What is bad: The music is a minus point to the film. Manisarma's score is ordinary and the picturisation is also strictly ok. The placement of the songs in the second half was also bad. The extremely routine slambang climax in the end takes away some of the sheen from the film as does the heavy sister sentiment. Shades of Pokiri (especially in the item song) creep in sometimes. Finally, the fact that Souryam is like a lot of other Gopichand films restricts its appeal to a large extent.
Me Thinks: If you like all Gopichand's brand of action movies, Souryam is a decent one time watch. The comedy will keep you engrossed and the action episodes are well shot. A film made in the perfect (6 songs, 5 fights) mode – not great, not bad...
Tailpiece: Why does everyone in Kolkata talk exclusively in Telugu? I mean, not a word in Bengali even though the entire first half is set in Kolkata. Cinematic liberty? A bit too much, me thinks!
