antidote to the over dose of masala that this season has brought into theatres.
Kalyanam Kamaneeyam with Santosh Sobhan and debutant inTelugu films – Priya BhavaniShankar in lead, has many moments that reach out to people’s hearts. The audience become a part of their life wishing well for the couple – which works for the film in addition to the screenplay, editing and music that play their roles.
Kalyanam Kamaneeyam Movie Review
Plus – Happy film with no dull moment. Performamces by lead actors is a major plus ably supported by good writers who wrote the dialogues. Music adds to the feel good factor.
Minus: While the film offers good choice to festive mood…it surely falls short of a theatrical experience to stand for long innnings in theatres. OTT is another story.
