Promising actor Sree Vishnu’s new movie, Samajavaragamana, directed by Ram Abbaraju, hit the screens today. The film generated a decent buzz before its release. Check out our review to find out whether the film has succeeded in entertaining the audience or not.
Bala Subrahmanyam (Sree Vishnu), also known as Balu, works as a ticket seller at a popular multiplex in Hyderabad. His father, Uma Maheshwara Rao (Naresh), is striving to complete his degree and meets Sarayu (Reba Monica John) in an exam hall. Sarayu later becomes a paying guest at Uma’s house and falls in love with Balu, who usually treats all girls like sisters. Eventually, Balu also develops feelings for her. However, he uncovers a shocking story about Sarayu’s family. What happens next and how Balu solves the issue form the crux of the story.
Plus Points :
After Vivaha Bhojanambu, director Ram Abbaraju is back with another neat comedy drama. His narration without any boring moments, especially in the first half, is a plus point of this movie.
Sree Vishnu is back with a comedy movie in which he performs with so much ease. His comedic timing is an asset, and he utilizes it well in this movie. He impresses everyone with witty punches and emotional dialogues as well.
Reba Monica John is surprisingly good in her role. Usually, heroines don’t have much space in comedy films, but here in Samajavaragamana, she ably plays well in comedy and emotional scenes. She also unleashes her dancing skills in this film, which are very good to watch.
Naresh Vijaya Krishna once again proves that he can pull off any role with utmost ease. His performance as an old-age student struggling to finish his bachelor’s degree is enjoyable, and his clothing and expressions also evoke laughs.
Srikanth Iyengar also performs well in his given role. Vennela Kishore gets a small role, but he makes everyone laugh whenever he appears on the screen. The remaining artistes are okay in their respective roles.
The monologue scene and spontaneous dialogues of Sree Vishnu throughout the movie are good to watch on the screen.
Minus Points :
The story is nice, but the latter half feels a bit dragged. The director should have taken better care of the screenplay in the second half. Meanwhile, the screenplay in the first half is good, and he manages to narrate the story without any lag.
The film has some key characters, and the director should have used them properly. For instance, Sudarshan, known for his comedy timing, should have been given more scenes where he can evoke more laughs. Rajiv Kanakala’s character should also have been written better.
The scenes with Srikanth Iyengar feel monotonous because his dialogues about relationships are repetitive, leading to a sense of boredom.
The director wants Samajavaragamana to be a hilarious family entertainer, and it’s fine. But he should have taken proper care to handle the emotional scenes well, especially in the climax portion. The drama in the climax feels unnatural.
The songs are not great, and except for a couple of songs, the remaining ones will be easily forgotten once the movie is finished.
Technical Aspects :
Ram Abbaraju scores decent marks as a director. However, he could have concentrated more on screenwriting to make Samajavaragamana a better film.
The cinematography by Raam Reddy is nice, and the score by Gopi Sundar elevates a few scenes in places. The editing by Chota K Prasad is neat, and he could have trimmed a few repetitive scenes in the second hour to make Samajavaragamana a more enjoyable laugh riot. The producers took good care of the production values.
On the whole, Samajavaragamana is a hilarious and engaging family entertainer with decent performances from Sree Vishnu, Naresh, and Reba Monica. Except for some repetitive scenes in the second half, the film is a perfect option for everyone this weekend.
